Vauxhall Ventora London to Sydney Marathon 1968 – car 40

The latest 1968 Marathon car to surface is Car#40, entered by the Jim Russell International Driving School with support from Duckhams, driven by David Walker, Doug Morris and Brian Jones. Finished 52nd of the 58 that finished, but nearly didn’t due the injuries suffered to Doug Morris during the event. The car is now “Happily locked up in my garage in Sydney Australia” says Laurie Mason.

We would very much like to see any more photos of the car to help the new owner restore it.

  1. Have you seen Colin Taylor’s video on youtube, bit hard to see details but I believe your car is in at least 2 scenes as well as footage of the other Ventora after it crashed in Yugoslavia.
