Frank Gard­ner ’67 Ca­maro

Australian Muscle Car - - Mail -

Frank Gard­ner had re­tired from open­wheeler rac­ing by ‘73 but the-then UK-based Aus­tralian none­the­less still made the trip home for that year’s Tas­man Cup – he was also Lola’s de­vel­op­ment driver. Frank’s other gig was fac­tory Ca­maro driver in the British Saloon Car Cham­pi­onship. He had just up­dated to a new Ca­maro ( tted with the 427 en­gine from Jane’s car) and was ap­par­ently gifted the older, ear­lier model, which he brought along for the Tas­man sup­port races. It was com­pet­i­tive down un­der, de­feat­ing Mof­fat’s Mus­tang in their se­cond en­counter at Pukekohe.
