40th anniversary celebrations of Allan Moffat’s Bathurst 1977 1-2 went to a whole new level when the Ford legend unveiled a special commemorative Tickford Mustang GT paying homage to his and teammate Colin Bond’s famous feat. The Tickford Bathurst ’77 Special will be fitted with a high-performance supercharger, significantly upping the output of the Mustang’s 5.0-litre powerplant. Externally, the white car runs a modern interpretation of the livery, fitted with a full decal kit and replica rear wing. The limited edition model will include a full OEM-spec leather interior with unique Tickford Bathurst ’77 Special treatment, including XC hardtop red and blue stitching on the seats, a bespoke steering wheel plus cabin badging. No more than 77 of the Tickford pony cars will be built, each fitted with a numbered build plate. “This year is a significant anniversary in Australian and Ford motorsport history and while it will be celebrated in many ways, we are privileged to be working with Allan Moffat to create a modern V8 hardtop that pays tribute to his famous winning machine,” said Tickford CEO Tim Edwards.
