Very much a Ford promo to commemorate their victory, but has some great footage and good reproduction. 21 finishers from 98 entries. It's also fun for capturing the spirit of adventure - the co-ordinated efforts of the works teams with serious objectives, alongside so many individual private entries who just seem to be challenging themselves for the sheer hell of it. So many of these - often obscure - names keep resurfacing from earlier years and reappear in later events in all kinds of different cars. Seems as if 50 years ago everyone was just enthusiastic about participating as much as wanting to be successful, and they all had a jolly good time.

I'm glad you are an expert on this topic, because I am not, although I really enjoy old rally footage.
