According to the Detroit News, Jack "The Brighton Bandit" Conely was a self-made, Michigan Hall-of-Fame driver and engineer who passed away in 2017.  His automotive collection is being auctioned off this Saturday in Whitmore Lake, Michigan, and there are several very interesting items.

Article about the estate here:
https://www.detroitnews.com/story/business/autos/2018/09/25/brighton-bandit-leaves-auto-auction-treasure-chest/1418109002/


A 1969 Eagle Mk 5 504 used in Formula 5000, built by Dan Gurney, of course.


An unidentified Indy car with lots of spare rims.


Another Indy car, this is a Lola (see the logo on the nose).


From the Detroit News article: "Jack Conely at the Indy Motor Speedway in one of his two attempts to qualify for the Indy 500 in the early 1960s."

The third image is a Lola T190 usually a F5000 car but it could have been modified to be an Indy car. Large V8 engine next to the rear.

These were posted on an Historic Open Wheel group I'm in on Facebook. Consensus was that the #42 is an Eagle F5000 as you stated, the #48 was a Lola T190 F5000 car and the #89 in the middle is a Rear-Engined Watson Indy Car.
