The Chaparral 2C was a racecar from 1965.

The 2C is the next car from the Chaparral lineup after the 2B. It came with the innovative in-car adjustable rear wing. The integrated spoiler/wing was designed to lie flat for low drag on the straights and tip up under braking through the corners.

This was a direct benefit of the clutchless semi-automatic transmission which kept the driver's left foot free to operate the wing mechanism. The 2C was based on a Chevrolet designed aluminum chassis and was a smaller car in every dimension than the 2B.

Without the natural non-resonant damping of the fiberglass chassis, Jim Hall nicknamed it the EBJ — "Eye Ball Jiggler".
