[Image: 06-53vx4-905d.jpg]
#5 S N Ali/Bharat Bhardwaj, retired. Late 63-early 64 plate, but does not have Sept 63 rear lights or plate hood (so still 1508cc rather than 1592cc)

Great fun watching the footage of these wallowing around in the mud and scrabbling for grip. Seems they actually entered 10, but broke 4 on the recce, so only 6 started. The biggest problem was weak rear suspension, and Tommy Fjastad who had been hired as one of the drivers told them this needed sorting before the start. So they fired him. So he dug out his own VW 1200 from his garage, entered it at last minute and finished 17th, 2 places ahead of the best Comet finisher. Beetle 1 Detroit 0.

1964 Mercedes-Benz 220 SE [W111]
Ford on Safari: East African Safari 1964 - Cortina Conquest (1964)
These are all list as 220SEb, and KHR plates should be end 63 to early 64.

#66 Lucille Cardwell/Jill Lead, KHR 681, finished 4th and won Ladies Cup
[Image: 03-48merc64bwives.jpg] [Image: 03-48merc64e.jpg]

[Image: 03-48merc64bccwives.jpg]

#64 David Lead/Jimmy Cardwell, KHR 680, retired - commentary describes them as husbands of #66 crew - sounds like some interesting conversations over the breakfast cornflakes in those households ...
[Image: 03-48merc64.jpg]

#68 Paulo Coniglio/Peter Huth, finished 7th
[Image: 03-48merc64c68.jpg] [Image: 03-48merc64d68.jpg]

The 4th and final Merc 220 SEb was #67 Edgar Hermann/Gerd Elvers - not shown in this film - he retired here as he did in 7 consecutive EAS until finishing 5th in 1969 in Datsun 1600 SSS and winning in 1970 in another 1600 SSS and in 1971 with a 240Z
2015-02-22 22:23
1963 Ford Zodiac MkIII [213E]

1964 Austin 1100 MkI [ADO16]
Patate (1964)
UK 1100 Mk1 - I think it's Austin (Sept 63 launch) for rear badge and possibly simple dashboard which should have strip speedometer - Morris was difficult-to-describe hooded dial 2015-02-22 19:01
1964 MG Midget MkI
Patate (1964)
Fairly early 64 plate, but I don't see March 64 Mk2 push-button door handles or other bits clearly enough. 2015-02-22 18:44

[Image: 03-37r4b.jpg]
#36 Aziz Yakub/Cheboyo arap Langat, retired. Probably a 64 plate. No 3rd side window - so basic R4 or even R3?? Listed as Renault Roho - quote "In East Africa it became known as the roho - meaning big hearted." - http://www.uniquecarsandparts.com.au/car_info_renault_4.htm . Was roho ever a proper name??

XJ12 alloys - nothing else visible enough to be definite. 2015-02-22 14:40
1979 Daimler Sovereign [Series III]
Die Straßen von Berlin (1995-2000)
Probably Sovereign - no tints, headrests or side chrome - with optional headlamp wash/wipe 2015-02-22 14:38
1973 Ford Escort L MkI
Die Straßen von Berlin (1995-2000)
1973+ grille, probably L. There was local assembly of Escorts in 70s - exact dates and which Marks (1 and/or 2) not yet confirmed - but this one should be OK. 2015-02-22 14:32
1974 Daimler Sovereign [Series II]
Die Straßen von Berlin (1995-2000)
Probably a plain Sovereign - no vinyl roof or tints - with added chrome and newer XJS wheels 2015-02-22 14:27
1971 BMW 2500 [E3]

1975 Peugeot 504 Cabriolet
Der Mann, der keine Autos mochte (1984)
Main has accessory alloys and side strip. Thumb is 75-80 - either 75-77 V6 (only 974 made as Cabrio) or 78-79 2.0 (figures unknown but more than 974). May well be the same car. 2015-02-22 14:05
1976 Peugeot 504 Coupé V6
Chérif (2013-2017)
My winner of The Prettiest Peugeot Ever Made Award, just ahead of the 204 and 404 cabrios. And several zillion lightyears ahead of everything they've done since the 406 Coupe. 2015-02-22 04:43

Maybe even better than an Alpine, as it looks like a badge on the bonnet = Tiger Series 2. And worth a page, even for such a slight glimpse.

1963 Humber Hawk Series III
Maravillas (1981)
Production changeover was July 62. I think I'm going for S3 for pillar trim - compare S2 Link to "www.simoncars.co.uk" with S3 Link to "www.simoncars.co.uk" 2015-02-22 01:25

#15 CW Hutchinson/FJ Hunt, retired. Well photographed incident when waiting in line for start, they ordered meal from posh restaurant as their last proper food for several days. Has KHP 700 plate which should be late 63/early 64.

