Heinz Widebody Dillon Chassis C4 Corvette

[ Race Car / Touring / Sports ]

Dave Heinz (1934-1992) of Tampa, Florida was a prolific racer who began his lifelong passion for sportscar racing in 1959 driving a TR3 in a regional SCCA race. Between 1959 and 1987 when he finally retired from competitive racing at the age of 53, he competed in a wide variety of cars but most often in a Corvette. His first Corvette ride was in 1965 in a C-2. He drove with O.R. Constanzo, another Tampa-based racer who owned the 1969 L-88 that would become one of the most famous C-3 race cars of that era. From then on, Heinz was almost always at the wheel of a Chevrolet product, including Camaros, Corvettes and a Dekon Monza.

In the mid-80s, Dave decided to build one more Corvette, in this case a custom Dillon chassis based C-4 bodied racer.
