Tickford Trans-Am

Pack Fits: Mustang GT (Man/Auto)  |  Year: 2018+  |  Colour: Race Red

For many motorsport fans, the 1969 BOSS 302 Trans-Am needs little introduction, it stands out as one of the most iconic racing cars in Australia’s history.
Introduced to Australian shores from the US, where it had been created in Ford’s racing division Kar Kraft to topple Chevrolet in the battle of the Trans-Am’s, it immediately had an impact as an incredible sports car, driven by the quick Canadian, Allan Moffat.
From 1969 – 1974, Moffat and his imposing Coca-Cola livery Mustang amassed 101 wins from 151 starts and dominated the sport, often against competition running 6- and 7-litre engines.
The name Trans-Am came from the Sports Car Club of America, who saw the potential of the ‘pony car’ and its competitors and created a unique racing series to accommodate these beasts – which was called the Trans-American Sedan Championship, or ‘Trans-Am’ for short.
And it is from these foundations that Tickford, working alongside Allan Moffat, created the Tickford Trans-Am, a modern interpretation of the BOSS 302 version some 50 years after its introduction to Australia but drawing on the highly successful 2019/20 Ford Mustang in its 5.0 litre, V8 format.

The Tickford Trans-Am

Engineered by Tickford Automotive, in association with Tickford Racing and drawing on Allan’s guidance, the Tickford Trans-Am was created to provide both motorsport and automotive enthusiast with the opportunity to own a piece of history recreated for the modern era.
Available in two variations, entitled Performance Edition and Performance Plus Edition, the Tickford Trans-Am requires the customer to secure, purchase and register a Race Red Mustang GT (auto or manual) and arrange delivery to Tickford’s Epping, Victoria workshop where a dedicated team will convert the standard Mustang into the Trans-Am seen on these pages.
No more than 100 will be built, with customers able to secure a build plate of their choosing between 2-99 on a first-come, first-served basis which will feature both in the engine bay and inside the car.
Both exterior and interior is modified, the exterior featuring a replica of the 1969 livery complete with rear wing and a Tickford-engineered grille and light assembly to replicate the prominent nose of the ’69 model. Under the bonnet, Tickford’s unique 400kw power pack sees an increase to 536hp and torque to 620Nm installed on all manual vehicles, together with a Tickford Racing engineered engine strut brace dominating the engine bay.
In order to further create differentiation, unique 8-spoke minilite wheels have been created specifically for the Tickford Trans-Am Mustang, bringing the 10” ’69 spec wheels into the modern era with 20” replicas running on Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tyres.
