Most of you reading this post may be asking yourself who is Holman & Moody and why are they building a 2014 50th Anniversary Mustang?   Well you are not alone because I asked myself the same question although I have read about them before in a few of my Mustang books but nothing really registered until now.

According to the press release before Saleen, before Roush, and even before Shelby, a legendary American Ford performance dynasty helped Alan Mann Racing secure the initial professional race win for the Ford Mustang – Holman & Moody. In September 1964, the Alan Mann Racing Team of England 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 fifty years after the initial pairing, 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 Lee 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 original race cars.
