Man, Lotus 19s (and Cooper Monacos) with V-8s stuffed in them were the backbone of North American road racing in the mid-sixties, and made up the bulk of USRRC grids that spawned the Can-Am series. I think by 1963 there were probably more 19's and Monacos running in North America with v-8s than there were with the Coventry Climaxes they were originally designed around.
