A friend sent this photograph my way. I believe it is from an early LeMans effort.
I’m looking for other non-fiberglass race car photographs. Post ‘em as you may find ‘em.

Thanks, RP

I believe it is from an early LeMans effort.

If this is a period photo, it's probably the Hezemans/ Quester #51 CSL at the '73 Le Mans.

The car finished 11th overall, and won its class.
TS identified the car's race category as Tournée Spéciale (Special Touring, Group 2).

Early Le Mans effort, I think I get it, group 2 before the fiberglass.

If there were other cars, I’d love to see the steel body photos. Thank you.

My mistake, I should’ve posted this with the Rob Siegel discussion on CS & CSL vehicles. Thank you Rob for the data on these old school cars.

Oops, difficult to tell…Does this car have the fiberglass flares?
Upon further review, it has the flares. Wish it didn’t. It will make doing a tribute race car …just not the same.
Not a fan of the fiberglass.
