OK I've just about finish this thing. It's still missing a proper preview pic, but I can't get the garage track working. After I created the .acc file, I noticed a problem with the back glass (driver's side rear corner.) I tried various fixes for it, but none worked, so I decided it's good enough as is (you can fix it by editing the texture file and making the glass completely clear – but then it looks like it has no glass at all.) The car's physics seem pretty realistic, but it has an annoying tendency to “crow-hop” when cornering; I'd expect this car to corner poorly though. Oh yeah, it likes to spin tires too, but these cars ran on basically “stock” tires, so that may be normal also.
A fun link of the real car (among others) in action in the 1957 Daytona Beach race on youtube:
