This car ran in the '65 Le Mans with the snoop nose. However in its current restored version it has a normal hood and front end. There are some reports i have seen that indicate it raced without the snoop on later occasions. Oddly there is a photo from the 1965 Sebring 12 hour of a car with the normal front but with the licence plate DRX256CCan anybody throw any light on this?

I understand that the MG racing team had one snoop nose made up, which was used on different cars. Evidently DRX255C raced without the nose in later events.
