1966 FIA Ford Mustang Race Car
UK saloon car racing in the 1960s was epitomised by the battles between the American V8s and the British Lotus Ford Cortinas, Austin Minis and Hillman Imps. They were driven, in this early period of the BTCC, by Grand Prix stars of the day such as Jim Clark, Jackie Stewart and Sir Stirling Moss, as well as saloon car specialists like Frank Gardener, Brian Muir, Roy Pierpoint, Warwick Banks and John Fitzpatrick. It was an exciting and evocative period of motor sport and the crowds enjoyed the closeness of the racing brought about by the contrasting abilities of the nimble Cortinas and Minis and the straight line speed of the V8s.
Presented here is a 1966 Ford Mustang Fastback 'Shelby Replica' that has been purpose built to Appendix K FIA specification for Period F - 1962 to 1965. Purchased by our vendor as a road car in 2014, all the rot was cut out and the bodyshell sorted ready to accept a Custom Cages roll-cage that was welded into place, before a bare-metal respray in Wimbledon White with the customary blue stripe.
This car is fitted with a 289ci 4.8-litre V8 engine with new cylinder heads from Modus Engine Services, mated to a 4-speed manual 'Top loader' with a Hurst shifter. The interior houses two new Cobra Monaco buckets seats, Sparco 5-point harnesses and a mandatory plumbed in fire extinguisher. Potential buyers should satisfy themselves as to the legality and currency of all the safety equipment in this car. The car was finished and race prepared by well-known specialist Steve Curl, and now looks stunning. Having not completed a race as yet, this car has it all to prove and comes supplied with a UK V5c and current FIA HTP papers valid until 2026.
This iconic car is eligible for many historic championship events such as the FIA Pre-66 GT Championship, Masters Series or the fantastic Spa 6 Hours. The fact that it's road registered opens up the possibility of using this dramatic car for tours and road rallies, hence the passenger seat. It's a professionally built, full-race, FIA Mustang in the right colour scheme at a very sensible guide. An opportunity not to be missed.
