Have we seen this Cobra hauler yet with GT40? Tractor may be the one at page 15 reply#223?

It looks like what seems to be "Laundry drying out" on the front bumper of the tractor! ;D

Coulda been a Shelby owner many times in the 80's/90's. Was always so close but yet, so far away for me......

Rich, here's one from the I believe the '69 Bridgehampton Trans-Am. The old man is having a think, and that could be Revson or Kwech ?

The storage lockers are open, and there's a third car inside.

Nice find ... in color too. Thanks for posting

CS in a suit and his Stetson...
I'm guessing that is Kwech. He DNF'd according to my notes.
The sign on the door is laughable. I doubt that worked very well.

Interesting that the station wagon is a Mercury.  Wonder if it was a rental (and no Fords were available) given the internal rivalry between the Ford and Mercury divisions.

CS sitting there immediately reminded of him sitting on the wall talking to KM on the box front of this Revell model in my collection 😎

Wonder why the rear bumper was left on the R model?  Usually bumpers are taken off for weight reduction.

002 was probably the only one like that.  All the later R models were delivered w/out rear bumpers.

Nice find Steve...I need to correct this 1963 cab license plate to '6308 CC' on the list early in this thread.
I have no idea where that was taken.


I like the small, yet nice overhead photo of the pioneer days wagon caravan at Le Mans, from a few posts up.

Great photo of 5R002 with the Ford F-series pickup. It was taken at GVR (Green Valley Raceway) in Texas at the debut race Feb 2nd 1965!

Thanks for sharing these.
