Ford XT Falcon GT arrives Freemantle

On This Day 52 Years Ago.

At dawn on Friday, 13 December 1968, the P&O liner S.S. Chusan docked at Freemantle in Western Australia.

Car 29, an XT Falcon GT, registration number ‘KAG003’ – One of three Ford Australia factory works’ entries, prepared by Harry Firth; driven by Bruce Hodgson, and navigator Doug Rutherford, was unloaded before embarking on the final 2,600 mile drive to Sydney.

Where they would finish 6th outright after a gruelling 10,000+ miles of the London to Sydney Marathon.

Thanks the Old School Aussie Fords group on facebook for allowing me to share this post.
