VANGUARD 1/43 FORD CORTINA GT MKII 1967 SAFARI RALLY BENGHT SONDERSTOM & GUNNAR PALM


Ford put a tremendous amount of effort into the 1967 Safari Rally, entering seven cars in total and spending a budget of £50,000 on the event. However the car developed alternator trouble during one of the stages and were unable to use all their lights, causing them to plunge headlong into a huge trench running across the track which finished their rally. The rally was won by the previous years winner Bert Shankland and Chris Rothwell in a Peugeot 404.Shop here
