After nearly 50 years, Holman & Moody is back building Mustangs. At this week’s SEMA Show in Las Vegas, H&M president Lee Holman introduced a limited-edition 2014 TdF Mustang to commemorate the company’s involvement with the Mustang’s first race win.
In September 1964, the Alan Mann Racing Team of Great Britain fielded three Mustangs that were specially prepped using engines and performance parts supplied by Holman & Moody in the 4,000 mile long “Tour de France Automobile” rally. “To commemorate the Mustang’s first race win 50 years ago, Holman & Moody is creating a limited-edition 50th Anniversary Holman & Moody TdF Mustang, complete with dealer-installed enhancements aimed at producing the ideal high performance track-day car,” said Holman. “Components have been carefully selected to make the 50th Anniversary TdF Mustang a spirited competitor worthy of carrying the Holman & Moody name. A unique blend of Ford Racing Performance Parts and Holman & Moody components make this Mustang a true performer and a fitting tribute to the 1964 race winners.”Modifications to the 1964 Mustang race cars included bigger and better brakes, an upgraded radiator for extra cooling, a limited-slip rear end, a modest horsepower increase, a lowered race-tuned suspension, and a free flowing exhaust. The 2014 Holman & Moody 50th Anniversary TdF Mustang holds true to the original with similar modifications and even the same bright red hue that adorned the 1964 race cars. Production will be limited to 500 cars to ensure the exclusivity and collectability.
