In the production 2 wheel drive class, the largest car was an Olds Toronado, the smallest, a Subaru 360. Neither did too well. A Saab 96 V4 won the class. In ‘69 Lindqvist again won the class in a Saab, but cut about ten hours off his ‘68 time - placing much higher overall (indeed he would’ve been in the top three if had managed the ‘69 time in ‘68).

Motorcycles did the best overall, and surprisingly, modified 4-wheel drive vehicles did horribly, whereas production versions placed high overall.
