1954 Anglo-American Rally - color pix?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any color photos of the cars that participated in this event?  In addition to the event itself, there was a parade in Washington DC before the team left, and it was attended by VP Richard Nixon.  There are numerous newspaper photos of Nixon in Paul Tusek's 1906 Stanley Model H5.  Recent research has revealed that this car was painted bright yellow, with brown trim.  This was probably James Melton's choice, from whom Tusek purchased the car.  It would be very cool to see any photo of this car during the time of the race, or any other time in the '50s, because the yellow would really be an astonishing look for one of these cars.

This is what the photos look like after being colorized on the internet.
