"Pre-Viceroy" -- Vel's Parnelli Jones Racing Team

Added to OnTheDash -- one of my favorites of the "Pre-Viceroys" . . . This one with serial number 222856, and ordered by the Vel's Parnelli Jones Racing to celebrate the Indy Car championship, of 1970 / 1971.

According to the research by Mark Moss, the Autavias sold in the Viceroy promotion started in the 240xxx range; so this batch pre-dates the Viceroy promotion.

Here is Mark's excellent posting on the bacthes of 1163 Autavias --

Have a look here to see more of the Viceroys and Pre-Viceroys --

Definitely one of the more common of the vintage Heuers, but also one of the more interesting models.



: Thanks! That one is only a few #'s off from my dad's.
