I know that he raced alot of cars over the years, but I can't find anything about him racing a Group 5 Zakspeed Ford.  Phantom car ? More than likely yes.

I agree...either way it's a very good looking car!  JPS livery turns any car pretty!

I can't see the helmet very well to identify it as Andretti's silver helmet.Could this livery possibly represent Robert Lappalainen who also drove in the Trans Am series with that JPS sponsorship?

Zackspeed Mk 3 Capris never has JPS livery.

 

Nice thought though, it looks good.

Lappalainen never drove in the group 5 and Capri to my knowelage.
