Other stuff... including a spare over-the-counter JL8 rear axle, a cowl plenum air cleaner, and several tire & wheel combos.
I wouldn't mind seeing some of this stuff under my tree at Christmas.

Many thanks to Karman Cusack for getting these photos from Jerry Lagod so we could check them out.

Here's a picture of Jerry's car from the 1970 Road America Trans-Am race. He was disqualified from that race due
to a crew member helping him refuel the car on the course, which is against SCCA rules. Only the driver can make
any necessary repairs or add fuel while the car is on the track and away from the pits.

that's  in it's original 'skin' ..  as a '68..  Does anyone know when it was reskinned as a '69?   If someone wanted to 'restore' it to it's former glory as a Trans Am racer, would it necessarily have to go back to the '68 skin?

It was reskinned after the 1970 season. Jerry ran Trans Ams in 1971 and 1972 with the '69 body and Dupli-Color sponsorship.

I really like that car... Smiley          How many races did it run in Trans Am?   How well did he do with the car?  Are the log books available with the car?

What color was it when it was in its original 1968 body?  Was it the original butternet yellow from the factory?  I see it has the dual rally stripes in the picture from 1970.

The car was Butternut yellow when new. It could be run in either body configuration since it ran Trans-Am races with the original '68 skin in 1969 and 1970 and it also ran in Trans-Am in '71 and '72 with the '69 skin on it. Here are 10 Trans-Am races that I know it ran...

1969
Michigan, 16th place

1970
Mid-Ohio, 22nd, DNF
Donnybrooke, 7th
Road America, Disqualified for refuel violation

1971
Mid-Ohio, 11th
Donnybrooke, 17th
Road America, 31st, DNF
Watkins Glen, 19th, DNF (engine)
Michigan, 33rd, DNF (engine)

1972
Road America, 10th

I don't know if Jerry still has the log books.

Rear calipers appear to have been drilled for J56 twin pin vette pads.

No, I haven't heard anything. If somebody knows, please give us an update. It would be nice to see this car go to a good home.
