Remember the John Woolfe 1956 Fiat transporter of the late '60's-Ex Scarab/Shelby/Alan Mann/Steve McQueen'Le Mans' it's up for sale at the RM Monterey auction on August 17/18-Restored to its Shelby colours-Estimates vary from $850,000 to $1.1 million.I remember Mark Stratton driving it into the pits at the Pod with one of the side doors bent in reckon it was a bit big for the Bedfordshire lanes!.

Think the '57 Chevy on the top deck belonged to Tex Blake or maybe Dave Riswick.
If my memory serves me right the rear of the twin rear axles on the transporter steered at low speed - anyone else remember?

Here's some more pics of the JWR transporter, but not at a racetrack!! Instead, this was the famous (or infamous!) Beach Party at Greatstones nr Camber Sands in 1968. As well as transporting the racecars, it came in extremely useful as a grandstand!!
