This is the last 1080 in 1962 most likely....painted maroon.

Bob Gerhart is in the car.

From my memory...Tom(?) Brubaker(?) ran this car mostly.

Anyone else fill in the blanks?

That's a "new" one for me too.

Do you have any photos of the "1080 Jr." ? I saw it, together with the 1080, a few times at Reading in the late '50s, but I forget who drove it.
