According to the Ausmini.com GT register, this was the last Australian delivered Clubman GT. The owner of this car has recently been in touch with us and provided some additional images, and some background information on the car. It was also his understanding that this was the last GT sold in Australia.
The car was purchased to race by the Vimy Ridge dealership in South Australia in 1973. It was raced for 1 year and had a couple of class wins - Adelaide 250 (class win), Sandown 250 and Collingrove Hillclimb, all in 1973. The Bold as Brass yellow paint is the original colour. The car came to WA (where it currently resides) around 6 years ago. As far as the current owner is aware, it's the last Group C class racing car left.
We initially added this car to the register after finding an expired advertisement on car-from-uk.com. The current owner is now doing a few things to bring the car back to original spec (correcting a few changes made over time to the dashboard), and also having the interior re-trimmed. We note that the original interior colour was tan, but it has been changed to black at some stage, and the owner will re-trim in black also. Black was also an original colour option on the GT in 1973.
