It was my understanding that the car was scrapped. However I recently found it on the following website:
conceptcarz.com/vehicle/z15081/Kurtis-Kraft-500C
I'm a new member so I can't post an active link.
I would be interested any pictures related to the car or it's drivers. I have pictures that I would be happy to share.

Thanks
Don
