At the end of the Trans Am season Rodger Penske announced that he would be switching from the Chevy Camaro to the AMC Javelin for the 1970 championship. Chevy turned to long time partner, Jim Hall of Chaparral cars, to take over the factory entry for the Camaro. Hall built three new chassis for the 1970 season for himself and Ed Leslie. Vic Elford, and Joe Leonard also drove for the team that season. #1 is on of the three team cars built, and the only one known to exist.
The team was very competitive finishing in the top ten every race and taking one victory at Watkins Glenn with Vic Elford at the wheel. Jim Hall finished sixth in the final championship standings. This car has been meticulously restored to period correct perfection. It has run successfully at the Rolex Monterey Motorsport Reunion and Wine Country Classic. It is in race ready condition.
