You're correct.  I knew it was a school!  Do you know if anyone ran a top link?

     I guess I'm not sure what that is.

Anybody have the pic of Donohue sitting in a Javelin, can't remember which year, but there's a red Koni or something in the pic behind him,  mounted just above the driveshaft tunnel.   Ken

     I think I recall seeing a photo like that at one time but I don't have the image saved or anything.

The 70 Bud Moore car #775 had a three link set up but Parnelli set faster times in the normal suspension car so it was removed. You can see what remains of the brackets and the three link that they all had. This car had a very high rear deck area in front of the rear window inside the car and the rear shocks were outboard of the frame rails too. You can also see part of the over ride traction bars where they pass through the floor.

     Thanks for posting these! Is that #775 or #776?

Thanks. #775 has not been found to my understanding. Is that correct?

Correct. Might be a chicken coop in Mexico as far as anyone knows.

Top link is a center mounted traction bar a' la a three link.  Solid or spring loaded.  Sounds like 1109's description of a Donohue photo answered my question.
