Update: This car was featured in another advert also.

Round Australia


I'm sure the 1968 London to Sydney Marathon had something to do with this, but there is not much info about this 1968 Round Australia Rally, which was a series of six rallying events held across Australia. Photos from  Chrysler Restorers Club of Australia. These two chaps were looking very cool and confidence, weren't they?
