1977 London-Sydney Rally 280 E's


Does anyone have any pics of the two factory entered 280 E's from this rally?

As a child, at the end of the rally, I was given the German numberplate from one of the cars (reg # SDA-7168....from memory) and want to try to ascertain which car it came off.

I still have it, dirty and original, straight off the car at rally's end.
