About This Product:
Authentic Collectables are very excited to present a long awaited model for collectors, the 1:18 Scale Nissan Bluebird Turbo driven by George Fury to claim pole position at the 1984 James Hardie 1000.
A two-time Australian Rally Champion and runner-up in the Australian Touring Car Championship, George Fury was a champion talent behind the wheel and his pole lap at Bathurst in 1984 against a who’s-who of names is a perfect example of his racing pedigree.
The list of drivers and cars that were present in the 1984 Hardie Heroes shootout featured some of the most iconic names ever witnessed across the history of Bathurst. Household names such as Brock, Johnson, Moffat, Richards, Grice, Morris, Masterton, Hansford and Walkinshaw were all present piloting legendary machinery from Holden, Ford, Mazda, BMW and Jaguar trying to record the fastest time around the mountain to claim the honour of starting on pole for Australia’s Great Race.
Despite all their mouth-watering credentials though, none were ultimately able to better Fury’s blistering pole time of 2:13.850, with the cold conditions and his immense talent behind the wheel helping the Turbo Nissan to the top of the timesheets.
It was the first ever Bathurst 1000 pole position by a car fitted with a turbocharger and it was a pole lap time that would not be beaten until 1991. Given it was the last year of Group C regulations, Fury’s time remains the fastest ever at Mt Panorama by a Group C touring car making this a truly unique and historically significant car in Bathurst 1000 history.
Don’t miss this model in 1:18 scale which has been produced by Authentic Collectables as a sealed body with clear windows and detailed interior in an exclusive limited edition of 1500 pieces with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
For Future Release Model Cars:
We have A LOT of future release model cars listed on this website and it's not uncommon for these items to take anywhere between 6-18 months to arrive.
If you're interested in ordering/buying these models then you have two options available to you:
Pre-Order Model Cars At Your Local Stockist:
If a model car is marked as a future release on our website then please enquire about placing a pre-order with your local model car / hobby stockist as soon as possible.
Please note, all stockists are seperate businesses to Authentic Collectables, we are suppliers to them. Each stockist has different ways of how they accept pre-orders for future release models.
To find your local Authentic Collectables stockist, please click here.
Register Your Interest For Model Cars Here On Our Website:
You can also register your interest for future model car releases online with us to be notified when they are released.
To do this you need to navigate to the product page of the specific model you're interested in.
Once you're on the model product page, please click on the black 'Register Your Interest' tab which should appear on the right hand side of your screen on each future release product page on our website, enter your email in the relevant section and submit the form.
When the model arrives in stock you will receive an advanced email notification from us letting you know that it is in stock with a link to complete and pay for your order while stock lasts.
Please ensure your email address is right before submitting the register your interest form. Unfortunately a confirmation email isn't sent when you register your interest for models on our website, the only time the system will email you about that specific model will be when it arrives in stock.
We offer this option due to the amount of time models generally take to produce (usually 6-18 months) so you're not out of pocket until the model actually arrives.
For Future Release Prints, Books + Other Products:
Depending on the type of product or brand, we also offer a paid pre-order option on our website.
If a product is available for paid pre-order on our website then you will be able to add it to your cart and purchase it like any normal in stock item.
Details about the pre-order 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.
For All In Stock Products:
If a product is in stock then it should now be available at your local Authentic Collectables stockist or you can shop online directly with us and it will usually be shipped on the next business day unless otherwise stated or it's a holiday period.
Yes we ship internationally.
Shipping rates are calculated during the checkout process based on what you're ordering and where you're shipping it to. Add the items you want to your cart, and go through the checkout process to view the rates. You can see the shipping rates prior to final payment for the order.

Please be mindful that the vast majority of products available from us are produced in limited edition numbers and will only be available while stocks last which is why it is very important to pre-order at a stockist (or here online where possible - see above) or register your interest for future release models.
