The original Mustang was the brainchild of Lee A. Iacocca, who had risen from humble salesman to company vice-president of Ford in five short years. One of the most successful American cars of all time and perhaps the most iconic, the Mustang came to epitomise 1960s motoring in the United States. The top-shelf, 289 cubic-inch V-8 version was a fine performer, and with the expertise of Carroll Shelby, its full racing potential was unleashed.
Restored by German racing team Derichs over 2001–2002 as a race machine, this Mustang was campaigned between 2004 and 2007 by Erwin Derichs in the FIA Historic European Touring Car Championship and was reported as having never suffered any accident damage during its racing career. In 2005 and 2006, the car came second in its class, and in the latter season, it was also a front runner in the overall classification. Moreover, the Mustang won both the FIA Rallies Saarland 2004 and Köln-Ahrweiler 2004. After being sold in 2007, various maintenance work has been performed, including most recently a 200-plus hour freshening. Since then, the car has been driven just one hour in testing on the track and has zero hours of race use.
Complete with FIA papers from 2015 and invoices dating from 2013–2015, this Ford Mustang 289 coupé offers a chance to hit the track in a competitive American legend.
