Happy as Larry

Holden VR Commodore 1995 Bathurst Winner – 25th Anniversar­y in Silver Livery

-

No one was as happy as Larry Perkins at the end of the 1995 Bathurst 1000 – apart from his race-winning co-driver Russell Ingall, of course… This model’s an absolute must for Larry Perkins and Russell Ingall fans. With Larry getting tangled up on lap one with some upstart flash-in-the-pan called Lowndes, the Castrol car got a flat tyre and needed to pit. The stop (and the slow lap into the pits) put them a lap down. That Perkins and Ingall fought back to win is one of the great stories in Bathurst 1000 history. The silver livery celebrates that it’s been (just over) 25 years since this feat. The interior features the dash with digital display, bias levers, gearstick and Momo race steering wheel. There’s also a comprehens­ive roll cage and Larry’s signature switch panel to the left of the driver. The superb engine detail shows all the pulleys, fuel rails, rockers, fittings, and accurately decorated parts. The highly detailed boot features the twin fuel pipes, petrol pot, oil catch can, fuel pumps and the complicate­d plumbing. The chassis features an etched metal Limited Edition production number. Just over 1000 of these models will be made. Check them out at www.classiccar­lectables.com.au
