The 33rd Monte Carlo Rally of 1964 saw cars
starting from the following cities: Oslo, Warsaw, Minsk, Glasgow,
Frankfurt, Paris, Lisbon, Athens and Monte Carlo.
Ford's Works Rally
team conisted of Ford Falcons for the 1964 rally,
which were driven by pretty much the same drivers
that drove the Works Anglia's in the 1960 Monte
Carlo Rally. A lot of the other drivers that had
used Ford Anglia's in the past were now moving
over to the new Ford Cortina's, leaving only two
privateers to uphold the Anglia name. The first
Ford Anglia was driven by Michael Merrick, who
campaigned an Allardette, with a second Ford
Anglia being driven by Frank Marchant.
Unfortunately both Anglia's failed to finish the
the 299 competitors that started out for Monte
Carlo, 273 actually reached the town of Reims,
many of which had no or very few penalties. The
journey from Reims to the end of the rally
though, eliminated just over 100 competitors,
leaving 163 to actually reach the finishing line.
Rally was ultimately won by Paddy Hopkirk / Henry
Liddon in a Mini Cooper S (Car No 37)
The Coupe des Dames (Ladies Cup) was won by Pat
Moss-Carlsson / Ursula Wirth in a Saab 96 (Car No
56) who finished 5th overall in the Rally.
