Anyone recognize this race car? I'm guessing it's a 1968 car (judging by my Hot Wheels collection )

Does that paddock look familiar? Or is that called the garage area

From the Why Don't We? brochure

Dave,

I don't know what chassis that is but I believe it's Formula B car.

The car has 4 lug Revolution wheels and side draught induction which are typical of FB cars.

Formula B was essence a Formula Ford with a twin cam motor and wider tires.

OK I looked at the brochure more in depth.

I think these would have run as Formula 3 car which are similar to the SCCA Formula B cars.

These would be 1100lbs with around 175-190bhp.

Thanks. I just had a look at F3. The other day I tried F2, having completely forgotten all about F3

Formula ThreeQuote:
Formula Three ... abbreviated as F3, is a third-tier class of open-wheel formula racing. The various championships held in Europe, Australia, South America and Asia form an important step for many prospective Formula One drivers.



It looks most like the 1970 F3 cars. Magunam is quite the unique name, i can find almost zero info on it

you have a good eye. Revolution classic 4-spoke wheel since 1967

Dave my eye isn't that good; Revolution wheels are pretty much standard on many open wheel cars from that era.

If you attend vintage races probably half the Formula Fords are running them.
