Australian Muscle Car - - Muscle News -

The

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.
