So which one where you asking about?

I did hear that the sister car was kept in Fremantle Motor Museum but i believe the museum has since closed and it may be in the York museum but have not found any information about which rounds either car raced.

The new car had the Morris colours all removed before it was sold on as there was some dispute over payment with Rob Hogdson and Peter Malloy. I believe the 7 was still on the car though.
Can you get some pictures up of when your mum owned the car? I spoke to the guys when they were restoring it a few years ag and it was pretty much complete.
The car gary drives is the new car. The one in York has been there since 1980

Maybe I should have been more specific. What did she do with it once she bought it. How long did she have it? What makes you think it didn't do Bathurst?
Clearly she eventually sold it.
What other information do you have because in 79 there were only 2 cars, the new one did Bathurst the old one only did practice and it's been in York ever since

Cool old pics.... So is it ASL or ASF finance ?
ASL became ASF half way through 79.
