In my quest to grasp Bronco History I am trying to identify some lesser known competitors. Any help would be appreciated.

Are you Shure about the year of this photo?

The mint program for 1975 has 255 as C.R. Hoyland,

Eagle Rock, CCalif: Hohn Gosline, Burbank Calf.

Jeep CJ6 J.E. Hoyland Co.

Looks like your photo is a class 3 Bronco.

Well the name matches the vehicle, I would imagine that someone typed the entry list wrong or they changed vehicles after the program was printed, which is probably more likely. As for the year, it is from the Petersen Museum achrives, so am at their mercy as to the year it is listed. That's great information.

The Mint ran a different numbering system than any other sanctioning body, that makes it easy to spot Mint photos.
