Once a somewhat forgotten pony car, the SN95 generation of the Ford Mustang has slowly gained in popularity over the past couple of years, with many nice examples popping up at various auction sites. Thus far, that list includes an incredibly clean base 1994 model, a 265-mile 1994 GT convertible, and a 245-mile 1994 Cobra pace car convertible. Now, this 18k-mile 1994 Ford Mustang GT Ventoso has surfaced for sale at Bring a Trailer as a very cool, seldomly-seen example of the SN95-gen pony car, too.
Most pony car fans are likely unaware of what, exactly, a Ventoso is, but there’s a very good reason for that – this particular 1994 Ford Mustang GT is one of just six examples built by Kenne Bell Performance, and it was originally owned by that company’s president and founder, Jim Bell. It was used as a research and development car for the company prior to the launch of the Ventoso option package, which cost a cool $13,999 at the time.
Finished in Teal Clearcoat Metallic, this 1994 Ford Mustang GT Ventoso is equipped with a special body kit designed by Jim Bell and includes a cowl hood with twin NACA ducts, revised bumper covers, and side skirts, along with dual chrome exhaust tips, Ventoso decals, and 17-inch billet aluminum wheels wrapped with Bridgestone Potenza RE71 tires. Front cooling ducts help keep brake temps down, while Kenne Bell progressive-rate springs and BBK Gripp adjustable caster/camber plates help out in the handling department.
Inside the cabin, one will find a pair of Tenzo R bucket seats with Corbeau Racing harnesses, a rear seat delete, drilled aluminum pedals, and a chrome roll cage. However, the big story lies under the hood, where the Mustang’s 5.0L V8 has been treated to a Kenne Bell supercharger, a ram-air kit, an 80mm mass air flow meter, and Trick Flow Twisted Wedge cylinder heads, which sends power to the rear wheels via a five-speed manual transmission with a Centerforce clutch and an 8.8-inch Traction-Lok rear end stuffed with 3.08 gears.
A rare and historically notable machine, it’ll certainly be interesting to see what this Mustansg Ventoso ultimately hammers for, though we imagine that at least a few pony car fans will have their interest piqued by this opportunity.
