Does anyone know which issue of Autosport Doug Nye's interview with Harvey was? It was during Harvey's time with Hesketh, so woiuld be 1974 or 75. There could also have been a follow-up during the Wolf years.

Thanks all.

Not Autosport, nor DCN, however I have reference to April 1976 Road & Track having a profile on Harvey by David Phipps.

Given time I will unearth my Harvey interviews for you.  We published several.  He was a good guy.  I always remember his cat 'GeeCee' - short for 'Grey Cat' - and the Ferrari telephone receptionist's inability to pronounce his surname - so 'Ingegner Pozzolytwyte' quickly gave way to "'Arravee? You wanna speak to 'Arravee?".

 

Pretty much a political animal as well as a good engineer - but I admired him immensely.

Michael, I've sent you a TNF personal message with my email address.

 

Here's something else I've just found in November 1975 R&T with the Lord and J Hunt both Hesketh-mounted.

Some good footage and brief interviews with Harvey Postlethwaite before and during the '78 British GP at Brands with Walter Wolf's team in a Castrol film.

"The Professionals" is one of many brilliant films made by Barrie Hinchliffe/BHP for Castrol/Ford etc., lots of good footage of many other F1 personalities too.
