Mate , I'm having flashbacks Argh too much LSD , What a junker that Brabham was !

Here a sample of GMH Crap from the Sales brochure - Argh Save Me !!!

79 Hp Engine ( That's a 100HP less than you need )
Over-Size Exhaust ( Old water pipe 1.5 Inch )
GT stripe ( Has an Identity crisis thinks it's a Ford ! )
High-Lift camshaft
Wide Tread Tyres ( 6.2" x 12" Cross plys 0n 4 inch rims , Watch out for that Power Pole !! )

No Name means more than Brabham's , And those magic letters , Right on each fender , Mean just what they say , This car is a goer. Now for some reasons why - Brabham's version of Torana's 70.7 Cu in engine puts out 79 Hp at 5,600 RPM . Compression ratio 9.0:1 , 2 Stromberg carburettors , Twin sports air cleaners , Brabham designed inlet manifold , Highlift Camshaft ,Heavy duty inlet & exhaust valves , "Straight thru" resonators and oversize exhaust pipes .

Well that's proof in mid 1968 that LSD was being used freely at GMH in Fishermens Bend by everyone in the place !!!!

Having knocked it to death , When was the last time anyone saw one ?
For me it was 1982 , So the little darlings are probably worth Heaps , BUT WOULD YOU DRIVE ONE ? How embarrassing !

the brougham is a nice car
precursor to the statesman and the deville.
think premier but with a bigger longer boot.
Usually equipped with a 308 and a 2 speed powerglide, lots of fancy internal bits :)
