Driven by Milt Minter and Alan Moffat occasionally in the 1967 season. (questioned through further researchby Jeff Canon and Ken Mann). It seems that it was rather driven by Fred Sutherlandt, before Fred got his own 67 car #24.
After a 9th finish in the A/S Southern Pacific Division in 1970 the car ended up in Shady Cove OR.
"Peter Cordts sold the car in 1970 to a Les Huddelston in Portland Oregon, Les ran the car in 2 publicized races, the Portland Grand Prix-Portland Rose cup races. I was able to finally track this information down, by car colors and sponsors. In 1970 it was raced at PIR in blue with door # 31, same color as when raced by Pete, and sponsor was International House of Pancakes. In 1973 It was again raced at the same event, this time in yellow with door # 29. When my dad bought the car around 1974, it was still yellow with the I H O P, sponsor decals."
The car underwent a
restoration" from 1990-2010.
