Yep, just some of the different "war paint" it had. I have a few more I'll post along with some other cars.  Bakersfield would be an awesome event!  keep putting the word out about pic's.  I acutally found my car on a film call "Drag racers holiday". It has my 427 '67 comet and the 135 car in the back ground doing a burn out at Indy

The Silver Horse car was a regular 68½ not a 135 serie. It was owned and raced by Rémi Girard. Last time I saw it was half yellow half blue. Rémi sold the car and It had been hit in a cowl side(door post)passenger side I think and was for sale. Car had 12000 miles.

Chris you should try to put the part of the french movie you have of your car on youtube and put a link here. That would be cool to see the car in motion back in those years.

George, The White and Red one # 44 was purchased early this year and is under an extensive restoration by Randy Delisio. The new owner is Tom Eagan who is a forum member and purchased my 68 1/2 Convertable.

David:
That car was for sale here in Indy in the late eighties. At that time a local speed shop owner named Bill Bruce had the car. He also owned the 69 CJ convert that Ed Martin sponsored and Bob Glidden owned seen in one of pictures in this thread. I used to ride my bike over to Ed Martin Ford and watch Glidden practice launch his Super Stockers in the back lot. Fun Times !
