Yet again I have come across a vintage single seater nose, probably from the 1968-1971 era. What is even more intriguing is that it came with a radiator. From some photos I have dug up, it looks similar to the nose that was on Johnny Rutherford and Tony A2Z's rebodied Patrick Eagles in 1970 and 1971. The difference is that there seems to be two points on the corners of the Patrick cars
I also found a nose-less photo of the Rutherford car in 1973 when Bentley Warren raced it for Bay States Racing, and the radiator looks to be identicle, so I feel that at least, the radiator is of AAR origin..
Thus, I believe the nose is an aftermarket nose that was made to help streamline the earlier Eagles...yet I have heard one opinion that it is of Eisert design, when Jerry was still making his own cars.
Any imput would be appreciated!
