Ford MkIV Sebring 12 Hours

Headlamp covers are vulnerable to scratches and cracks, so in a long day and night race it’s worth protecting them when not needed. Hence the crewman here taping covers over the lights of this McLaren/Andretti Ford MkIV featured in our story on page 78 before the 1967 Sebring 12 Hours. The US airfield circuit was famously rough and prone to breaking up, with gravel fired back from car wheels like bullets. The covers were peeled off when dusk fell.
