This was my attempt at front-mounted blowers... Wound up all the air was "stacking" at the back of the carburetor box and burning down the two back cylinders. Later realized the air should either go straight down in the middle, or split the air into two lines, feeding in the center, from both sides... Now I know!
Don Nichols Photography took the shot. I'd say it was taken in 1959, as the headers were shortened after the 1958 Cordova race...
