Vaughn Gittin Jr.'s Ready To Rock ponycar is limited to 500 examples.
Championship drifter and professional "fun-haver" Vaughn Gittin Jr. has been building fast Ford's through his RTR (Ready To Rock) Vehicles company for more than a decade. It specializes in Mustangs, but the company will deal with almost anything with a Ford badge. Today, Gittin Jr. introduced the RTR Series 1 for 2021 Ford Mustang GT Premium and EcoBoost pony cars, with or without MagneRide.
Like Roush and Shelby, RTR offers several series of vehicles, with 1 being the cheapest. This package, which can be installed by a licensed Ford dealer, first adds several serialized components including RTR illuminated sill plates, RTR dash plaque, an RTR radiator cover badge and a certificate of authenticity. These will all be serialized because RTR is only making 500 of these packages, most of which are sold out.
As for the body, RTR adds a bunch of accents including a windshield banner, RTR LEDs, new puddle lamps, front, side and rear quarter splitters, a Gurney flap, new rear diffuser, badges graphics and Ford Performance hood struts, which we have personal experience with and say they are a solid upgrade. Inside the cabin, in addition to the serialized stuff, you also get an RTR shift knob and RTR floormats.
The Series 1 gets a few handling upgrades including the Ford Performance Track Handling Pack for the non MagneRide cars and the Ford Performance MagneRide Suspension Kit for cars with the adaptive shocks. It also comes with an aluminum strut tower brace, Ford Performance wheels, RTR center caps and black lug nuts.
Both packages cost $6,295 and require a 10-hour installation, which RTR is setting at $1,200. So all in you'll be paying $7,495, not a small amount, but it will make your Mustang unique, and with a jillion of them on the road, that's a good thing.
In addition to the Mustang RTR Series 1, the company also has packages for the new Bronco and the Ranger pickup, as well as loads of parts for the F-150 from model years 2018-2020. RTR covers all Mustangs in the last two generations, starting in 2005.
