I recently purchased an original press release
pack from a motoring journalist. included with it were the following
photos. The notes on the photos are included below. one photo had "Polkinghorne
& Stevens Pty. Ltd. 188 George Street, Sydney. N.S.W. 27-5081
- 27-5082" printed on the reverse which I guess were the
reproducers of these. There are 17 large photos and so they might
take a while to download.
Included within the press release is a lot of printed material which
is a bit delicate and I might get it typed to include in the future, A
very interesting covering letter promoting the car very well written by
Peter North is also included - it is a pity more of this letter wasn't
used in 1973 instead of the silly and ineffective promotions of the time
which contributed significantly to the car's downfall. I will publish
this letter soon....