#49 Nick Nowicki/Paddy Cliff, finished 12th (but winners in 63 and 68, both of which are regarded as toughest EAS years with only 7 finishers each time)

1964 SAAB Sport [96]
Ford on Safari: East African Safari 1964 - Cortina Conquest (1964)
Lots of SAAB footage, focussed on the 2 works cars, both listed as 96 Sport:
- #28 Erik Carlsson/Gunnar Palm, P44308, finished 2nd
- #17 Pat Moss (AKA Mrs Carlsson, and Stirling's sister)/Joy Mayers, P44309, finished 9th and 2nd in Ladies Cup
- plus another local entry private 96, #32 Keith Mayers/FJ Potter, KAY 70, finished 19th. KAY plate was early 50s, so much older than car. I wonder if Keith Mayers had any connection with Pat Moss's co-driver ...

(1)#28 Carlsson/Palm

[Image: 03-27saab96sportcarlssonf.jpg]

Carlsson then gets stuck - /vehicle_401220-SAAB-Sport-96-1964.html - and has to roll his car over to get out of the mud - an incident which is relevant again later. He also drowns the engine in this waterhole, so Younghusband/Hechle in Cortina #4 stop to help and tow him back to life

Then after prize giving etc (he seems to have got a lot of pots for finishing 2nd :think: ), Carlsson re-enacts for the cheering crowds how he rolled the car over to get out of the mud
[Image: 03-27saab96sportcarlssonn.jpg] [Image: 03-27saab96sportcarlssonp.jpg]

1964 Ford Consul Cortina GT MkI
Ford on Safari: East African Safari 1964 - Cortina Conquest (1964)
This is going to be a very big page because Ford entered 6 works Cortina GTs, and the film is all about them.
[Image: 01-19khs599g.jpg]
Plus there are lots of info gaps and wrong info on t'interweb - especially for the 5 cars that didn't win. For example, this photo is very commonly found in books and online
[Image: 1964eas.jpg]
and referred to as the winning team photo. BUT it is a pre-event picture with #3 on the wrong car (KHS 599 as shown, not KHS 600). As the cars have no sponsor stickers and big tyres, I'm fairly sure this was preliminary testing

So this page is now the gospel account (or as close as I can get it) ....

The 6 cars were entered under the banner of EA Hughes - the Ford distributor for Kenya - and were:

- KHS595 #10 Elford/Baillon - finished 10th
- KHS596 #2 Armstrong/Bates - finished 3rd
- KHS597 #7 Taylor/Simonian - retired
- KHS598 #14 Sprinzel/Garnier - retired
- KHS599 #4 Younghusband/Hechle - finished 15th
- KHS600 #3 Hughes/Young - winners

Ford also won the team prize, so there were bucketloads of trophies at the end

If anyone's into models, KHS 600 is the only one that's been done of the six. Autoart did it in 1:18 - beautifully made with lots of opening bits and detail, but several livery errors. Trofeu did it in 1:43 (#2201) and it's one of the best Cortina models I've ever come across - pretty well perfect

Ford on Safari: East African Safari 1964 - Cortina Conquest (1964)
[Image: 02-48cortina12khl487b.jpg]

#12 Cassini/Favelli, private entry, retired. Listed as GT but is ex-works 2 door Super - as chrome trim around side flash and because KHL 487 was Pat Moss/Anne Riley #48 works entry in 63 EAS (below). There is a lot of confusion about that car in 63 because very few photos survive and there have been 2 badly translated 1:43 diecasts, so for the record, 63 EAS Cortina facts are:
1] Consul Cortina GT not launched until Apr 63, so only 1500cc Cortina version available and eligible for the 63 rally was Super
2] Ford entered 2 factory 2-door Supers in team run by EA Hughes, the Ford distributors for Kenya:
- KHL487 #48 Pat Moss/Ann Riley retired
- KHL488 #50 Ann Hall/Lucille Cardwell retired
In addition there were:
- unknown registration #44 Shankland/Townsend, retired - no details to confirm if this was works car or 2/4 door
- KHK871 #45 privately entered 4-door Super 63 Younghusband/Hechle, retired from lead when engine seized, but they were rewarded with a works drive in 64 (Cortina GT KHS 599, #4, finished 15th)
- unknown registration #47 Phillips/Blowers, retired - no details to confirm if this was works car or 2/4 door
3] The 2 models of KHL487 #48 Pat Moss/Ann Riley are:
- Eligor #2011

Incorrect plate position (in 63 it was painted on bonnet), should be white not cream, has incorrect Lotus badges and real car did not have radio aerial (basically Eligor were too lazy and just used their police Cortina).

- DetailCars #374
[Image: dscf4143.jpg]
An absolute dogs dinner - incorrect registration KHL 481 instead of 487 (but it is in right place on bonnet), wrongly presented as Lotus badges and side flash and with 65+ facelift grille and pillar vents, should be RHD, black bonnet paint should cover wings ..... etc etc
