50 years ago, Sandown race track witnessed the introduction of a special Ford Mustang that would soon become an icon of Australian motorsport. Driven by Allan Moffat, the car saw 101 victories from 151 races, amongst scores of qualifying and lap records.
That car became the legendary 1969 Trans-Am Boss 302 Mustang or as it became colloquially known, the Coca-Cola Mustang.
In 1969, Ford’s racing division Kar Kraft delivered the M-Code 302 Boss Mustang to Ford US to be raced in the US Trans-Am series. However, with some strong persuasion, one of the seven ’69 Trans-Ams built was brought to Australia to be raced in the Touring Car championship by Allan Moffat. The unique combination of a state-of-the-art Mustang and the skill of Moffat propelled the ’69 Trans-Am into the history books.
And today, Tickford announce their celebration of this unique achievement by drawing on their engineering-led vehicle enhancement program and creating the limited edition Tickford Trans-Am Mustang to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the original, in association with Allan.
