  1. Mr Armstrong is NOT a race driver. The car was restored for Mr Romack at Phil Reilly and Company, Corte Madera, CA. What does “professionally race prepared” mean? Louie prepares cars for AMATURE racing.

  2. You might want to check your spelling on the engine. Don’t believe that ‘WESTLAKE’ in Harry’s actual last name. I could be wrong. Check the Dan Gurney AAR website.

    1. Weslake is the correct spelling. I used to see him often around racing circuits in England in the sixties. Forty years of engineering history with many manufacturers beginning with Bentley, William Lyons before Jaguar was formed all the way up to Dan Gurney.(with many others)

  3. The car is located outside of Canepa designs and was sold by them. The pictures include the history and some controversy surrounding the car.
