The regulations (Appendix C of the International Sporting Code) required cars to be vaguely street legal with lights, horns, etc. But as laws vary from country to country they couldn't require them to be street legal.
Points are a nightmare. There were seven different championships over the years 1953-92, each with different scoring systems. Generally only the highest placed car of a marque scored points and most years there was a best x from y scores to count, but this was something like y/2, y/2 +1 ( y even) and y/2 +1/2 (y odd).
In 1981 a drivers' championship was introduced.
Sometimes class results counted, sometimes overall, sometimes a hybrid.
They are all given in Peter Higham's International Motor Racing Guide and I'm sure in other books and maybe on a website or two..
All very complicated.
