Description

The Armstrong 500 moved to its new home of Bathurst in 1963. Cars were split into classes based on their purchase price, and limited to Australian built or assembled cars. 1963 was the first time car manufacturers produced modified versions of their road cars in an effort to win.

Grid positions for the race were drawn out of a hat, as such practice times were not important. But the unofficial fastest time went to the Holden S4 of Muir/Martin.

Once the cars had settled from their allocated race start positions, the factory Ford Cortinas stormed ahead, with the Holden S4s giving chase. By the end of the race, the winning Cortina of Firth and Jane were a full lap ahead of the second place Holden S4 pairing of Morgan/Sach.

Key Features:

  • Park of the S4 option package was a larger 12gallon fuel tank, a straight swap with the original factory tank
  • S4 included competition drum brake linings, the Repco-PRB brake booster provided the necessary pressure to stop
  • Beautifully badged steering wheel and instrument cluster with every detail framed by a Dartford Grey crash pad
