About This Product:

Covering four decades, this official book captures the amazing history of Dick Johnson Racing and DJR Team Penske via the racing achievements of its individual race cars.

With nearly 50 cars profiled, the book follows on from the sold-out publication by the same production house documenting the history of every Holden Racing Team race car.

This book will feature all of the iconic Johnson team cars, starting with the Tru-Blu Ford Falcon XD that Johnson drove at Bathurst in 1980, infamously colliding with a rock that had spilled out onto the circuit.

It features the famous Greens-Tuf Falcons and Mustangs, turbocharged Shell Sierras and Falcons as well as the current-day Shell V-Power Ford Mustang Supercars run by DJR Team Penske - and every car in between!

The team’s Bathurst and Championship-winning cars are included, each car’s racing history presented in a stunning layout along with a special focus placed on each car’s performances at ‘The Great Race’ at Bathurst.

A wide range of never-before-published photos will feature in this book packed with rare content. 

This hardcover book will be produced in an exclusive limited edition print run and each copy will come with an individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity signed by Dick Johnson making it not only an official historic resource but a truly special collectable item.

Australian-made and printed in Australia via green printing methods, this book is a must-have for the collection of any Dick Johnson, DJR/DJRTP, Ford, Bathurst, motorsport, motoring or automotive enthusiast.

Currently scheduled to arrive in January 2020 (to ensure the full 2019 season and its cars are included), this book can’t be missed.

Pre-order your copy now to ensure you receive this piece of motorsport history!

Model Car Releases:

Pre-Order Model Cars At Your Stockist:

If a model car is marked as a future release then please place a pre-order with your local model car / hobby stockist as soon as possible. To find your local Authentic Collectables stockists, please use the link in the main menu.

Reserve Model Cars Online With Us:

Alternatively, you can also reserve future model car releases online with us. Please click on the black 'Reserve This Product' tab which should appear on the right hand side of your screen and enter your email address. You will then receive an email from us when the product arrives and it will be reserved for 48 hours for you to purchase on a 'first in, best dressed' basis while stock is available.

We offer this free reservation option due to the amount of time models (usually 6-12 months) generally take to produce so you don’t have to pay us until the model arrives.

Books, Prints + Other Product Releases:

Depending on the type of product or brand, we do offer a paid pre-order option on our website and details about this will be listed at the top of the product description if it’s available and when we expect it to arrive in our warehouse. A paid pre-order option will only ever be available on our website for products that aren’t models - we usually use this feature for prints, books and other non-model products.

We offer the paid pre-order option online with us for these products because we can predict production and shipping times more accurately and are usually much faster than the model cars to produce.

Of course, if you wish to order these items from your local stockist, please make an enquiry with them.
