Well looking to the right in the picture, we can see that they have the jack stands standing by just in case the hydraulic jack fails!
I raced Nascar sanctioned circle track for 10 yrs back in 80's early 90's and if the track promoter or owner EVER seen us with a car in the air w/o jack stands, he would ban us from the track for a year!!!

I might have jumped to a bad conclusion. Look closer at the LR photo. The jack doesn't look like it could be holding up the car. There may be jack stands in place we can't see.

tesGT350,
Good call on the creeper, I can't imagine that rolling on the rough dirt.

Dkutz,
Do you mean a toy or a real vehicle?
-A company called M2 makes a 1:64 scale diecast of the Econoline panel van in a CSSHPD (driving school) decoration and a "Powered by Ford" version.
They also have a transporter of the cab/box trailer as well as a Cab/open trailer hauling a 65 GT350.
-If you mean a real van there was a Econoline window van at SAAC 42 with the "CSSHPD / Race Assistance Program" lettering on it.

I found this CSSHPD van. It is so hard to find anything around here at our walmarts. We have 3 within a 50 mile radius, and we don't get hardly any M2's or Johnny Lightning or anything for that fact :-\

 The real vehicles.  They would be so cool to transport your cars with!

Just found this decent color photo of the F250 with bed cap and the CM/1-64 on the blue painted trailer.
This might be a third single trailer, by that CA license plate number. This was at Riverside Oct 11, 1964.

Looking at how the Rear Wheel is only about 3 inches off the ground and the Front Wheel is about 10 to 12 inches off the ground, I would there is just one Jack Stand under the car and about where that guy is standing.

I can't be sure, but I think this was taken while packing for Daytona or Sebring early 1965 in Venice while parked on Princeton Drive.
We can see a hint of the fencing under the rear left side. It a tough photo to make a good call on with nothing else visible.

Speaking of Sebring 65, I have several original posters/booklets from Sebring 64, 65 also an original
COBRA nineteen sixty-four poster overall finishing order in the GT Classification.  Cool stuff. May be selling this stuff soon.

 RE: reply #183:
  Wondering how accurate the Econoline could be as I've never seen a CS van with a black painted lower section.  If I saw one though, I'd still likely buy this.

That photo is not an accurate replica. Die-cast companies typically sell alternate color "Variations" to help offset the cost of tooling.
This M2 company does make a correct painted version in the lighter blue two-tone for the CSSHPD van and a second version with the Powered by Ford logo.

Did you see the photos of the real window van at INDY / SAAC 42?

Rich, here's another one, this is at Laguna Seca for the Can-Am race in '68. I'm not sure if Shelby had a entry in this race ? or if this a support truck, didn't Shelby have a race tire business ?

sorry 'bout that Chevy guy on the left, Dick Guldstrand   ;)

about the size I fiddled around and that's what came up, at least I'm able to get a pic on the forum   ::)
