Bob Jane/George Reynolds Cortina GT 1964 Bathurst 1st Place
1:18 scale. The 1964 Armstrong 500 mile race was open to Australian built production sedans of which 100 examples had been registered. It was the fifth Armstrong 500 and the second to be held at Bathurst although it is commonly referred to as the fifth “Bathurst 500”. The first car to complete the full 130 lap distance race was a factory backed Ford Cortina GT driven by Bob Jane and George Reynolds, the 1964 event being the fourth consecutive Armstrong 500 in which Jane had achieved an unofficial “line honours” victory. Classic Carlectables have produced this amazing piece of history with opening doors and bonnet. The first from their new tooling. Must for any Ford collector.
