Has anyone got any pictures of car 11 at Bathurst in 1974 ? It was the car that rolled and was driven by Denis Geary and Barry Nixon-Smith.

 

Any help, much appreciated.......

Not much to go on, but the remaining blinker is a clear lense- couldn't fathom anyone changing it back to that if it was a '73 car.

The passenger side indicator lens is amber.

Not when you blow the picture up to A4 size it's not. I'm getting old and going blind, but I'm not that bad just yet!

I'm going that it doesn't have the 73? type brackets off the chassis towards the sills.

I'm hearing ya JP, and 100% thought the front blinker lenses were clear too. However, on watching the video on YouTube : GOSS/BARTLETT 1974 Bathurst - Ford Falcon XA GT     There is a period were car 11 is going down Pit Straight around the 1:15 mark on the video that clearly shows it has amber lenses......

Is it a 73 or a 72? An indicator lens is too easy to change.

What about the 73 gearbox cross member,,, but if you changed that you would be adding weight compared to the 69-72 skinny member.

It looks like they could have tipped it over and kept racing.

There you go,,, no 100% here anymore, looks like no 73 under floor to guard supports, and also it was brought to my attention that it is a race cross member.

So your saying this is 28C Brock car ???.

In Al's photo it looks like something is there were the 73 under floor to guard supports are, but its not real clear and I'm going blind, so I could be just seeing things......
