The Truxmore car has been restored (or recreated - not sure which).  It sees the track in vintage racing in Europe.

If anyone is interested, here is a youtube link showing the Truxmore car at the 2012 LeMans Classic.  The video was done by the shop that did the restoration and has some cool old stills of the original car back in '76.
