I believe that it is General Curtis Lemay

The first attached photo shows Johnny Capels in the Al Unser Chevy at Terre Haute; probably in 1968. This is the former ECCA sprint car that several drivers found success driving. I believe the car today is in the Unser museum.
The other is a great photo of Tony Bettenhausen alongside the Novi at Indy in 1957. Jean Marcenac is in the cockpit to warm up the engine while Radio Gardner waits with the starter.

The car is a 1903 Panhard et Levassor which belongs to the British National Motor Museum as far as I know. This shot was taken in 1965. It is a regular competitor in the annual London-Brighton veteran car run.

Built by Cotton Werksman about 1968.
