1969 Boss 302 Mustang Trans-Am
Allan Moffat’s 1969 Ford Trans-Am Mustang is considered one of the greatest muscle cars of all time. The bright-red two-door coupe, imported from the USA, helped Moffat to win 101 races from 151 starts, with a top lap-time of 2 minutes and 22.4 seconds, clocked at Bathurst in 1972.
An icon of Australian motor racing, few brands have contributed to our racing culture the way Ford has. With a breadth and depth that has seen rally championships, sports car victories and touring titles amassed by colourful and characterful drivers, Ford’s motorsport history has created a legion of ardently loyal fans. While the Model T literally shaped our roads, it was the impact of high-performance vehicles, such as the Cortina GT500 – the first Bathurst homologation road car special, and the original Falcon GT, the first V8 to win The Great Race – that helped cultivate Australia’s unique motoring culture.
