Description

1985 was the first Bathurst run under the new Group A regulations. Johnson had already finished 2nd place in the 1985 ATCC, but was struggling with the endurance rounds. For the Bathurst race he partnered with Larry Perkins, who had recently had a dispute with the HDT team. Of the 51 starters there were only 4 Fords, the lowest turnout since 1966.
Johnson had the 6th fastest time in qualifying, and in Hardies Heros he was able to put his Mustang into 3rd for the start of the race.
After a frantic start Johnson found himself in 5th place, but by lap 16 the car was already in trouble, splitting an oil cooler. Eight minutes were lost in the pits and he rejoined the race in 36th position. The 3 other Mustangs in the race all retired shortly after with different issues. Johnson fought the car into 12th position and came into the pits for a driver change, but the stop was too quick and a wheel was not secured properly, so Perkins had to nurse back to the pits, rejoining in 18th. Continuing to fight until the flag fell, the Mustang finished in 7th position.

 

Feautres

The model is accurately detailed, the cowl panel features a finely molded vent, twin antennas, bonnet scoop and kill switch.

Behind the Mustang wheel rims are slotted disc brakes on all four wheels.

The left hand drive Mustang has the interior stripped out with full roll cage. The chassis pressing, switch box and pedals are well presented.

The drivers racing seat features soft padding and racing harness with individual buckles.

The 5.0L V8 breathes from twin snorkels attached to the side walls of the engine bay. Opening the bonnet is aided by a bonnet release button on the chassis.

From below the detail continues with metal springs used on the suspension. The steering wheel is linked to the front wheels for extra realism.

The highly detailed rear chassis features air jacks, fuel tank, suspension setup and differential.

The chassis bears an individually numbered etched metal plate which is the edition number of your model.
