Special Edition Ford Mustang Pays Homage To Historic Racing Event

Muscle Car

Limited to only 77 units.

Australia-based tuner Tickford gained a reputation back in the 1980s for its work on the iconic Ford RS200 and Sierra RS500. More recently, it gave the modern Mustang a performance boost that brought the Eco model in-line with the standard GT. Now it’s revealed its latest project: a limited-edition Mustang that pays homage to a historic race event. Limited to 77 units, the Tickford Bathurst ’77 Special celebrates the 40th anniversary of Allan Moffat and Colin Bond’s famous one-two win at Bathurst in 1977 in a Ford Falcon XC.

Using the Mustang GT as a base, the upgrade package includes the same racing livery worn by the Falcon XC used in the 1977 race, a set of distinctive 20-inch wheels and a high-performance supercharger. The custom Mustang’s cabin will also be fitted with a bespoke steering wheel, XC Hardtop red and blue seat stitching, and a full OEM-spec leather interior. Initially, it will be available as a standalone car with all the enhancements, but Tickford is considering offering the upgrade to existing Mustang owners. Final performance specifications have yet to be revealed. Pricing is estimated to be around $120,000 according to CarAdvice.

Former race driver Allan Moffat praised the project for its authenticity. “The team at Tickford have done a very thorough job coming up with a modern interpretation of my 1977 XC Hardtop. While the Falcon has sadly been consigned to the history books, the Mustang was always one of my favorite cars to race and I had considerable success in them. Ford have done a great job with the latest one. The Tickford Bathurst '77 Special looks amazing, produces an unbelievable amount of power and the finish across all areas of the vehicle highlights why the return of Tickford is so important for the Australian automotive industry. These guys know what they are doing and it shows in this special edition.”
