Randall Reed’s Prestige Ford in Garland hasn’t met a Mustang we didn’t love, especially custom creations. As always, Ford Motor Co. is kickin’ things up a notch. It is teaming up with Petty’s Garage with plans to build a new 627-horsepower* Mustang GT. The limited-edition fastback is inspired by the popular Petty’s Garage Mustang GT that was on display at last year’s SEMA show in Vegas.

“We received a tremendous amount of positive feedback about our Petty’s Garage Mustang GT displayed at the SEMA show,” said Jeff Whaley, Petty’s Garage COO. “With so much interest, we began to explore the possibility of building a limited run.”

Two versions of the Petty’s Garage ‘stang will be built this year; the Stage 1 version is going to be limited to 100 units, while there will only be 43 Stage 2 units.

Stage 1 Petty’s Garage Mustang GTScreen Shot 2015-02-25 at 11.27.24 PM

This version features a host of custom modifications – both visually and under the hood. A Petty’s Garage fascia at the front imparts a unique look, while a reworked rear fascia features a center-exit exhaust and prominently showcased race-inspired spoiler. Inside, custom embroidered head restraints, floor mats and Richard Petty’s own signature on the dashboard set this Mustang GT apart from the rest.

A Ford Racing/ROUSH supercharger, cold air intake, custom engine calibration and MagnaFlow exhaust system are fitted to Mustang GT’s 5.0-liter engine, boosting output to 627 horsepower. Power is delivered to the road by custom 20-inch Petty’s Garage HRE FlowForm wheels shod with Continental tires.

It can be ordered in any color, with all unique bodywork painted to match in-house at Petty’s Garage.

Stage 2 Petty’s Garage Mustang GT

This version has all the features found on the Stage 1 ‘stang, the Stage 2 version includes a Petty’s Garage Wilwood big brake upgrade and a complete Petty’s Garage custom two-tone paint job. Stage 2 Mustang GT will ride on Petty’s Garage HRE three-piece forged-aluminum wheels.

Of the 43 Petty’s Garage Stage 2 Mustang GTs planned, one is already spoken for. Rock ’n’ roll legend Brian Johnson has his order in for the first car. “This Mustang has just taken my breath away,” said Johnson, lead singer for AC/DC. “It really is one of the best cars I’ve ever driven. I didn’t have an American car, but I do now!”

Pretty Petty Paint

The Petty’s Garage Stage 2 Mustang GT’s custom two-tone paint job is identical to the 2014 SEMA show car. Using crushed-and-tumbled glass combined with iconic Petty Blue paint, Petty’s Garage has created a one-of-a-kind color for the lower half of the car. A custom tri-coat pearlescent blend of Ford Tuxedo Black complements Petty Blue for the upper half. “The King’s” legendary No. 43 is expertly ghosted into the paint on the fastback Mustang GT’s hood and C-pillar.

So, how much can one of these beauties set you back? The Stage 1 version carries an MSRP of $62,210, while the Stage 2 comes in at $92,210. Orders for this limited-edition Mustang GT can be placed at any Ford dealership on a first-come, first-served basis.

Ready for your own Ford Mustang? From New 2015 to custom to pre-owned, Prestige Ford at 3601 S. Shiloh Road (off 635 and Garland Road) is here to help you find your dream ride! www.PrestigeGarland.com

*Powertrain modifications are covered by a Ford Racing/ROUSH Performance parts limited warranty; Petty’s Garage components and installation carry a 36-month, 36,000-mile warranty from Petty’s Garage.
