If you go to the FB site there are pics of the cars Dick has raced; hotrod Fords, Healey/Chev, ...

Dick Stockton alloy Mk.IV sports

I found these period photos on Dick Stockton's "the 71 Crowd" Facebook page. Thanks to Scott Adams and Dick for posting. I understand there were two alloy bodied Mk.IV cars. I believe Dick drove 100/70 in 1960-62, after Chuck Dietrich ran it in England. There is some question, as Dick told me the ca...

At speed in the navy blue Mk.IV-T E1185 and the brutal Hagemann modified sports.

Re: VRG race NJMP 2013

Joe M. remembers a Mk.1 in my area during mid '60s; thought it might be my car, but the colors didn't match the timeline. The 1960-61 Vineland SCCA regionals always had four Couriers, and July '60 started ten! Come up with a driver name and the body color and I may be able to match them. Verrry inte...
