I'm in the process of rebuilding this car and struggling for pictures from its AMR years. Pics of XOO 349F are quite common as well as pics of XOO 346F. Models exist of XOO 344F and XOO 348F based on ETCC cars. I have pictures of XOO 347F from 1972 onwards but nothing from the AMR years. Can anyone help? TIA.

Doesn't that cutaway have 349 on it? It's also a bit strange in purporting to be a Gp5 car but has standard trim, including rear seat, on one side (which at that time was only required in Gp2).

347 seems to be a bit of a mystery, prior to Alec Poole. Even the records published by Graham Robson only refer to "loaned to several race teams" prior to sale to Poole. Was it purely a test car with AMR, maybe replacing 345 that was written off in testing early in 68 prior to any competition appearance? I can't even recall who other than AM had a Ford-loaned TC in the BSCC then but what GR writes suggests it wasn't with AM throughout.

Assume from what you say Greg that car is in B'dos and has never been back to UK since it came out for AP for the Caribbean series in 73(?). Is it in Gp5 spec (torsion bar rear - 68) or Gp2 (69/70)?
