Little news from Ford Down Under in Australia. I spotted these articles from
Ford tuner Tickford has combined with racing legend Allan Moffat to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the blue oval’s sensational Bathurst 1000 1-2.

Back in 1977 Moffat led Colin Bond across the line at Mount Panorama in Ford Falcon XC hardtops, but with the Falcon now out of production Tickford has turned its tuning skills to the 5.0-litre Mustang GT.

Just 77 examples of the Tickford Bathurst ’77 Special will be built and the retail price (before on-road costs), is expected to be somewhere between $100,000 and $120,000 depending how much the base car costs from a Ford dealer.

If you think that’s a big number check this out; the limited edition will come with a supercharged V8 engine that is expected to punch out significantly more than the 500kW and 739Nm Tickford has admitted its prototypes have produced.
