A gorgeous Blue Angels Mustang GT will be auctioned off for charity at the end of July. Improvements include a 500hp engine and redone exterior and interior.
Creation 'n Chrome created a gorgeous one-off Mustang GT for auction. Ford and EAA AirVenture have teamed up for the fourth straight year to produce a beautiful Blue Angels' themed Mustang GT that follows in the footsteps of several other charity-inspired creations. Last year's SR-71 Blackbird-themed Mustang was built in tandem with Shelby and Roush and was sold for $375,000. Performance for the Blue Angels Mustang GT has been boosted with the addition of a 500hp motor.
A supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine, Ford Racing handling pack and Brembo brakes give the Mustang some muscle. The interior looks fantastic. The pilots' famed yellow-striped suits serve as inspiration for the dual yellow stripes that adorn both the seats and seat belts. The custom Alcantara and leather Recaros carry an embroidered Blue Angels' crest. The yellow dash-mounted triple gauge pack has been taken straight from the Boss 302 Laguna Seca. This year's car features an awesome chrome blue paint scheme that pays tribute to the world-renowned F/A-18 Hornets.
The Valencia, California based customs house spent over 600 hours on the exterior. A Spectra Chrome process was used complimentary to hand painting to give the Mustang the fantastic look. A custom rear wing, Boss 302 front fascia and a set of HRE 590RS wheels finish off the exterior. "The high interest among aviators in the U.S. Navy and the 'Blue Angels' Mustang team will make this a very sought-after item and ensure EAA's ability to do some amazing things for our future aviation enthusiasts," said Tom Poberezny, EAA and AirVenture chairman.
The Blue Angels Mustang GT was produced by a partnership between Ford and EAA AirVenture and will go up for display at the end of this month in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. The Mustang will sit in the Ford Hanger during DAA AirVenture and is set for a July 28th auction date. Proceeds will benefit the EAA Young Eagles program.
