Unearthed: Sandown 1969 Video Featuring Allan Moffat's Mustang
A big thanks to Australian Muscle Car magazine reader Kane Docker for
supplying this fabulous vision from Sandown's February, 1969 meeting. Kane
explains: "I have recently come across some footage recorded onto 8mm
Kodachrome 2 film stock. I purchased them from a deceased estate garage
