Thanks to Paul Wheeler on facebook for the composite photo.
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.

The MGB which was found in a scrapyard in 2015 has been restored back to original condition by the MGB Register of the MG Car Club. more info at http://www.mgb-register.org/unveiling-the-marathon-mgb-25-…/
