Peter Gethin's Car - Road Atlanta, September 13, 1970.



Notice how the cars for this race had vertical "stabilizers" atop their front fenders? These actually appeared for the second race of the season. The cars had so much torque that the front ends would get real "light" during the fierce acceleration they were capable of. The fins were added to enhance directional stability.

Notice also how the "spats" behind the front tires have disappeared, exposing the unpainted aluminum "tub"?

Barely visible are the scale sized "knock-off nuts" at each wheels center. These and the characteristic McLaren - 4 spoke centers are moulded in plastic as inserts, fitting our machined aluminum wheels to a "T" !
