Last one! Iso Bizzarrini before and after a monster mash. Driver Martin Stretton was OK apart from a broken elbow, but the car was a mess.

Oh, my... that is a mess... It's good to hear that the driver was OK, ... and now he can move on to fix his car...

Best regards,

"A MESS"...? That's putting it mildly...obviously I'm not a 'wrench', but THAT looks like a total disaster to me!!! If 'she' was mine I'd still be crying...

Regards

I like the 3rd photo with the (?) '66 Barracuda and the (?) '63 Ford Galaxie. That full sized Ford must be a handful in the corners.:)

I think the blue Corvette Gran Sports are just incredible... right up there with the Cobra Daytona Coupe.

Galaxies in England.

I remember when the Galaxies first arrived at circuits in Britain. They were considered a joke - until we saw how how fast they were. And of course, they were difficult to overtake! The classic British saloon car racers at the time were Minis, Imps, Ford Anglias and Cortinas, and Jaguars - each of them dwarfed by the Galaxies. Racing was exciting, to say the least, on many of the tight circuits; the fastest brits would be all over them in the bends, only to get left behind on the straights. This often averaged out and provided really close races. Alan Mann was the first to enter these American Fords, and he hired quality drivers, but this paved the way for many more entries of American sedans; among them the Camaro, which was probably the most successful. I never saw the Barracuda or Mercury Comet race back then, but the Plymouth beat all the others at Goodwood, after the faster Mustangs were eliminated.

Sorry....I meant to attach this photo to my post above.
See what I mean about 'difficult to pass'? :)

What was the estimated value of the Iso Bizzarrini car that was in the accident?
The street version would probably be somewhere between US$250,000 - $350,000. A period racer would be more (especially in Europe, any car with FIA papers commands a premium), particularly if it had significant period race history, in which case it could be substantially more.
