History
One of two cars used by Paul Morris to win the 1995 Australian Super Touring Championship

In 1996 the car was acquired by Cliff Archer for use by Steve Petty in the North American Super Touring Championship, replacing the car Petty had rented for the opening rounds. The car was collected from Chicago airport on the Thursday evening prior to the Toronto round meaning that it only just arrived in time for qualifying. Petty would go on to win the Independents' Challenge.'

In 1997 the car was again tun in the North American Super Touring Championship, this time by TC Kline Racing for a number of drivers.

Retained by TC Kline, although unused until 2016 when the car was given a bare-shell rebuild, returned to Australia 'Diet Coke' livery, and run at that year's Monterey Historic Festival
