Within it are these two images of Dan Gurney driving CSX2259:

Here's a cover of SPORTS CAR illustrating CSX2323 at Targa Florio, 1964.
The illustration seems to show Gurney's dark helmet & goggles, while the photo is of Jerry Grant driving it:

In this May 1965 USRRC program from Riverside Raceway is this lovely photo of the Robbins twins with a nice street car:

George Watters just informed me about a detail I had not noticed in the above photo of the twins - that it was taken at LAX.
Now I see the blast wall in the background.

I must have been distracted . . .

Thanks George!

Wow, they provided their performance specs too!  I was born in the wrong time.

This b&w photo of Jerry Titus' Group II Sedan was in the June 1968 Mid-Ohio race program.

The horizontal strips of tape over the lights caught me eye - they're unusual & look kinda' cool.
And the color photograph of it at Daytona in February 1968 gives nice additional detail about its color:

 I think the light blue # 2 car was the Moffat-Kwech-Follmer entry at Daytona in '68. the caption to the b&w photo from the Mid-Ohio program is incorrect. the red # 1 car was the Titus-Bucknum entry.

honker,

Thanks for the correction about the wrong caption - my knowledge of the FIA Sedans is not very strong.
Not having the driver's names above the doors made that easy to slip by someone like myself!

The photo below nicely shows the two cars you are talking about, I believe:

Paper clipped inside this 1964 Riverside race program was a ticket stub - how often do we see something like that?
So I scanned both sides of the stub - the front side shown here is slightly larger than actual size and then I magnified the back side of it because it had a really nice diagram showing how the track was situated in relation to other roads at that time:

Oh, and it also had this ad that shows the address & phone number of the first HI-PERFORMANCE MOTORS, INC. :

This race flag illustration was in an April 1967 Marlboro Speedway program, and the R-Model caught my eye - I recognized it as Mark Donahue's 5R105.
So I added this nice b&w photo of them at Marlboro on 9/26/65 below it.

I had always been curious about the blacked out areas on the photograph, thinking that it was an alteration to the photograph or something, for whatever reason.
But then when I saw this photo in a 1967 race program, I realized the black strips were actually on the car in 1965.
I know that FORD and MD. are blacked out on the quarter panel, and likely the driver's name above the door, but I'm not sure what was above the BP on the fender.

Does anybody know the reason for the 'censorship'?

The blackout above BP would be the mechanic's name.  The rear quarter was Archway Ford with Balto, MD underneath.
Not sure why they'd blackout 'Ford' and MD, but I'm guessing the mechanic may have had a change.  One mechanic was George.....don't remember his last name.
