1978 Mor­ris/Fitz­patrick To­rana

Australian Muscle Car - - Top 25: Bathurst liveries -

When

Ron Hodg­son Rac­ing’s A9X To­rana hatch came on stream, the dealer asked his ad agency to cre­ate a new liv­ery that was dif­fer­ent to ev­ery­thing else on the track and pre­sented well on telly. Hodg­son and Bob Mor­ris were un­der­whelmed by the agency’s con­cepts, so Bob said ‘I’ll have a go,’ and came up with a stun­ning combo of lime green, white and dark blue. He im­mor­talised th­ese colours when he won the 1979 ATCC.
