Hurst-Airheart patch.  I know these brake calipers weren't legal in SCCA Trans-Am competition until 1970, but some first-gen Camaros started running them once they were allowed.

Chad, the Mark Donohue Performance Products items are neat. Do you happen to have a catalog and know what sort of things were offered?

Hello Jon. 

On the Mark Donohue Performance Products items, yes, they came along with something between a pamphlet and a catalog.  There were also Racemark and Fypro items noted and offered.  I just haven't been able to find the literature yet.

Our 67 camaro was assigned that # 16 for the 69 Sebring race.  Turned out to be a good number as we finished 25th o/a and 3rd in the 2-5 litre touring class.

Jon, I finally found the Mark Donohue Performance Products catalog/pamphlet tonight.  

The literature that had the Mark Donohue Performance Products sticker, patch and fire suit tag is titled "Monsanto and Donohue, A New Team"

Cover and Page 1 included in this post.  Note the checkered "d" patch on the fire suit Mark Donohue is wearing on the cover.  It's very similar to the patch I posted yesterday.

Note the checkered "d" patch on the fire suit Mark Donohue is wearing in this picture taken in the paddock of the 1971 Sebring Continental race (Formula A/Formula 5000).  It's the same, or very similar to the patch I posted yesterday.
