Hi :)

I would need some color pictures of the Brabham BT7 raced by Rob Walker Team in 1965.

Thank you in advance. :)

This is part of the cover picture from Motor Sport, November 1965, just before the start of the US GP. It shows both Walker Brabhams, with Bonnier's BT7 empty on the grid (and apparently with a lump of rock used as a chock!), while Siffert's BT11 is being pushed back into position. Note the white stripes on Bondurant's and Rodriguez' Ferraris.

I think so, yes. His car is just off the picture to the left as you look at the grid, but there's no-one in the cockpit. Looks like he's doing a bit of industrial espionage while Jack's not around!
