3D Scanned, hand painted replica
Officially licensed by Formula Johnson
Includes an individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity signed by Dick Johnson
About This Product:
To celebrate the 40th Anniversary of one of the most infamous moments in Bathurst 1000 history and the birth of Dick Johnson Racing, Authentic Collectables are excited to be producing a limited edition replica of ‘The Rock’.
Made famous when the real version rolled onto the track at Mount Panorama while Dick Johnson was leading the 1980 Bathurst 1000 to cause a massive accident and write-off his Tru-Blu XD Falcon, ‘The Rock’ is now a piece of Australian motorsport folklore.
Using 3D scanning techniques, this 1:2 scale (half scale) replica is hand painted and weighs around 3 kilograms. It will be presented mounted on a stylised base in box style packaging in an exclusive numbered limited edition with a signed Certificate of Authenticity by Dick Johnson.
It’s a unique collectable for fans of Dick Johnson Racing and Bathurst 1000 history in general. It shouldn’t be missed.

Being produced in diecast with opening parts.
The 1973 Bathurst race would test the 17 Toranas facing the starter. The new distance of 1000 km (630 miles not 500 miles) placed extra stress on cars, and regulations now put cars like the Torana in the same class as Falcons and Chargers. Most of the private team Toranas couldn’t keep up with the Falcon’s pace and mechanical failure thinned the field by mid-race.
But the Holden Dealer Team Torana’s used a taller 2.78 to 1 final drive. They could challenge the Falcon of Allan Moffat and did so aggressively. But a pit stop drama meant Peter Brock, sharing with Doug Chivas, placed 2nd.
