Who is this driver, depicted on the cover of a mid-1960s AYK Aoyagi catalog?

 

Is it an actor? Or a real driver?

Thanks!

Looks an awful lot like Nick Reynolds.

I agree with Pete, race car driver and Kingston Trio member Nick Reynolds.

Wow, that does look like him!
 
And he is about the right age, unlike Peter Revson, who was too young in '65.
 
Here is Nick Reynolds in a helmet, looks similar! - An Evening With The Kingston Trio
 
Thanks!
