Pete Geoghan’s 1967 Ford Mustang Race Car
This classic and heavily modified 1967 Ford Mustang race car instead of being put in the museum, he is doing his job for what he was built for. This Mustang now is owned by David Wall, but originally was built for the famous Australian race driver Pete Geoghan, which he won the Australian Touring Car Championship with this Mustang in 1967, ‘68 and ‘69.
This ’67 Mustang is certified ATCC race car, which is the same Mustang, which the Americans have used in their Trans-Am series. Also, all these years, this Mustang has been kept in his original condition, although there are some minor changes like the new modern sports Sparco racing seat and safety harness.
This 1967 Ford Mustang is powered by a Racing Ford’s 302 cubic-inch wet-sump small-block V8 engine. This engine can rev up to 8000rpm, but has been limited to a 7000rpm. It is using the Lucas Fuel Injection system on a specially designed Globe Shelby Cobra intake manifold. With this configuration, this engine can generate over 500 horsepower. The engine is bolted to a 4-speed transmission with close-ratio Top Loader and Hurst shifter on top. Also the 15-inch racing Minilite magnesium alloy wheels are equipped with Goodyear racing tires.
