Allan Moffat Driven Ford for Auction
A timeless allure of classic cars have come to auction, including a 1926 Ford TT driven by legendary V8 driver Allan Moffat, ushering in a new era of appreciation for the beauty and craftmanship of older generation cars, which are still captivating the attention of car enthusiasts around the world.
Timely with the GC 500 Supercars race this weekend an iconic 1926 Ford TT classic once driven by V8 Supercar driver Allan Moffat is going to auction this Saturday.
In those times, Morley Ford had an advertisement running on TV of a brass band playing on the back of the truck and being driven around the city by V8 Supercar driver, Allan Moffat. It then moved to the Gold Coast in 1988 where it was stored in a shipping container until 2010. It was then fully restored and driven around periodically to club meets.
The 1926 Ford TT has been fully restored by the current custodian who has owned and loved the car over the last 45 years. It was purchased in Melbourne in 1980, previously owned by well-know Ford dealer Morley Ford and situated on the banks of the Yarra River, where the Crown Casino now stands.
