Back in the mid-1980s after the end of the local Group C touring car rules, Dick Johnson opted to purchase a pair of Zakspeed-built Mustangs from Germany for the introduction of the new Group A rulebook. This car was brought into Australia in late 1984 and actually taken to Bathurst by Johnson as a back-up for the team’s primary entry, #17 Palmer Tube Mills Falcon XE.

1977 - one of the great Bathurst 1000 races. Alan Moffat (partnered with Jacky Ickx of all people) leads Colin Bond across the line for a Ford 1-2. During the race team boss Moffat offered Bond a drive alongside him for 1978. This came in handy when the leader's car hit trouble and Bond did the courteous thing and refused to pass for the win. He later said he regretted being such a good employee!

1977 Moffat / Bond Ford XC Falcons a Win for Colin Bond and Allan Moffat made Ford Australia very Happy.
