Anyone know how much and when racer one is out? I have recollection of sep and around 500 euro?

No idea when it's out, but try around 600 - 650 euro, that's around the $875 mark at the moment.

Does anybody recognise where this is?

 

I'm guessing Surfers in 1969.

There's another pic with the 58 on it, but the sponsorship is slightly different,

so i'm guessing maybe a different place again.

 

The next pic states it's at Sandown and it's first race

It is simple really even in racing trim the holdens were in no danger of breaking the speed limit so could be driven to and from the track :D :D Many years ago I used to work for a guy who was a privateer in a phase three and he use to drive it on the street rather interesting from all accounts but this is a great topic to see how race car transport has evolved over the years and some of the beautiful transporters of the 50's and 60's are works of art in themselves

I remember back in the early days of Oran Park there was an EH race driver who used to always drive his car to & from the track. The car was a light brown colour. He consistently ran well in his class.

 

I can't for the life of me remember his name.


I used to be surprised that I was still surprised by my own stupidity, finding it strangely refreshing.

Well I don't now.

I'm over it!

 

Photos of my track in progress.

The bonnet is a clue. From 1970 onwards, the Mustang had a bonnet scoop.

here's a quote from Bob Williamson re the top pic

I'm sure its Calder before they made the banked oval track .. Moffat told me that Qland Coca Cola would not pay him,so when he went to Qland he stuck Wilkinson Swords decal over the CC ones..Bob

I think the story has become mixed-up. The original deal with Coke was negotiated with each separate state Coca-Cola bottler. When he first ran the Mustang, he had problems with some states. IIRC there are pictures of the Mustang at Bathurst in '70 with Stirling shirts over the Coke decals.

That b&w pic posted by Gazza is almost certainly Surfers last corner.
