Acknowledging the Ford Mustang’s storied racing history and pivotal role in the performance parts aftermarket, Dan Davis, Director of Ford Racing Technology, today announced plans to continue Mustang’s presence on the race track with a new performance parts and competition program.
Davis revealed a race version of the new Mustang during Ford’s press conference at the Specialty Equipment Manufacturer’s Association (SEMA) show. The Ford Racing Mustang show car is painted in legendary Bud Moore "orange and black" livery, replete with the number ’15’ in deference to Parnelli Jones’ Mustang Boss 302 Trans Am car.
"The Mustang is synonymous with performance modifications and competitive racing," Davis said. "It has an unparalleled pedigree in many forms of racing, and the all-new 2005 Mustang makes a terrific platform to continue that history of racing competition and victories.
"Ford Racing Performance Parts will be the one-stop shop for performance and racing when it comes to the new Mustang. We’re going to offer everything from a ’Body-in-White’ for the do-it-yourself builder, to performance upgrades for the shade-tree mechanic, all the way to a full ready-to-race competition car for the grassroots motorsports enthusiast."
