No physical Expo this year but still plenty of models to help celebrate our 10 year anniversary.
Holden Torana A9X 1978 Bathurst Forbes / Bartlett
For the 1978 Bathurst 1000, Bob Forbes teamed up with Kevin Bartlett in the number 10 Holden A9X Torana. They were able to position themselves in 12th place on the starting grid for the Great Race with a qualifying lap time of 2:27.3. Holden A9X Toranas took the top two places in Australia’s premier race for “production” saloons. Running strong until trouble struck the Forbes / Bartlett entry was a further 27 laps down from the winner, finishing the race with only 136 of the 163 laps completed and in 22nd place overall. This quality diecast model produced by Classic Carlectables will feature opening parts and exceptional detail. Limited to only 400.
