I was rereading the dec issue of Vintage Motorsport Magazine and read about the loss of braking which led to crashing into the tirewall and guardrail, for which the driver was airlifted to the hospital. (a photographer was also injured & received treatment for a compound fracture)
Driver was released later but was reported as saying "He was glad he was wearing a HANS for the SEVERE impact."

Severe is what I am referring to... 

Does anyone know how badly the car was damaged?

I saw a video of the car hitting the barrier but nothing more than that. It was a serious collision but the car has been repaired and was at Monterey for the Historics last month. The owner, Bill Bryan, told me has was still dealing with some lingering issues from the collision so he had former owner Don Lee drive the car for him at Monterey.
