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.

Great items, Chad. Thanks for posting them. Can you enlighten me about the Monsanto "Durette" uniform vs the "Fypro"? Seems like Fypro quickly replaced the Durette as the top of the line suit.
