Skip Barber raced the car as #56 at Bryar in August '68 with 4-wheel discs but Bridgehampton was earlier in the season by a month and a half and the rear discs were not installed at that time.  The car did not make the race at Bridgehampton but did do some practice laps.  Off the top of my head I am not recalling what may have happened for it to not make the race.

J56 was the heavy duty brake option with rear metallic brake linings for 1967 only.
