2015 Ford Mustang Customized by Petty’s Garage Destined for Charity Auction

Petty’s Garage Mustang

  • Customized Ford Mustang will be auctioned off to fund Victory Junction children’s charity

  • 5.0-liter V8 engine features Roush supercharger and cold-air intake

  • One-off rear fascia boasts center-exit exhaust outlet

Richard Petty knows a thing or two about going fast and looking cool. When his shop set about building a 2015 Ford Mustang to debut at the 2014 Specialty Equipment Market Association show, Nov. 4-7, they had a lot to work with – a new body structure, fully independent front and rear suspension, all-new interior and new looks.

“We’ve been thinking about it since February, and it’s been all hands on deck since the Mustang arrived in our shop,” said Jeff Whaley, vice president, sales and operations, Petty’s Garage.

Under the hood, the all-new Mustang’s 5.0-liter V8 has been augmented by a Roush supercharger and cold-air intake. The front fascia has been tweaked with the fog lights moved inboard, freeing up space to install front brake cooling ducts. Custom six-piston brakes by Wilwood are mounted to a Roush coilover suspension, and 20-inch HRE three-piece wheels wearing 30-series Continental SportContact tires take care of corners. A unique spoiler is installed on the trunk lid and the rear bumper cover is modified for a single center-exit exhaust.

Inside, the car remains largely stock. “Ford really did a great job with this interior,” said Whaley. “We didn’t change much – just embroidered the Petty’s Garage logo into the seats and tweaked the floor mats. I love sitting in it.”

The Petty’s Garage Mustang is finished in two-tone BASF black and blue paint featuring white diamond pearl elements. Following its SEMA debut, the car will hit 18 Petty’s Garage events in 2015 along with Hot Rod Power Tour and Autorama. Then it will be up for bid at the 2016 Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction, with proceeds going directly to Victory Junction, a Petty family charity that helps chronically ill children attend summer camp.

Galpin Auto Sports Celebrates 50th Anniversary of Ford Mustang at 2014 SEMA Show

2015 Galpin Auto Sports Mustang

2015 GAS Ford Mustang

  • Galpin Auto Sports celebrates golden anniversary of Ford Mustang production with modified all-new pony car featuring gold theme

  • Gold powder-coated Whipple supercharger enhances output of 5.0-liter V8 engine to 725 horsepower

  • Custom LED headlights give the face of Mustang a whole new look

The tuning arm of the largest Ford dealer in the United States, Galpin Auto Sports, also known as GAS, is paying tribute to the long history of Ford Mustang with a customized car debuting at the 2014 Specialty Equipment Market Association show. The 2015 GAS Mustang carries a golden anniversary concept to celebrate the car’s 50 years of continuous production.

GAS began by giving the all-new Mustang a facelift, borrowing styling elements found elsewhere in the car. The front fascia is restyled to match the three strakes found in the factory headlights. New headlights have been created that integrate LED turn signals and turn on in sequence – just like the rear turn signals. A carbon fiber front splitter and rocker panels have been installed, as well as a more aggressive rear diffuser.

Open the hood to find a Whipple supercharger sitting atop the 5.0-liter Coyote V8. This is no off-the-shelf unit though; it’s been custom powder-coated to appear gold. A glass window integrated into the hood is designed to show off the engine, but the GAS Mustang is not just about looks. The car produces an astounding 725 horsepower. Suspension components from Steeda and an all-new exhaust from Magnaflow round out the mechanical enhancements.

“We like the black and gold idea, and really wanted to get the color as close to 24-carat gold as possible,” said Brandon Boeckmann, GAS operations manager. The 20-inch wheels, side sills, brake calipers and badging are all finished in gold. Inside, everything that is normally chrome or metallic has either been blacked-out or given the Midas touch. The Recaro seats are covered with a fabric finished in black and gold, and the headliner is black microsuede. The exterior is finished in paint that may appear black, but on further inspection is filled with gold metallic flecks.

The 2015 GAS Ford Mustang will be on display in the expansive 20,000-square-foot Ford booth at the 2014 SEMA show taking place at Las Vegas Convention Center, Nov. 4-7.

EcoBoost-Powered 2015 Ford Mustang from Full-Race Motorsports Set to Compete in SCCA Following SEMA Debut

Full-Race Motorsports Mustang

The 2.3-liter EcoBoost® four-cylinder engine debuting with the 2015 Ford Mustang ushers in a new era for pony car performance. Tuners like Full-Race Motorsports are more known for transforming imports into racers, but for the 2014 SEMA show, they’re bringing a very pumped-up pony car.

The small turbocharging outfit in Phoenix is developing an extensive kit dubbed “FreakoBoost” for the 2.3-liter EcoBoost. “We’re hand-building it all in-house; it’s a big task for our 15 guys,” notes Eric Marquiss, Full-Race Motorsports logistics manager. Changes include a new intake, a new exhaust manifold, bigger twin-scroll BorgWarner turbocharger, turbo downpipe, intercooler, oil cooler and cat-back exhaust system. The normal EcoBoost output of 310 horsepower and 320 lb.-ft. of torque has been pushed to an estimated 500 horsepower and 450 lb.-ft. of torque.

“We’re building this as a real race car,” Marquiss adds. “After SEMA, it will compete at SCCA events and eventually time attack events. This will be a plated, fully functional, street-driven track car that’s very competitive.”

To that end, the Mustang is getting an extensive set of racing parts. A functional carbon fiber rear spoiler and front splitter, coilover suspension, Penske adjustable dampers, uprated limited-slip differential, Brembo brakes, an adjustable roll-center kit, adjustable front and rear antiroll bars, Toyo Process R888 tires on Volk wheels and FIA-approved racing seats are just a few of the many parts being installed.

Look for the Full-Race Motorsports 2015 Ford Mustang on display in the Ford booth, Nov. 4-7.
