One of the greatest drivers to never win a championship. Stirling participated in vintage racing in his later years, in fact he even raced a '65 Shelby GT350 detailed in the attached video.
God speed Stirling.

Met him several times at Lime Rock and once at Laguna Seca over the years...always a gentleman signing autographs and taking pictures with fans.

Condolences to a great and classy racer.
"Low she sits on five spoke wheels
Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

Condolences to his friends and family. 

He was a class act. Had the pleasure of sitting across the table from him at a dinner in Monterey, in the '90s.

I believe that is a '66 GT350, I remember when it came up for sale several years ago. Moss was a legend - RIP.

You are correct sfm5, confusing description within the attached video. I did find the Mecum ad for the same car which further details the car and it's history.
