McLaren M6GT.  Basically a coupe body on the McLaren M6 Can Am car, meant for endurance racing, it was instead used by Bruce McLaren as a road car for the last six months of his life.  A 1600Lb. car with an Al Bartz tuned Chevrolet 350 "small block" V8, it offered scintillating performance for the day.  It also had headlamps that had to be raised by hand, from outside the car.  Still, by some estimates, McLaren's amazing road car heritage, starts here.

Denny Hulme, M8A Laguna Seca practice 1968. John Cannon won this race, famously held in very wet conditions when so many ‘fell off the Island’. Cannon’s old McLaren M1B Chev won from Hulme and George Eaton’s McLaren M1C Ford (tamsoldracecarsite.net)
