Photos of Touring Car Transporters 1970's Vintage

I chasing photos of old transporters(trucks) from the 60's and 70's. In particular I chasing photos of the HT Holden van HDT used to tow the LC-LJ Torana's with or the Dodge truck Bryan Thomson used to haul his LJ Torana arround with. I am also looking for photos of of any Holden 1 Tonne utes hauling touring cars in the 70's.

Looked at that thread. Mainly 90's to current transporters.

I think Team Brock had a one-tonner in '76. I'll see if I can find any pics of it. Re the HDT HT have you tried Ian Tate? He was HDT's head mechanic at that time and still runs a workshop in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne - Tate Engines, Nunawading.

There's a pic in this article of the Gown-Hindhaugh one-tonner from '75 when Brock drove with/for them.

Suggest you go into "autopics.com.au" and search "transporters"

In addition you can search the guys you are interested in.

Talking early transporters does anyone have any pics of the Leeton Motors Bedford bus conversion with the clam shell doors on the back?
As far as I know it was probably the first "purpose converted" race transporter but I'm willing to be corrected.

Here's a couple of Brock's EJ van competing (during the A30 period). I presume it was also his towcar at the time. Both shots are out of books on Brock. Also a photo from '76 when he was given a one-tonner by Watsons Holden (Greensborough, Vic). PM also sent

The pic of the Repco-Brabham HR tow vehicle on this page is a cracker...

Do the Bowden's still own the old Moffat Coke ACCO schitter?

This is a Kiwi site but there are a few Aussie transporters/tow cars on this thread, particularly on the early pages..
