This book details the story of this car. The bottom two pictures on the cover show the 1983 livery.
The racecar is currently in its 1983 livery with all of its original decals and USAC registration stickers. It ran as recently as May of 2015 at IMS and was properly pickled for storage. As part of the collection of memorabilia, there are pit signs and a Dick Simon pit board.
There are Rolla Vollstedt's scrapbooks of news articles, even fuel receipts, and much Janet Guthrie information.
There is a video of Rolla Vollstedt documenting the starting procedure of the car in its current livery. There are crash damaged panels, suitable for wall hangings. The original molds for the early body ('77-'81) came with the car along with the original single strut wing.
The car is an amazing survivor with its original turbo Offy engine and has a fully documented history in Rolla Vollstedt's book and in Gordon Elliot White's book.
