True to Penrite’s form as a major partner who enjoys updating their race liveries, the team raced a number of different colour schemes across the season and perhaps their best example of this was their retro paint job raced at the Penrite Oil Sandown 500. Joined by 5-time Bathurst 1000 winner Garth Tander on co-driving duties for the endurance races, the retro #26 Mustang was inspired by Allan Moffat’s 1979 Ford XC Federation Falcon. The livery was designed to honour Moffat’s contribution to Australian motorsport while also raising awareness of, and support for, patients and families affected by dementia – a disease Moffat publicly disclosed he was battling earlier in the year.The retro look suited the Gen3 Mustang perfectly and looked so impressive. It will be a fine addition to collections, with part proceeds of the sale of this model to be donated to Dementia Australia once it is released.This 1:43 scale model is scheduled to be produced in high quality sealed body die-cast with clear windows, detailed racing cockpit and undercarriage details unique to the Gen3 floorpan.Comprised of roughly 65 individual metal and plastic parts plus anywhere between 50-100 steps in paint and decoration finishing, this is a high quality collectors model for fans of this scale.It is scheduled to be produced in an exclusive one-off limited edition, presented in a display case with the model attached to a white base plate which features the car details printed on it. An individually numbered backing board featuring the edition number is also included as part of the package and acts as the Certificate of Authenticity for the release.Once this model is sold out, it won’t be available again.Please place your pre-order at your local stockist or register your interest for it online here to be notified exclusively when this model is released.
