Rally History

This 1968 Ford Falcon XT GT was originally built in Adelaide by Gil Cameron at Road and Track in 1991 for the 1993 London to Sydney Marathon rerun.

It was built as a nod to the Australian Ford Works Rally Cars prepared by Harry Firth with consecutive KAG number plates for the 1968 Marathon.

Since that event it has competed in the 2000 London to Sydney Marathon, 9 Targa Tasmanias, 5 Classic Adelaides and countless other sprint and club events.

It has many class and category wins and an enviable finishing record reflective of the robust nature of this car.
