    I am new on the forum.  I recently purchased Richard Tipton's 1972 Royale RP-16 Formula Ford from someone who acquired it from his estate.  Sadly, Richard passed away in January, 2011 in Taos, NM.  The roll bar stamp on the car is "008-152," which would normally be the Colorado Region, however it is my understanding that Richard was a member of the New England Region of the SCCA and raced the car in Club Ford in the 1980's and early 1990's in the Northeast and Florida.  I am attempting to restore the car to the original Formula Ford specifications for vintage racing and would appreciate any information that anyone has regarding the history of the car, specifically which RP-16 the car might be.

    Best regards,
