And the driver was..............................................
......that section of my hard drive has been corrupted!!
It wasn't Paul Fahey, Rod Coppins, Robbie Francevic?

It was built up by Tony Kriletich and Robbie Francevic around a 1955 Customline shell with a 7-litre 410bhp Galaxie engine and E-type Jaguar brakes and bodywork modified as in the link. After a couple of races sorting it out, Francevic could not be beaten in 1967 saloon racing.
I'm sure I've read recently whether it's back in existence, but can't remember. Perhaps an NZ-based member might...

As I recall, it was used on the road for a while.
I've also heard rumours of a recreation involving Robbie but others may know more.

Our friend Milan was not only close to the action but, as I recall, built a scale model.
The car was a one-season wonder because the Allcomers were banned after the 1966/67 season

So why did Robbie start with a '56 Customline for a 1967 all comers car?
Has the same appearance as this Dale Earnhardt creation that was constructed shortly before his death for a new racing series. Made about 3/4 normal size.

Looks pretty close to the original, colour scheme however is not correct, stripes are the wrong size, and the stripe on the right hand side should be blue, not red. The car eventually went very quickly, and certainly bought back memories of 1967. One local publication ran an article that stated in contained parts of the original car, can anybody confirm if that is correct?
