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.

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.
