Ford Teases Special WWII Mustang
In honor of the 75th anniversary of D-Day, the Blue Oval has teased its latest custom GT that will be put up for auction at EAA Airventure on July 25th. The car is a nod to the “Old Crow” P-51 Mustang fighter planes that Colonel Bud Anderson flew during WWII, including lending support during D-Day.
“This year’s design is especially fitting for the 75-year commemoration of D-Day and the special place we reserve for heroes like Col. Anderson and countless others who demonstrated unparalleled valor and sacrifice,” said Craig Metros, Ford design director about this year’s custom Mustang.
The “Old Crow” Mustang GT packs a supercharger that brings the power output up to 700-hp from the stock 460-hp. There are other performance parts, but no details have been confirmed as of yet. We’re not sure how much this ride will go for, but considering last years custom ride for the auction sold for $420,000, we can assume it’ll be around that. We’ll keep you posted.
