Tickford Bathurst ’77 Special – Build #1

Tickford is delighted to announce the sale of the first built Tickford Bathurst ’77 Special. This unique and very prized Mustang has been part of a private collection since it was delivered from Tickford in 2017.

The Tickford Bathurst ’77 Special, is a high performance, limited edition Tickford Mustang GT which pays homage to the Ford Falcon XC Hardtops Moffat and team-mate Colin Bond drove to a famous 1-2 in the 1977 Bathurst 1000.

Modelled off the livery of the Ford Falcon XC Hardtops Moffat and team-mate Colin Bond drove to the famous factory 1-2, the Tickford Bathurst ’77 Special features a range of unique components, engineered to provide a special and individual experience.

In true Tickford style the Mustang GT’s 5.0-litre power plant is fitted with a high-performance supercharger, significantly increasing the Ford V8’s power and torque, with the finished vehicle putting out in excess of 727 hp / 542 kw while torque increases to 827 Nm.

Externally, the car reflects the 1977 version of the Falcon with a modern interpretation of the livery. Build #1 is fitted with a full decal kit, including race number no.1, replica rear wing and the Moffat signature numbered build plate along with build number one plaque.

The car can be viewed at the Tickford Race Centre showroom and delivery can be organised for interstate buyers. The price is $170,000 Drive Away.
