Upon receiving the keys to his newfound treasure, Phill said. “A massive thank you to the team at Mighty Car Mods for their amazing work bringing this Ute back to life. Thank you to the team at Subaru Australia for all your work behind the scenes. And thank you to the Australian Road Safety Foundation for making this possible.

“I cannot wait to add my chapters to the story of this iconic Ute. I look forward to all the adventures I’ll be having in it in the future.”

1992 Brumby raises over $300,000 for ARSF

In an extraordinary display of generosity, this raffle alone raised a massive $312,500 for the ARSF, contributing to the grand total of over one million dollars Subaru Australia has helped raise for the ARSF since the partnership began in 2020, enabling the non-profit to continue delivering vital road safety education initiatives within the community.

General Manager at Subaru Australia, Scott Lawrence, commented: “Firstly, congratulations to Phill for becoming the new owner of the iconic Brumby! We wish you countless happy adventures with your new Subaru in the years ahead.

“Beyond offering the chance to win a restored Brumby, this raffle served a very important purpose, helping raise more necessary funds for the ARSF to continue delivering their ongoing road safety mission – a cause very close to the heart of Subaru. Thank you to everyone who purchased a ticket and contributed to supporting this cause.”

Subaru Australia’s enduring support of the ARSF underscores its steadfast commitment to road safety. Aligning closely with Subaru Corporation’s Towards Zero Safety Vision. Aimed at eliminating fatal road accidents in a Subaru vehicle by the year 2030*.

Trent Whitechurch, Subaru Australia National Marketing Manager, added.  “What started as a small idea has evolved to helping raise over one million dollars in a short period of time. Helping to drive awareness of road safety and the role that Subaru plays not just in the vehicles we sell, but the behaviours we encourage. Congratulations to Phill. This serves as a fitting tribute to our 50-year legacy in Australia. As we welcome another passionate owner to the Subaru family.”
