The 2D was a closed-cockpit race car built by Chaparral in 1967. This was the first vehicle Chaparral entered in international events. It was based on the 2A, but had a fixed roof fitted (as well as some other features like new headlights) to meet regulations for the group 6 FIA/CSI racing events.



In the 1967 ADAC event at the Nürburgring, the 2D ran its first race. Although it competed against the best of what Ferrari and Porsche had to offer at the time, it was able to win on its first attempt.
