Awarded five Purple Hearts and two Bronze Stars during World War Two, Bud Moore showed the same courage and conviction in his civilian endeavours. A talented engineer with a celebrated eye for detail, he was already something of a NASCAR legend when Ford asked him to prepare two Mustangs for Parnelli Jones and George Follmer to drive in the 1969 SCCA Trans-Am Championship. Based around bodyshells that had been specially lightened and strengthened by Kar Kraft of Brighton, Michigan, the SportsRoof Mustangs that Moore created proved faster but more fragile than Roger Penske's hitherto unstoppable Chevrolet Camaros. Undeterred, the Blue Oval badged racers he developed for 1970 won six out of eleven rounds that year and with them the Championship title.

Built in the USA as a tribute to Bud Moore's fabled 1969/70 Trans-Am cars, this beautifully detailed Ford Mustang racer is described by the vendor as being in 'excellent' order with regard to its tuned 351ci V8 engine, four-speed Top Loader manual transmission, electrical equipment, bodywork, paintwork and interior trim. Set-up for American circuit usage, it further benefits from a fuel cell, 3.77 Positraction rear, period race seats / belts, heavy-duty suspension and uprated brakes. Sounding decidedly purposeful through open side pipes, this stunning Mustang would doubtless be great fun on competitive Tour events.
