Tyrrell chassis 005 “chisel nose car”— 1973
Photographs of the heavily modified Tyrrell chassis 005, nicknamed the "chisel nose car", are extremely rare as the car was mainly used during practice. It was raced only once, in Canada, where Chris Amon drove the car to 10th place. The Tyrrell 005 featured a wedge shaped nose, a revised rear wing and modified side pods, carrying the water radiators mounted on either side of the cockpit. The oil cooler was mounted at the front. The photographs, all taken in 1973, show the Frenchman François Cevert trying the "chisel nose car" during practice for the Belgian Grand Prix at Zolder, and Jackie Stewart, who did a few laps in the wet during practice for the German Grand Prix at the Nürburgring.
