A PAIR of iconic Australian touring cars are going under the hammer in an online auction.
Ian Geoghegan’s 1967 Ford Mustang and Bob Jane’s 1972 Holden Monaro GTS 350 are among the lots in the Burns & Co Mothers Day Classic Car auction, ending on May 9.
Geoghegan’s Mustang is a three-time Australian Touring Car Championship winner, claiming the ’67 (in its very first race meeting), ’68 and ’69 titles on the bounce – the latter marking the first time the ATCC was awarded over a series of races.
The car continued to race in Sports Sedans through to the mid-1980s before being restored to Improved Production specifications by Ross Donnelley at the end of the decade.
The late Des Wall purchased the car in the new millennium, and the car remained with the Wall family until its sale to its current owners.
The Jane Monaro also made its debut as an Improved Production racer but was soon converted to Sports Sedan trim, and was campaigned by Jane, the late John Harvey and Peter Brock.
The car continued to race in Sports Sedans with Phil Ward and Tino Leo, before Wall purchased the car and performance an extensive restoration to its original Improved Production specifications.
Both cars are currently on display at the National Motor Racing Museum at Mount Panorama, Bathurst, with the auction set to be live streamed through the Burns & Co website.
