All cars were originally built as coupes. Later the chassis 001 and 002 were converted into roadsters by Chevrolet Engineering. After that the Chevrolet board, who had already claimed Chevrolet to be out of any motorsport activities before, ordered the cars to be destroyed. So the coupes were quickly sold to privateers, while roadsters were kept in secret in Chevy hands for only occasional shows and were sold to Penske and Wintersteen in 1966.
