Inside this month's Unique Cars gearbox...

1. Moffat Mercury


Before Allan Moffat stormed the tourng car scene with his TransAm Mustang, he was earning a quid stateside driving a Mercury against the likes of Parnelli Jones. The Mercury team cars were painted red and silver, but Moffat’s was painted ‘Australian’ green and gold. He competed in 4 races with the Mercury but was outgunned to the title by the Ford Mustang. This 1.18 scale limited-edition model has been signed by Moffat and is beautifully detailed. A must for any collector. $190


2. Hey Charger decal

The multi-density pads are a breeze to fit and come cut to size with factory clips to pop straight on.


5. Stylish wire wheels


Gotta a classic that needs its wire wheels replacing or do you have one that would look the part with wire wheels sprouting from each corner? Get onto the experts at Australian Classic Wire Wheels. As the Australian Distributor of Dunlop classic wire wheels, LA Custom wire wheels and splined alloy wire wheels, they know more about the caper than anyone and you’ll be surprised by the number of makes and models catered for. They also specialise in period correct tyres like the Blockley 185 VR 15 steel belted radial tyre.


6. LED BriteAngle warning triangles


Nothing ruins a day-out more than a break down, or in Rolls-Royce speak, ‘Failure to Proceed’. But if this does happen put your safety first before you start tinkering and swearing at your stranded chariot and plonk one of these LED light BriteAngle triangles at each end of the car to warn other motorists, or to draw attention to yourself so they can laugh! These clever safety triangles have been designed, developed, tested and produced in the UK. They have a viewing distance of 300 metres and only require 4 x AA batteries to operate.
