In 1984 Dick Johnson envisioned the Ford Mustang GT as a car that could be competitive under the new Group A racing rules scheduled for 1958. He tracked down two in Germany and took them back to his Queensland workshops for an engine rebuild and thorough race preparation. Althouigh Johnson described the car as one of the best handling and braking cars he has ever driven, the lack of engine power (just 260kw!) meant that during the 1986 ATCC season the car was far from competitive.

After qualifying 5th for the 1986 Bathurst 1000, DIck Johnson and Gregg Hansford finished fourth in the Palmer Tube Mills Ford Mustang GT, one lap down from the podium finishers.

"The Mustang was a great little car. It's just unfortunate the power-toweight ratio was not the most desirable, but the handling, braking and stability was superb, It was a damn good car..." - Dick Johnson.
