    ID tags

    I think you will find that when Eric Broadley was hired by Ford He was not involved with Lola during this time. So no Lola involvement in the Ford GT40 project. Even though Lola moved to 826 Yeovil Road and FAV were 827 Yeovil Road. Sure Lola continue to make cars; but no direct competitor to...

    Nose color
