“Arguably one of the most important pieces of Australian motor racing history to go under the hammer in some time, this car is presented in the correct HTD Marlboro livery bearing #76 and running as good as the old days thundering around the tracks,” said Lee Hames, Lloyds Auctions COO.

“Who knows what this car could end up selling for, I wouldn’t be surprised if it sells for $2 million.

“The significance and provenance of this car is paramount to Australian history and is something that is very special and extremely rare. There is no other like this car, it is one of one driven by legendary race car driver John Harvey."
