It’s been 40 years since the Ford XC Falcon Cobras of Allan Moffat and Colin Bond assaulted The Mountain, and for the 2018 Bathurst 1000 Tickford Racing team drivers Mark Winterbottom and Dean Canto’s FGX Falcon will carry the same colours.
For Bathurst only, the number five Falcon will ditch its typical bright green Bottle-O design in favour of the iconic combined 'Sno White', 'Bold Blue', and 'Olympic Blue' livery as seen on Moffat’s ’78 cars.
Mark Winterbottom last won Bathurst in 2013.
Hopefully it doesn't suffer the same fate as Moffat's '78 car.
At the same time, Tickford has made the white with blue racing stripes design available on its new road-going TSV-535R Mustang.
The TSV-535R isn’t just a sticker package, it takes a standard Mustang GT and adds a carbon-fibre aero kit, unique alloys wheels, Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tyres, Alcantara and nappa leather interior, plus a leather/carbon-fibre steering wheel.
The TSV-535R isn’t just a sticker package, as it adds plenty of kit over the standard Mustang GT.
