In 1983 the Mustang took part in three rounds of the ETCC. Firstly, the Silverstone TT driven by Vince Woodman/ Jonathan Buncombe where the car was presented in Equipe Esso colours, followed by Zolder and the Spa 24-hours where the car raced in Belga colours and driven by Belgian Touring Car Champion Jean-Michel Martin, his brother Phillipe and Vince Woodman.
In 1984 the Mustang was sold to Auto-Veri Berlin who entered the car in three races that year; Donington ETCC, Avus DPM and the Spa 24-hours. The car was now finished in Commodore Racing colours and driven by Paul Belmondo, Feitler and Feider.
In 1985 The Mustang was sold to Reinhold Gropper who raced it in the DTM/ DPM in 1985/ 6/ 7 and in 1988 it was raced by Bert Moritz in the Dutch Saloon Car Championship.
Having spent many years out of use, the current owner purchased the Mustang directly from Mr Moritz in 2015 and immediately commissioned a complete and thorough rebuild/ restoration by renowned outfit Simon Hadfield Motorsport in the UK. Much care was taken to preserve the originality of the car, even down to acquiring and restoring the original carburettor, the cost of the rebuild alone has been in excess of £200, 000.
The engine is an unstressed V8 producing peak power around 6, 500 rpm and hence requires significantly less maintenance than many of its counterparts. With the majority of its key components available ‘off the shelf’ we anticipate this Fox Body Mustang not only competitive (as already proven by one of its siblings over the last 2 seasons) but cost-effective to maintain. This historic Mustang is now finished in the iconic Belga livery it featured at the 1983 Spa 24-hours and is in excellent condition throughout.
The car is now ‘on the button’ having been driven for less than an hour since its restoration. Of note, it was invited to the Group A demonstration at the 2017 Goodwood Members Meeting but has not yet been raced since rebuild.
As the only Group A Mustang to have raced in Europe in period and having remained here all its life, it is welcome at retrospective Group A events and presents an especially ideal entry for the Peter Auto Heritage Touring Cup where we expect it to be a front runner.
FIA HTPs are applied for and in process and the car is accompanied by a vast array of parts which include those substituted during rebuild. Additionally there are a vast number of split rim alloys (dismantled), spare set of wets and a small running spares package housed in its own flight case.
One of the most vivid and exciting Group A cars currently on the market, please enquire to arrange inspection of this historically important race car.
