Bob Akin’s Coca-Cola sponsored team had already been winding down when he took delivery of this air-cooled IMSA 962 in late 1987; it was the last car campaigned by Akin, who for the first time in his IMSA career did not drive his team car in a race.

BACKGROUND

Until then, this Chapman chassis C04 carried on with authority, wearing the beautiful Black and Red color scheme with sponsors Yokohama, Paradyne and Akin’s own Hudson Wire Company, finishing 5th in its maiden outing at the Road America 500 in the hands of legendary drivers James Weaver and Vern Schuppan. This was followed up with an effort in the hands of the man who has won every major road

racing endurance race, Hurley Haywood, teaming up with Weaver at Columbus for an 8th place finish. The third and last race for C04 was the Del Mar 2-hour with James Weaver the sole driver. Campaigned in the Historic Sportscar Racing series with great success, this 962 is in excellent condition and is race ready in its stunning Yokohama/Paradyne Black and Red livery.
