Bathurst 1971 Hardie Ferodo 500.
Bill Brown - #63 Ford Falcon GT-HO Phase 3.
Each black and white photo print personally signed by Bill Brown who started from position 5 on the grid.
On lap 43 going through McPhiilamy Park at over 100 mph (161kph) the right front tyre blew sending the Falcon up the earth bank and a barrel roll along the fence 3.5 times coming to rest on its roof.
Fortunately the seat broke on the first roll and Brown was lying flat as the car continued rolling flattening the roof along the way. 2 marshals also had a lucky escape.
Allan Moffat won the 130 lap race in one of the factory Falcon GT-HOs.
These black and white photo prints, 32 x 23 cms, are each personally signed by Bill Brown.
The remaining photos available are part of the Phase Three Posters autographed collection recently acquired by SS Auto Memorabilia.
Will be posted flat in express envelope for $9.50 or pick up available Melbourne eastern suburbs.
