The Armstrong 500 moved to its now home of Bathurst in 1963. Cars were split into classes based on their purchase price, and limited to Australian built or assembled cars. 1963 was the first time car manufacturers produced modified versions of their road cars, in an effort to win.
Grid positions for the race were drawn out of a hat, as such practice times were not important. But the unofficial fastest time went to the Holden S4 of Muir/Martin. Once the cars had settled from their allocated race start positions the factory Ford Cortinas stormed ahead, with the Holden S4s giving chase. By the end of the race the winning Cortina of Firth and Jane was a full lap ahead of the second placing Holden S4 pair of Fred Morgan and Ralph Sach.
