This looks like Spa Belgium, or the Nurburgring. I don't recall ever seeing a Daytona coupe with that # on the rear window  ???
Behind is a series 11 Ferrari GTO, like the one that just sold for 48 million  :o a bargain considering the price of the last GTO with the regular body that sold for 70 million  ::)

Manecas Pereira da Silva, '69 Mustang Angola.   :o  looks  like they just threw a cage in it and went racing, still on white walls & stock rims.

Found this online, hope it's not been posted previously. 1963 Road America, lots of great images of cars and their drivers.

Wonder who drove the Corvair pace car?   He really had to do some fancy pedaling to keep in front of that pack!

Hopefully for him it was one of the factory turbocharged Corvair Sypder's
