Jim recently found this photograph in his collection but doesn't know any details about it. We both agreed that what we do know for sure is that she's a babe! We both thought the driver kind of looks like Fred Van Beuren (5R108).

I do not see the recessed lip of an R-Model rear window, but I can for sure see an R-Model trunk pin stud plate. I have other photos of R-Models that have been retro-fitted with standard glass rear windows in 1967, and this may be one of those cases. It also seems that the rear valence may have been replaced as it does not have the top stripes on it.

I can't find this unique vertical tail stripe in any of my R-Model photos, and I also don't recognize the logo on the helmet and the quarter panel.

Maybe someone here can offer some info on this cool period photo, and I'll also email it to Howard and see if he may have any knowledge of it:



No side stripes?Huh?
Notice the "BP" on the doors and it looks like a car number on the truck right side.

Re: Vern's post #344 about the fake posters, back last year, I purchased a couple of supposedly "old" VIR race posters listed by this vendor on eBay, but I when I received them, it was obvious they were re-pops.  The original posters from GLOBE were 14"x22", not 11"x17" and were screen printed on a specific type of cardstock.  When I e-mailed the vendor, he professed ignorance, refunded my money and told me to keep the posters rather than return them.  Caveat Emptor!

If I remember correctly, Jeff went to the College for Creative Studies, so style has always been important to him.

CCS in Detroit is a great college for design. I was invited on a tour of their automobile design studio during my second year at Pratt Institute.
I should have transferred there or to the Art Center of Design in Pasadena, but they both wanted me to start over as a freshman.   

Hey Jeff, what was you major...maybe industrial or transportation design?

Howard responded right away. He said, "The car is definitely 5R102 and I believe the driver is Barrey Robles." How easy was that? Thanks Howard!

I see in the Registry that Barry and his brother bought it in 1967 and raced it thru 1971. He sold it in 1978 for $10,000 to finance a swimming pool! You read that right...

Thanks again Howard - and Jim, keep scouring your archives for more photos like this!

Thanks Kieth

Howard to the rescue!       ...and yes, Thanks to Jim for sharing this photo!

It must have been late in 67 after the race season ended when Barry bought 5r102. Photos from '67 show it driven by Ron Dykes through November.
I have only seen one very small photo of when Robles owned it. Its just the center of the car forward, but it also shows no side stripes and Barry standing next to it.

Check this one out.

Here's Jim with The Pirate's (Ken Young) new purchase, 6S2375 (one of the four 1966 GT 350 convertibles!) at Ken's place in Mill Center, WI - circa 1976:
(note the "IN TOW" written on the rear panel - safety first!!)

Awesome picture!!

There has been discussion in the past if the current gold stripes on the car now are factory or if they should be white or if they even had them at all.  As far as I know there hasn't been any factory photos of the convertibles show up, so no one knows for sure what color the stripes were.  Maybe this photo will help with that.   Thank you for sharing!  That is a cool picture!

Very Cool photo!!!  Jim has that cool 70's vibe going on with his hair and sunglasses.

This is the earliest photo I have ever seen for the green convertible 6s2375, or any of the four '66 convertibles for that matter.

According to the registry by '76 the car had been repainted several times. So, the gold stripes question continues on.
Joe Wallace has repeatedly said it had the gold side stripes. Last I heard, he was still trying to find Derek Scott, the original owner.
Unfortunately, no known photos exist of these four '66 convertible, or the '67 convertible, from new.


Thanks for sharing Jim... and Kieth!
