Hopkins destroyed the McLaren in an accident at Edmonton in September of 1973. Hopkins obviously thought "that's enough for me" and appears to have stopped racing.
The car shown was rebuilt on a replacement chassis. The Hopkins car came to Australia in 2016 for the Philip Island historic meeting where guest driver Andy Newell got a little over exuberant during a dice for the lead and backed it in to something rather solid.
The car returned to the US in its damaged state where the right rear suspension, rear bodywork and wing were replaced ... again.
I am trying to track down where and why the two cars are together.
I get back to you .... !
