    IMSA - 1983 Ford Mustang GTP Documentary

    Came across this little 30 min video which some of you might find interesting.....

    A look at the 1983 debut for Fordís front-engine Mustang GTP at the Road America IMSA event. Designed by Bob Riley, using a 1.7-liter 4cyl turbo, two cars were entered for Tim CoConis/Klaus Ludwig, and Geoff Brabham/Bobby Rahal.

    The original VHS tape, courtesy of Bob and Bill Riley, sat forgotten in a desk for more than 30 years until it was unearthed during the summer of 2017.

    That is a good looking Fox.

    Great find!

      Excellent post, I love retro automotive documentaries like that. Problem is that's hardly a mustang, very similar to the zakspeed Capri. I really like the dtm foxbodies as they were not too far from the production model.
