This is a high-quality 1:43rd resin model of Ian 'Pete' Geoghegan's #1 1967 Ford Mustang GTA, winner of three Australian Touring Car Championships.

Exterior finish of this model is excellent, and it has a detailed interior. Very unusual for a 1:43rd model, it has a removable bonnet and an extremely well detailed V8 engine, complete with tiny plug leads. This is a limited edition model (only 500 produced) and comes with a numbered certificate of authenticity. It is mounted on a plastic plinth and protected by a clear acrylic display case.

The model is available online at www.spr-models.co.nz (http://www.spr-models.co.nz)


History of car : Pete Geoghegan's 1967 Mustang GTA started life as a humble V8 automatic road car. Initially powered by a 289 cu. in. V8 with four 48 IDA Webers, the Mustang was later updated to a 302 cu. in. V8 equipped with Lucas fuel injection fitted to a Shelby Cobra manifold.

In 1970 a rule change allowed the car to be fitted with flared wheel arches and 10" wide Minilites. Winning three consecutive Touring Car Championships - 1967, 1968 & 1969 - makes the Pete Geoghegan 1967 Mustang GTA one of the most significant Touring Cars in Australian motor racing history.
