The359 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Chevrolet Corvette GTP

Here's the information I've found so far on the 7 Chevrolet Corvette GTPs built by Lola. Nearly all have different Lola type numbers because of the years they were built and in what fashion.

Cars ending in 0 were originally built with a Chevy Turbo V6, while cars ending in 1 were originally built with a Chevy V8. The cars did not necessarily stay in that configuration though. The car ending in 2 is the Lotus-tuned development car.

T710 #HU01
* Racing Systems (1984)
* Hendrick Motorsport (1985 - 1986)

T711 #HU02
* Lee Racing (1985 - 1986)
* Hendrick Motorsport (1986)

T86/10 #HU01
* Hendrick Motorsport (1986 - 1987)

T86/10 #HU02
* Hendrick Motorsport (1986 - 1988)

T86/12 #HU03
* GM testbed fitted with a Lotus active suspension system. Raced by Hendrick once in 1987, DNFed. Had the turbo V6.

T87/10 #HU01
* Hendrick Motorsport (1988)

T88/11 #HU01 (originally mislabeled by Lola as T88/10)
* Peerless Racing (1988 - 1989)
* Eagle Performance, renamed the car "Eagle 700" and installed their own 10.2L V8. Attempted Le Mans in 1990, failed to qualify.

Did Hendrick retain any of the cars?

Where are these cars.

Which was the one that went up in flames with Doc Bundy bailing out, in West Palm was it?

I've got a book on the Corvette GTP, its got a black cover (I'm assuming you guys have seen it too). Its not on me at the moment so I dont know the author but its got plenty of info on the whole program. Good read if your a fan of the Corvette GTP racer.

Re: Corvette GTP

I have the book "Corvette Racers" from 1992. The book doesn't identify the car lost at Palm Beach, but Doc Bundy described that car as being the best chassis.
