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.
