Grand Sport Chassis 002 (and 001) were left to languish and converted to roadsters.  In 1966 GM found it cheaper to off load them to Roger Penske for the asking.  He installed big block engines and gave one to his good friend George Wintersteen to race.  As a limited production model it had no chance competing against prototypes and modifieds.  By mid-season George retired it.  The car passed through the hands of collectors but miraculously has been preserved as is.  Circumstances favored Fred Simeone whose foundation now owns and displays it among his legendary collection at his Philadelphia museum.  It is the centerpiece and draws crowds for an event each October co-hosted by Doug Fehan of the Corvette Racing Team.  The car is kept well maintained and in running order.  More details: http://registryofcorvetteracecars.com/ee/index.php/site/view_cars/411
