    The custom painted script on the #5 Hawk's door says: Avanti R3 Powered I think, if I remember correctly. [^]

    The guy in the Truck looking at Andy is thinking: hey wait a minute, isn't that Andy Granatelli?
    What the heck is he doing with a bunch of STUDEBAKERS? [:0]

      Very cool pic. I see that Sears got it on the action, too. Provided the racing tires, perhaps?

              I'm glad you put that grin and wink on there. For a minute there I thought you had gone off the deep end.[]

                  No, neither Ford nor Mopar but a 64 Daytona HT. The Hot Rod road test car. Seial 64v 1078.

                    Not available that early. The Daytona behind the Hawk had prototype, hand made R3 emblems at that time. Grill and cat eyes were both hand made.

                      Not knowing anything about racing on salt, why use those tires rolling off the Sears trailer, is it because the slicks with thin raised center threads track straigher? Seems counter intuitive to me versus regular tires.

                        Bonneville tires are usually very round-shouldered for minimum contact (and therefore friction) with the salt. They also call for much higher pressure than treaded street or racing tires.

                            That is an International Harvester VCO or DCO series Emeryville cab over engine truck. The VCO was gasoline powered and the DCO was diesel powered.

                              Interesting that the GT Hawk has whitewalls on it.
