Mark Donohue ahead of Roy Woods. This is early in the race since there is no damage to the front end of Donohue's car.
Parnelli and Mark got in two "on-track altercations" with one another which ultimately put PJ's Mustang out of the race.

Riverside Trans-Am.  Here, the order is reversed.
I don't recall seeing Parnelli's name on the back of the car before. It might have only been that way at Riverside.

Was Riverside early in the year? I ask that because Parnelli's car did not use that flapper fuel filler for long. Most pictures show the big aluminum lid with the knob on it. It also appears to be missing the two chrome marker bezels that they used as fuel tank vents above the stock gas cap location. The white part of the roof is very wide on this car too. Also has a chrome bumper, some were black but I think they put steel ones on the rear to balance out the weight. There is actually a factory light weight steel front bumper for sale on ebay right now.

I see Riverside was the last race, maybe this was the newest fuel filler version.

The Mustangs used several different fuel filler styles during '69 but I think this downward flapper style was just used at Riverside for the last race of the season. Of course, in 1970 the SCCA outlawed these kind of gas fillers so this looks like a one-shot deal in the case of the Mustangs . Notice that Peter Revson's #1 Mustang also has the flapper style fuel filler (in the picture I posted in reply #125).
