Lister cars on east coast 1962-63

Anyone help identify these two racers from Vineland, NJ Speedway photo? . . . Langsford collection, taken 1962 and '63.
IMG 2986 Sept.9, 1962 regional... Lowther on pole, yellow; subject car red #6; Ol Yellar VII outside
no #6 listed on my entries this date; no known red knobbly in the NE in 1962
Could be Lister-Corvette or Jaguar, late-enter, out of region driver.


IMG 3016 Nov.3, 1963 regional ... subject car is outside front row, white #xx (76?)
What were three Listers and the Holbert King Cobra Cooper-Ford doing in small SJ regional at season's close?

White livery looks like Cunningham BHL-102 L-Jag; . . . Don Adams ran this car in 1962 but not 1963.
Another name associated with BHL-102 is Ali Lugo from CT.
Is this the same car with new owner?

1 July update.....
RSK100: thanks for your reply. Lowther might have been entered in the RA500 Sept.9,1962 but he raced on the east coast, at Vineland NJ this date.
That is actually one of my research goals; dating the end of the front-engine modified sports racers.
But, I am looking to identify the red #6 car in this photo. gc 7/1/19



Thank you for your insight.

Thank you for your help with the red car ID. It just might be Hal Keck, if I can find proof that the knobbly was red before 1963.
Keck drove the ex-Jim Hall 1958 BHL-108. Working that theory, where did it go from 1960-62? Did that owner paint it red?

My photos of Keck late 1962 are b/w, and appear "dark". The lower photo from Nov.1963 shows Keck's #8 in medium steel blue.

Most big SCCA cars had changed to small single screens by this point. 1962 was near expiration date, five seasons raced. Note that the red #6 still has the full-width flat screen. This detail and the small rollover hoop may help identify my red subject car.


Again, thank you!
