Holman & Moody Mustang Commemorates Tour de France

Special Edition

50th Anniversary Holman & Moody Tour de France Mustang commemorates fifty years since the Mustang secured its first European victory.

In September 1964, Great Britain's Alan Mann Racing Team took three Mustangs, specially prepped by American tuning specialist Holman & Moody, to the 4,000-mile long Tour de France rally. Ten days and seventeen stages later, the Mustangs finished the Touring class in first and second place, fending off classy Jaguar Mk IIs to claim Mustang's maiden victory in international competition and giving Ford a European victory to celebrate years before the GT40 would dominate Le Mans.

To mark fifty years since that historic win, Holman & Moody has created a limited edition 50th Anniversary TdF Mustang, blending Ford Racing Performance Parts with its own custom components. Modifications to the Anniversary Mustang mirror those made to the 1964 racecars, including a bright Race Red paintjob, bigger brakes, upgraded radiator, more power, a race-tuned suspension and a free-flowing exhaust. "As a track-day capable commemorative edition, this special Mustang is a rolling showcase for our race-proven parts," said George Goddu, business manager for Ford Racing Performance Parts.

The 5.0-liter V8, exhaust system, mufflers, air filter, radiator and oil cooler have all been upgraded with Ford Racing parts. A fully adjustable suspension allows for a range of motorsports from racing and rallying to autocross and drifting, yet it remains comfortable enough to be used as a daily driver. Gold stripes and badging, 19" alloys and a numbered serial plate identify this as one of the 500 special editions to be built. Optional extras include roller bearing upgrades on the sway bars and custom embroidered Recaro seats. Prices have yet to be announced but orders will be taken early 2013 with production to start in the spring.
