Authentic Cooper T62 Tasman Collectibles

With the owner’s permission, Luke kept a few discarded items while restoring T62  VIN # FL-17-62. After Bruce McLaren, this car was driven by Lex Davison and Rocky Tresise, and in the first lap of the March 1st, 1965 Australian Grand Prix, it lost control while passing and went off the track, killing driver Tresise and photographer Robin D’Abrera. These are all genuine items from that historic car, some still showing the actual crash damage from  that tragic day. Luke personally removed and replaced these during restoration, so their authenticity is unquestionable. These extremely rare artifacts physically document the tragic end to this car’s last professional race.
