The car was finished but still did not have an engine fitted when it was sold to Bob Johns in 1971.

Johns also did not use it, and sold it to his brother Rod Johns in 1972.

It was then sold to David Booth and fitted with a 1300cc Toyota Corolla engine for Australian F3 in 1974.

It changed hands a few more times ending with John Allison in 1984.

Allison crashed the car at Amaroo Park and unfortunately died as a result of his injuries.

The car then was purchased by Laurie Knight (Wagga, Australia) in 1990, and he and Gary Neilsen (Victoria) rebuilt the car to its original Palliser specifications.

Sold to Chad Wheeler (Ipswich, Queensland) 2000, and raced in Australian historics from 2003 to 2006.
