If nobody has sent you anything you could try Trackforum.com Their historical forum is very civilised and Indy-focussed.

Contemporary photographs of the cockpit (or most any other significant close-up details) of the '73-'77 AJ Foyt Riley Coyote probably aren't very plentiful, as those were years when, if a photographer got that close to a Coyote, he ran a pretty good risk of eating his camera.

Foyt was besieged by those questioning just about everything regarding those cars, and he appears to have played along--witness their covering of the nose of the car immediately upon pulling into the pits (trying to give the impression that something about the inlet ducting was the reason behind the car's consistently high practice speeds), and so on.

That said, if you can locate (online, or in books) any pics of the Lindsay Hopkins Riley Rocket, that chassis was quite similar in many ways to the Coyote. And, of course, pics of Model 6 Eagles do abound, including cockpit shots.
