Not mine, just found it on the interwebs. Seems to be from one Jeff Mast.

Don't think so.

Here's what stands out.

Low-ish numberboards, the hood comes to a point (GPs have a flat spot), very low class lights and the horizontal dual headlights.

 :facepalm:

I was assuming it was the front of an engine.  :oops:

Could be the back of a GP30.
