Australian Muscle Car - - Mini Muscle -

1982

was al­most a great year for Peter Brock. Af­ter all, he (and Larry Perkins) won Bathurst, won Sandown and scored more points than arch-rival Dick John­son in the ATCC. Un­til he agreed that the cylin­der heads he’d used might not have been ex­actly the right ones. In the end, Brock was ex­cluded from all but two rounds of the cham­pi­onship and the record books show he won only one ATCC race all year, round three, at Sym­mons Plains. And this is the 1:18 model shown here. As you’d ex­pect, there’s ob­vi­ously been a lot of re­search gone into the model and you can get the miss­ing cig­a­rette name stick­ers on-line. De­tails on the car in­clude the hinged fuel filler cover, a soft rub­ber seal around the air in­take and the rear wheel air scoops. Visit www.clas­s­ic­car­lecta­bles.com.au
