Limited to 250 copies - this book number 107 of 250
The first Hardie Ferodo 500 was a truly significant event because it was the beginning of the V8 Ford vs Holden rivalry at Bathurst. After Ford's 1967 success with the XR GT on the track and in the showroom Holden threw their hat into the ring with the release of the Monaro range. For the 1968 race Ford's updated XT GT was to do battle against Holden's all-new Chevrolet powered HK 327 GTS Monaro. In Class E Alfa Romeo were hopeful of challenging for outright honours yet even with the more powerful 1779cc engine the GTVs were to struggle against the V8s.
Photographs from many vantage points around The Mountain - in black and white and colour.
