Ford Previews One-Off 'Red Tails' Edition Mustang

A truly unique and honorable way to remember the bravery of the Tuskegee Airmen.

To honor the Tuskegee Airmen, the U.S. Army Air Force's first unit of African American fighter pilots during WWII, a one-of-a-kind Ford Mustang GT will be auctioned off at the 2012 Experimental Aircraft Association AirVenture this July 26th. During the war, the Tuskegee Airmen flew the P-51 Mustang fighter plane that escorted and protected American bombers during their missions from the mighty German air force (the Luftwaffe).

In an effort to honor those brave American pilots who sacrificed so much, a 2013 Mustang GT has been given the special Tuskegee treatment. Appropriately taking VIN 00051 from the 2013 model line, this Mustang GT has a unique paint job that replicates the look of the P-51 planes which Tuskegee flew. The rear end has been painted red while the basic body color is silver with yellow accents. The interior has also been changed a bit, with the rear seats being removed in order to give the driver a better feeling of being in a fighter plane. There are also Recaro seats, special badges and floor mats.
