Hi, I am new to this forum and hoping to fill in some gaps regarding the rally history of the Ford Cortina Mk1 GT registration number REP 548. In the early 1960's, it was owned and rallied by Mike Bowyer from Welshpool and the history I have so far is as follows:-
1963 RAC Rally was car no. 175 navigated by L. Vaughan. I have no more details of the event.
1964 RAC Rally was car no. 119 navigated by L. Vaughan. I have no more details of the event.
1965 Welsh Rally in January car no. not known navigated by H. Hughes. Went off the road on Epynt.
1965 Tulip Rally was car no. 104 navigated by Barry Whizzo Williams no details but suspect they ran out of time in deep snow.
1965 Kent Rally no. not known navigated by Tony Mason. Car ended up on its roof in mid Wales.
1965 Welsh Rally was car no. 32 navigated by Roger Willis. Car ended up on its roof in Myherin stage.
When I bought the car in 1967, it understandably required another bodyshell. I would appreciate any details regarding the car or crew and especially any period photos as the only one I have is on the 1965 Tulip. Thanks
