    INCORRECT - the GT40 was modelled after the Lola Mk 6 which competed at Le Mans in 1963. The Lola T70 Coupe did not appear until 1966 although a roadster Lola T70 competed in CanAm races in 1965

    I did have, these were used cars, a 1949 Ford coup. 1951 Merc. 4 door,<o:p></o:p>
    this was a great drive-in car wide back seat.<o:p></o:p>
    1957 Olds 2dr HT.<o:p></o:p>
    But I ordered this one new from a dealer in 1968 before I knew what it was going to look like, <o:p></o:p>
    wish I still owned it now. One of my favorites, a 1969 Dodge Charger R/T, <o:p></o:p>
    with the classic copper with the black roof.<o:p></o:p>
    5 star Mag rims with very wide Goodyear tires. Could take Vets of the line every time….<o:p></o:p>

    Thank You for the reply.
    Since that photo was taken in 1957, I wonder what color of Red was used on the Coupe?

    There are utubes of Fordson tractors with those same screw drives replacing the wheels. They turn by steering brakes. They go on top of the snow no matter how deep according to the videos.

    My Pops & his brother dropping in an engine back in 1966. Check out the high tech swing/set engine hoist. He said the pipe started to bend half way through the job so they had to grab some 2x4's to support it.

    This black and white photograph shows the Aero Spray King plane and the 2,4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic acid tank from the Ong Aircraft Corporation in Manhattan, Kansas. 2,4-D, as it was commonly called, was a pesticide/herbicide used to control braodleaf weeds.

    One last photo from the Manhattan, Kansas area. All photos come from the Kansas Historical Society.

    This black and white photograph shows a view of a rail road sign for Zeandale, Kansas. The town founded in 1855 was located in Riley County eight miles east of Manhattan, Kansas, in the Deep Creek Valley area and along the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific Railroad. The name Zeandale is a combination of the Greek word "Zea" meaning corn and the English word "dale". Together, they mean corn-dale or corn valley. The town's name suggested by one of it's early settlers Josiah H. Pillsbury, was a reflection of the rich soil and bumper crops grown in the area.
    Date: Between 1940 and 1960
