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.

Prestige Ford Supports “Go Red For Women”

Randall Reed's Prestige Ford supports "Go Red for Women" and in style!

Randall Reed’s Prestige Ford supports “Go Red for Women” and our family-owned dealership team is doing it in style!

One in three women die of heart disease and stroke, but for many, it can be prevented. Much of that lies in learning about how to prevent heart disease and know the signs and risks, as well.

Today the American Heart Association is raising awareness by designating February 6th to be “Go Red for Women” day. It is a call to action to stand united in the fight on heart disease. It’s a call for women to become success story. A story of survival. The American Heart Association states: “To show us your battle scars and to be proud of the warrior you’ve become.” When we all work together, we have the power to save lives — and that life could be our won.

In a show of support and awareness, the Randall Reed’s Prestige Ford team is decked out in their favorite red garb. “It’s so important that we pause to think about the serious nature of this information and what we can do to help remind others so we can all get more educated and stay healthy,” said Justin Wright, GM/OP of Prestige Ford in Garland (serving Dallas, Rockwall, Mesquite, Richardson, Plano and surrounding cities).

Each year, Prestige gathers together for a family photo to show their grand support and to encourage all the women in their lives — themselves included — to stop, learn and take care of themselves and their heart. To get risk factors, preventative information and how you can participate, visit www.GoRedForWomen.com!

Garland Community Rallies in Support of Local Firefighter

Screen Shot 2015-01-15 at 1.24.14 AMGarland, Texas is home of Randall Reed’s Prestige Ford and an amazing community that takes care one another. When our team heard that one of our local firefighters was in need of assistance, we wanted to help and spread the word in hopes that other’s will lend a hand, as well.

While on vacation, Randy Baker, a Garland firefighter had a heart attack and was rushed to a local hospital in Cozumel last week. While his condition is stabilizing a bit more every day, he will not be able to fly home without medical support. So the Garland Fire Department rallied around their fellow firefighter and set up a GoFundMe page to help raise funds for medical transport. All the money raised will go directly to help bring Mr. Baker back to Dallas for the treatments he needs.

Watch NBC5 News Story

Mr. Baker has been with the Garland Fire Fighters Association for 22 years. He has two children in their early 20s. If you can help, please help and spread the word. Garland is a strong community, and even stronger when we band together!

The new truck features calibration changes to its powertrain, driveline, traction control, ABS and AdvanceTrac stability control for optimal performance. There are six preset modes for the truck depending on terrain and driving conditions:

  • Normal mode for everyday driving
  • Street mode for higher-performance, on-road driving
  • Weather mode for rain, snow or ice
  • Mud and sand mode for muddy and sandy trails and terrain
  • Baja mode for high-speed desert running
