SR6 - the old days

This has to be one of the oldest photos of the SR6 around, not counting the Bolwell archive photos taken at the factory when the car was being built. I say this because it still has the single roll over hoop behind the driver's seat. It does, however, have a rather unusual frontal treatment incorporating the front flares. Does anybody have any older shots or racing photos?
It's not as old as this familiar shot of the car chasing down the more powerful Elfin at Warwick Farm in September 1970 in Alan Newton's only venture outside Victoria in the time that he raced it between 1969 and 1974 when it was taken over by John White.Apart from the Warwick Farm sojourn, Alan ran the car regularly at Phillip Island, Calder, Lakeland, Sandown, Morwell and Winton.
