Motor (Australia) - - THE NEWS -

TO CEL­E­BRATE 40 years since Al­lan Mof­fat led a his­toric 1-2 Ford vic­tory at Bathurst, Tickford is pro­duc­ing a limited edi­tion Mus­tang painted in a liv­ery com­mem­o­rat­ing those dom­i­nant XC Fal­con Hard­tops.

No more than 77 Tickford Bathurst ’77 Spe­cials will be built, each in­di­vid­u­ally num­bered and pow­ered by a 542kW/827Nm su­per­charged ver­sion of the Mus­tang’s 5.0-litre V8.

In ad­di­tion to the per­for­mance up­grades, each ’77 Spe­cial will ride on gold 20-inch wheels to match the orig­i­nal XC race­car and will wear the full de­cal kit and replica rear wing.

The leather in­te­rior will fea­ture red and blue stitch­ing and a be­spoke steer­ing wheel with the pro­gram fully en­dorsed by Mof­fat him­self.

“The Mus­tang was al­ways one of my favourite cars to race,” the rac­ing le­gend said. “Tickford has done a very thor­ough job with a mod­ern in­ter­pre­ta­tion of my Hard­top.”

Tickford’s Bathurst ’77 Spe­cial will pack power the old XC could only dream of
