1970 Chinook MK12 news, pictures, specifications, and information
The Chinook MK12 USAC car was used in Formula 5000 Competition. It shared many similarities to the Lotus 70, some believing it was an exact copy or possibly even an original Lotus chassis. Power was by a Ford Boss 302 engine. Drivers in competition from 1974 through 1976 included Dennis Reed and Tony Maracki.

The car is currently owned by a NY individual and raced in HSR competition.
