Earlier this month Ford and Roush teased the one-off Mustang they had teamed up to produce to celebrate the anniversary of D-Day. The Mustang is called Old Crow and is modeled on the P-51 Mustang fighter plane that was flown by U.S. Army Air Force Col. Bud Anderson. No real details were offered on the Mustang when the initial announcement was made.
Ford and Roush are now offering up the goods on the car. The key modification is the custom paint job that gives the 2019 “Old Crow” Mustang GT a livery inspired by Anderson’s aircraft. The Mustang GT 5.0-liter V8 engine is packing 710 horsepower and 610 pound-feet of torque. The Old Crow Mustang also sports a Roush Performance cold air induction system and X pipe along with a custom active exhaust system from Ford Performance.
The Old Crow Mustang rolls on Ford’s MagneRide suspension and has a custom set of 20-inch Roush wheels that are shod in Continental Extremecontact sport tires in 275/35R size. The Old Crow Mustang has Roush rear fascia aerofoils, Ford Performance front racing spoiler, 2020 Shelby GT500 rear spoiler, custom heat extractors on the hood, and blue rainbow-tinted exhaust tips meant to emulate the exhaust on the P-51 Mustang aircraft.
The interior was fully customized to go with the P51 Mustang aviation theme with green leather and canvas with a red shifter nob and door handles. The rear seat has been removed, and an aluminum rear-seat delete is added in its place. The seats feature Sparco four-point harnesses. The Old Crow Mustang is the 12th one-of-a-kind Ford that will be auctioned for the Experimental Aircraft Associations’ AirVenture show. All proceeds benefit the youth and adult aviation programs the EAA operates. The previous 11 Custom vehicles auctioned off have raised over $3.5 million to date.
