A unique opportunity to acquire a rare piece of motor sporting history. This ’64 Mustang is not just another old racer but an original Appendix J Historic Race Car which has been campaigned throughout Australia over the past 40 years. Circuits include Bathurst, Philip Island, Sandown, Eastern Creek, Lakeside, Oran Park, Amaroo Park etc.
Also includes a number of historic invitational drives by the likes of 3 times Australian Trans-Am Champion John English and 5 times Australian Touring Car Champion Ian “Pete” Geoghegan. This car is loaded with a mass of race history which has been compiled and recorded by the late John Kingcott.

Sort after by the shrewd investor, these opportunities don’t last long and represents great value at $119,000. Would consider part exchange for a restored pre 1970 Mustang road car.
