I could send you one of the other pics where the bottle is more recognizable, but I would get tossed from the group ...
Maybe privately, as I think you might enjoy it.

Here is a cutaway of Jack Nethercutt's Mirage of the mid-1960's. The rather extensive article from the February 1966 issue of Sprots Car Graphic that contained this cutaway must have assumed that the reader's eye would fill in a lot, as a substantial section of William A. Moore's drawing was missing across the binding. Thanks to a lot of work by macoran the car is rendered whole:

Posted Image

The car's body was designed by Peter Brock and the chassis engineered by Ted Depew. As can be seen in the cutaway, the chassis is riveted sheet aluminum . . . lots of rivets. At the time of its conception attention to aerodynamics still centered around reducing drag, specifically by reducing the frontal area. This led to a decision to use 13-inch diameter wheels. (Similar thinking led to the Shadow Mk.1 Can- Am car and the Tyrrell P34. F1 car.) To fit the largest brakes within these wheels, riveted sheet metal wheels were designed that eliminated the drop center and featured demountable rims. The "monocoque" wheels with Airheart brakes and vented rotors saved 14 pounds per corner compared to the typical cast wheel and Girling brake.

As part of the program to achieve the best power-to-weight ratio, a version of the aluminum Oldsmobile V8, prepared by Traco, was used. With full fuel tanks and driver, the car reportedly weighed 1,620 pounds (736 kg.) Unfortunately, the engineering and meticulous construction that went into the car delayed its introduction to the point it was competing against Lola T70's, Chaparrals, and McLarens with bigger engines and more advanced aerodynamics. As commented on another website "two years earlier it would have been a world beater."

Here is a cutaway of an interesting small sports racer, the Sceptre, courtesy of macoran's repair work of a drawing of William A. Moore:

Posted Image
The Sceptre was built in Oregon by Dan Odenborg, Scott Hamilton, and Ron Courtney to race in Class F at a time, the early 1960's, when a great deal of inventiveness was being applied to sports racing cars on the West coast of the U.S., perhaps inspired by the Cooper Monaco and the Lotus 19.


Also have a look at Dan Odenborg's previous effort, the Mercury H bomb Special,page 222 post #8861 posted by Roger Lund

Marc,
Where do you come up with this stuff? I think that I have all of them in my files at about 9-10k wide files ... something like 11x17-inches @ 600dpi. Part of the material for my "book" project, which is not exactly steaming right along at the moment. Sort of dropped the publisher that I was talking with, as they wanted to simplify it so much that it did not seem to be my project anymore ... that my project, is of course way overblown for the subject. At least there is probably not a lot to do with the captions ... since hot rodders and drag racers don't read all that much. Show me the pi'tchers ...
Every once in a while I come up with a new subject, like your early Odenberg Mercury. Had the other one in that large file, but not the one you had sent. Since many of the illustrations will be at smaller sizes, just to vary the look and to keep it manageable in size, that thing will work great .. unless you have a larger file of it ... :)
Will try to get a few more of the current scans fixed to send over the next few days, by the way.
And, Werks ... you come up with some of the more eclectic subject matter in the group. Always interesting, thank-you.
Tom West

GOOGLE Tom, GOOGLE has everything in the air

I just typed in William Moore illustrator, and google linked into that.
I googled my own name once and got the shock of my life, my mug in full view !!

I haven't tried googling Tom West yet !
Might have some tasty pics of the lady and the bottle ?

I too got lucky on that site, Marc. :up: But only regarding the Ford Fairlane GT. I hadn't come across the amount of material that you did.

It certainly is a beautiful car, especially in the photographs taken from that show in 1963. (One such photo, has been 're-published' in the Racing Colours: British Racing Green, book)

Here is another interesting link, relating to Lola, which also contains a cutaway of the Ford Fairlane Lola GT http://www.metaphors...airlane-Lola-GT

Really lovely cars.

Ah, no! If anything it's quantity rather than quality. Besides, at the end of the day it is somebody else's work.

I think, for me, one of the best, most unique things about this thread, are the contributions made by the many Pro's that have appeared. Those who have taken time to share their own work, an aspect of their technique or just a bloody good story.

All...
I suspect most of us have the majority of these in larger sizes, though perhaps not with all of the SCG nomenclature or formating. I have all but the Lotus 23, the BMW 2000 CS, or the Fiat altered Gasser, most in at least 2000 pixel sizes, several in double that. If anyone wants something specific, please ask and I will be happy to post or email the file(s). I only have the OSCA 1100 in the same size as the site has it and the Lotus 29 only about 40% larger - if someone has a more significant copies I would appreciate their being posted (or forwarded to me).

This cutaway of the Harrison Special by William A. Moore has been posted before, but I would like to submit it again, as this scan from the December 1963 issue of Sports Car Graphic not only credits him but also shows a couple of his sketches of the car. Perhaps this might give a glimpse into his method of working.
Posted Image
A little information on the car itself: It was a modified Lotus 19 which was sponsored by J. Frank Harrison and driven by Lloyd Ruby. The modification performed by master mechanic Jerry Eisert involved the installation of a Ford Fairlane 289-cubic-inch V8 driving through a Colotti gearbox. The body was designed by Chuck Pelly and fabricated by Troutman -Barnes.

The car did fairly well in the Fall 1963 series of SCCA road races. The name Harrison Special was applied to a couple of USAC cars in subsequent years. Lloyd Ruby passed away recently from natural causes, no thanks to cars like this. Before we get too nostalgic for those simpler days of race car design and manufacture, here is a photo of him driving this car. Note that the highest point is the top of his helmet. :|
