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.” – SN
