The McLaren (64)/Hill (65) car went to Patterson for John McDonald to drive. I would imagine, but I'm not sure, that the McLaren car (Bruce never again campaigned in the Tasman, too busy with F1 development, V8 Indy Ford engines, etc) is the car of which you speak.

I think you misread my post as I did not refer to the car as “the McLaren car”.
The car that was pictured in the Miller site was Phil Hill’s Cooper that crashed and burned at Zeltweg in 1964.
I can assure you that is the car driven by Abernethy, Marwood and others. McLaren had nothing to do with the car after it was rebuilt. It definitely was not one of the cars that Bruce brought to New Zealand.
For confirmation I quote from Nye’s Cooper Cars book, page 276 – “Other Cooper aspects of the (Tasman) series included New Zealand speedway rider Bruce Abernethy rebuilding the cremated remains of Phil’s Zeltweg-wrecked T66, winning sponsorship from Rothmans tobacco and fitting a 2.5 FPF…..”
