    If anyone has the Nov.'63 issue of Hot Rod would you kindly check the Bonneville coverage for any photos of the Vesco #444 streamliner that ran that year. It was powered by an Offy 4 and set a class record. In particular I'm looking for a front view. I've already checked all the other usual suspects. This is the last one to check. Thanks for any help.

    I found my copy of the Nov 63 Hot Rod magazine. Only picture of the car in it is the same one in the artical above of the engine. I could scan it and post it in the morning.

    Thanks for looking but no need if that's all there is. I was hoping for a front view of the car that shows the unique front 'windshield' in the nose of the car.

    I agree, but there are no images on Google of this particular car in 1963 showing the front (as far as I could find). I've looked and I've also contacted Vesco and landracing.com and checked Car Craft and Rod & Custom and Popular Hot Rodding and Hot Rod and etc.... So this is why I turned to the Hamb hoping someone might have something, sort of as a last resort. So if you have a photo of the car as run in 1963 or know someone that does, the help would be appreciated. Thanks.
