This faithful recreation of the Trans Am Championship-winning 1967 Mustang was built for Rick and Patti Sue Titus as a tribute to Rick’s father, Jerry, also known as Mr. Trans Am, by Greg Reynolds and John Brown of Reynolds Restorations, Yukon, Oklahoma.
It was featured as a cover story in Mustang and Fast Fords Magazine. The car’s design originates from the 1967 Trans Am Championship won by Carroll Shelby’s Shelby American, Ford Motor Company and Jerry Titus. A straight, rust-free Notchback body was sourced from Arizona and over 1,100 hours and 40,000 dollars in parts were used, including a 320-hp 302 Ford crate motor, GT40 aluminum heads, high-rise aluminum intake manifold, Holley 750 cfm double-pumper and Crane aluminum roller rockers. Having completed the 2013 Going to the Sun Rally, this amazing car travelled 1,200 miles in 5 days and never missed a beat, suffering only a rock-damaged windshield which has been replaced along with a new window gasket.
This Titus Tribute Mustang has proven itself to be a very strong and reliable rally car, with the 5-speed transmission and taller rear-end ratio making freeway driving a joy.
