2nd model : Kyalami 1964 with John Love / Peter De Klerk - Low roof -
In the winter 1963-1964 extensive modifications were carried out on the car. The frontal area was reduced by cutting down the windscreen then the roof was lowered and re-shaped. Aluminium-alloy covers were fitted over the headlamps and Plexiglas covers were also fitted over the spotlights then both the sidelights and indicators were removed. The front and rear wings were re-profiled to accommodate wider wheels and twin vents were also fitted in the rear screen panel

3rd model : 1000 kms Nurburging 1965 with Peter Sutcliffe - Low roof + bump -
Peter Sutcliffe's preparation for the 1965 season consisted in repainting the car in his racing colour of dark Sherwood green and modifying the driver side roof line, due to the lowered roof and his height he was unable to sit in the car with a crash helmet on without the addition of the roof bump.
