we got new pics that may change some history records again. This is Don Pikes Mustang racer, that was mixed up in the SAAC registry to be the SA notchback prototype. Don Pike confirmed and also Chuck Cantwell that Don Pike built his car himself. But fact is it ended up in T/A races at Riverside and Green Valley.
Don Pike was the Shelby Engine Shop Manager and was in charge of show cars. He raced successfully a Holman-Moody Falcon in 1964 and Ford ordered Shelby to replace his Falcon with a Mustang racer according to http://www.legendsofriverside.com/legends/pike.html
Don Pike raced his notchback in 20 races acc. to above mentioned site.
