That is an impressive list of Guests. A video and/or photos would be terrific to see.
I have to ask...what is the '1966 Daytona Mustang'?

It was the Coupe they crashed in the movie.

Thanks for those photos and explanation of the movie car in the Daytona 24 Hour Race. It make sense to me now.

That Coupe appears to be a replica of the 1965 R model 5R538 in that paint scheme.
I have it noted that it had engine issues in the actual race, nothing about any incident (added drama for the movie).

5R212 was the Micheal Reina (or Riena?) - Don Kerney driven R model, but it was #90

5R538 was the Roger West - Richard Macon, Treadwell 5R238 R model.
West drove it in '66 (#99) and '67 (#18). It was sold to Charlie Kemp for 1968.
