Classic Carlectables are pleased to announce the next Holden EH Ute. This is the second model in this collection and is based on the iconic brand “Golden Fleece”. Golden Fleece was an Australian brand of petroleum products and service stations operated by H.C. Sleigh and Company. A partnership was founded in Melbourne, Australia in 1893 by shipowner and merchant Harold Crofton Sleigh (1867–1933) and manufacturer and shipowner John McIlwraith (1828–1902).
The 1965 Armstrong 500 was the sixth running of the Bathurst 500 touring car race. It was held on 3 October 1965 at the Mount Panorama Circuit just outside Bathurst, New South Wales, Australia. The race was open to Australian assembled or manufactured vehicles and, for the first time, to imported vehicles, of which at least 100 examples and 250 examples respectively had been registered in Australia. Cars competed in four classes based on the purchase price of the vehicle in Australian pounds. Prize money was on offer only for class placings however the Armstrong Trophy was presented to the entrant of the outright winning car, this being the first time in the history of the event that there had been an official award for the outright winner.
The outright winning car was the Ford Cortina Mk.I GT500 entered by Fairfield Motors and driven by Barry Seton and emerging young driver Midge Bosworth.
This high quality model features fully opening parts, faithfully replicated specific car features based on extensive research including an accurately replicated engine bay, interior, wheels and fine paint finishing. Limited to 804.
As we are all well aware, the end of the 2019 Supercar season saw the closing of the V8 Supercar chapter for Garry Rogers Motorsport. Long beloved by fans and considered one of the most entertaining teams in pitlane a shift in sponsors plus the team’s growing involvement in S5000 and TCR saw the Newcastle round as the final race for GRM’s ZB Commodore’s. With this in mind, we, along with the team, have decided that the Newcastle round cars should be produced in model form not the previously announced early season liveries due to their increased significance.
