For auction is the latest release from Katcode3. These cars are enhanced to replicate the cars which raced at Bathurst and are each a very limited edition run. This car is #01 of a maximum 10 cars to be produced and as such represents great value to the model car collector.

The base car is a TRAX Hot Mustard Valiant Charger and the finished model depicts the car that Brian Reed and Graham Ritter raced in the 1971 Hardie Ferodo 500 at Mount Panorama, Bathurst. They qualified the car P26 (P12 Class D) on the 60 car grid, near the back of the Class D cars which included the Torana LC GTR-XU1's, a Falcon XY GS500 and an Alfa Giulia. Like the other Chargers, they were hindered at the start by the ratios offered by their 3 speed gearbox and were swamped. When the race settled down Reed had the Charger in P6 in Class D. By the chequered flag though they had faded to complete 118 laps to be classified P25 and 16th in Class D.

This car, #01, offers a unique centrepiece for any collector and is a unique example of the actual race car and the scarceness of donor cars limits the number of these cars that will ultimately be available. In fact no guarantee of any other Katcode3 cars that are ultimately offered is made or implied. At this point to my knowledge Biante, Classic Carlectibles or Auto Art aren't producing this model in this scale, so the purchase of it would be a rare and unique example in your collection by any measure. The car is truly a great looking model and a very important car in any collector's Bathurst collection. Note that overseas buyers should contact me before bidding to ascertain shipping costs. In these cases, I will only accept PayPal. Please add me as a favourite seller as there will be many more releases in 1:43 in the future. It would be a pity to miss out on such rare examples of Bathurst history, including Bathurst winners and older classics, particularly something as rare and spectacular as this example. This is truly a rare opportunity. Also note that multiple purchases will attract a discounted shipping cost, please contact me to ascertain costs. Please check my other cars on offer as there are a number of very rare cars included.

Note these Code 3 cars are made with every intention of supplying a unique model to the Bathurst fan. As Code 3 cars, they are not perfect but meticulous attention to detail is indeed taken. The car comes in it's original packaging and is a very detailed and desireable model by any estimation. Every effort is made to achieve the best result possible however at times some of the details are not absolutely perfect - I implore you to look at the pics before bidding. No refund will be forthcoming for your inability to read the description or look at the pics. If in doubt - please ask! I do this because I love it and respect any and all feedback left. I also wish to ask that you contact me should there be a car you wish to see in future as I do value your opinion.

Starting prices are dictated by the cost of the donor car and the amount of work involved.

Production of this model made possible with photographic assistance from www.autopics.com.au Please click on this link to view hundreds of photographs of Bathurst and other races - there are always seem to be new photos being added.

Note I do not produce 1:18 Scale Code 3 cars however there are a number of quality models using Katcode3 decals available on eBay by member ssautomemorabilia.

I HAVE PRODUCED REPLICAS OF OVER 250 CARS THAT RACED IN OUR GREAT RACE AND MANY OF MY CUSTOMERS CAN TRULY BOAST A COLLECTION OF CARS THAT NO ONE ELSE IN THE WORLD CAN POSSIBLY HAVE. THIS IS YOUR CHANCE TO JOIN THE EVER-GROWING LIST OF COLLECTORS THAT CAN HAVE IN THEIR COLLECTION BATHURST CARS THAT VERY VERY FEW PEOPLE IN THE WORLD HAVE. REMEMBER ONLY 10 OF EACH CAR WILL EVER BE MADE AND GIVEN THE CARS PRODUCED I DOUBT WHETHER ANY WILL INDEED BE MADE BY THE MAJOR MODEL MANUFACTURERS. IN MOST INSTANCES NOT EVEN THESE 10 WILL BE PRODUCED DUE TO THE RARITY OF THE DONOR CARS REQUIRED. DECAL PROOF SHEETS ARE DELETED FROM FILE ONCE TEN CARS ARE MADE SO DON'T ASK FOR MORE - I WON'T BE ABLE TO HELP.

PLEASE NOTE - PAYMENT MUST BE MADE WITHIN 5 DAYS OF THE AUCTION END. IF YOU HAVE ANY PROBLEMS WITH THIS PLEASE CONTACT ME : I AM ONLY TOO HAPPY TO ASSIST WHERE POSSIBLE BUT NO COMMUNICATION AND NO PAYMENT FOR AN EXTENDED TIME IS UNACCEPTABLE AND MAY RESULT IN YOU BEING LEFT NEGATIVE FEEDBACK, THE CAR RE-LISTED AND YOU BEING BANNED FROM BIDDING ON FUTURE AUCTIONS.
