American Muscle To Give Away Track-Ready Mustang, F-150 Raptor, and Aluminum Trailer
Ford Mustang and F-150 enthusiasts likely know American Muscle. It’s a huge aftermarket parts supplier with add-on parts ranging from cosmetic bits to full crate engines ready for a project car. Well, the retailer is throwing a huge give-away with one lucky winner taking home a 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor, an 850-horsepower Mustang, and an aluminum race trailer stocked full of tools and race tires!
At the heart of the package is the highly tuned Mustang. This current-gen car has a Whipple supercharger sitting on its modified 5.0-liter Coyote V-8 that makes 850 horsepower at the crank and just over 725 horsepower at the rear wheels. It comes painted in a custom Tangerine Orange paint with a unique styling package. It rides on upgraded wheels and tires that can be swapped out for the drag slicks and skinnies found on the trailer. All told, this one-off Mustang has more than $30,000 worth of aftermarket parts bolted on.
Towing duties are given to a 2017 F-150 Raptor SuperCab. It comes untouched from the factory in Blue Flame paint with the optional Black Graphics Package. American Muscle didn’t have to do anything to the Raptor’s 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V-6 since it makes an impressive 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque. The 35-inch-tall BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 tires and 10-spoke wheels reamain. The Raptor’s 6,000-pound towing capacity should be more than enough to pull the Mustang and aluminum trailer to the track.
Speaking of the trailer, it comes equipped with drag radials for the Mustang’s rear axle and skinnies for the front. It also has a full assortment of tools a race team might need in the pits.
This is perhaps the most comprehensive give-away package we’ve ever seen, so be sure to enter to win. You can enter weekly until November 11, 2016. The winner will be announced on November 25.

It’s not quite the same as winning a Mustang, but Ford Motor Credit Company is offering folks the opportunity to take a long road trip in the 2015 Mustang in its Ford Credit Dream Drive Sweepstakes. On top of that, the winner will also get a nice wad of cash for the trip.
In this giveaway, Ford Motor Credit is offering one Canadian and one American the opportunity to pilot the Mustang along their predetermined route of choice. The winners can choose from six famous routes, including “Route 66” from Arizona to Las Vegas, “Going-to-the-Sun” Road from Glacier National Park to Flathead, Montana, “Pacific Coast Highway” from Monterey to Laguna Beach, California, “Great River Road” from Memphis, Tennessee to New Orleans, Louisiana, “Overseas Highway” from Miami to the Florida Keys, and “Trans-Canada Highway” from Kelowna, British Columbia, to Calgary, Alberta.
Along with getting to whip the Mustang along one of these awesome routes, Ford Motor Credit will also give the winners of the four-day, three-night road trip round-trip airfare and free lodging for you and a guest, a $750 gas card, a $1,500 gift card, a camera, and other "surprises along the way." The winners also get the opportunity to tailor the trip to their liking, like scheduling a tour at one of the destinations.
If you’re interested, you U.S.-based folks can enter at FordCreditDreamDrive.com and Canadians can enter here.
But hurry. The entry deadline is June 8th.
There is no mention of what 2015 Ford Mustang each winner will pilot, but I would assume that Fordwould put them in either the new Ecoboost model or the range-topping GT. It would be quite the buzzkill to have to pilot around the V-6-powered model.

Do you want an 800-horsepower 2015 Ford Mustang by MMD and Chip Foose? Here’s your chance, as American Muscle is giving one away. To enter, just click here and fill out the entry form by August 3rd, 2015.
This MMD- and Foose-designed `Stang has all the goodies you need to make for one hell of a ride. On the outside, it has a front chin spoiler, a hood scoop, rocker panels, quarter-window louvers, a rear spoiler, and side scoops from MMD by Foose. Rolling stock and custom stripes are both provided by Foose.
Inside the cabin, there are custom doorsill plates and headrests created custom by MMD by Foose.
But the engine is where all the real excitement happens, as this Mustang GT features the Bama Supercharger Package, which includes a 2.9-liter Whipple blower. The supercharger combined with a Magnaflow Competition cat-back exhaust system pushs the V-8 to its 800 horses (over 650 horsepower at the wheels).
Sending the power to the rear differential is a carbon-fiber driveshaft, while axle half-shafts rated at 1,400 horsepower get the power to the wheels from there.
With power comes the need for control, and MMD by Foose is happy to oblige with Vogtland Sport lowering springs. According to the fine print, the approximate value of this badass Mustang is $70,000, so even if you don’t want the car, you can likely sell it for a hefty sum.
The typical rules apply: you must be 18 years or older, must be a resident of the U.S. or Canada, etc., etc. You can catch all of the official rules under the entry form at the above link. One neat twist to this sweepstakes is that American Muscle doesn’t limit you to just one entry. You may enter once per week.

Back in the day, Mustangs caught a lot of flak for being "girls’ cars." Apparently they still are, because this one has to be the best girl’s car ever. First, because it’s a $45,000 2015 Mustang. Second because it’s part of a sweepstakes thrown by Ford’s own Breast Cancer charity, Warriors in Pink. But most of all, because if you’re the lucky winner of said sweepstakes, they’ll drop it off at your house — for free!
Ford has been involved in Breast Cancer charities for 21 years now, helping to raise awareness, funds for research, awareness campaigns for other charities, and helping those currently fighting breast cancer to live a little better until they win. Ford’s been involved for a long time in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure; which sadly, does not involve a bunch of Can-Am style Mustangs hammering around Laguna Seca. Though, how awesome would that be?
Until then, Ford’s footing the bill for its "More Good Days" Sweepstakes, which aims to raise public awareness for its website of the same name. The site’s mostly targeted toward the people who make a difference in a cancer warrior’s life — the family, friends and community support they rely on to have "more good days." They’re giving away four prizes a month for eight months; these include gas cards, Warriors in Pink gear, a flower arrangement, gift baskets, and gift cards for retailers and salons. But if you’re reading this, you probably don’t care so much about the free mani-pedi as the sweepstakes grand prize: A custom 2015 Mustang.
The website doesn’t say whether or not it’s a GT, but that’s probably a pretty safe bet given its $45,000 value quote. Besides, there’s no way Ford would give away a V-6 in an awesome, high-profile sweepstakes like this.
Everyone knows V-6 Mustangs are girls’ cars.

Ford is once again giving potential customers the chance to get behind the wheel of some of its most popular vehicles, in the EcoBoost Challenge, a 17-city tour that sees interested buyers navigating predetermined courses to feel firsthand what it’s like to put some of the blue oval’s products through their paces. The event is free, and to sweeten the deal each participant is automatically entered for a chance to win a brand new 2015 Ford Edge.
“With EcoBoost engines now available across 100 percent of our U.S. light-duty lineup, the EcoBoost Challenge lets consumers experience this innovative technology that helps Ford deliver better fuel economy with a more engaging driving experience than the competition,” said Michele Bartlett, Ford group marketing manager for large cars and SUVs. “Not only is the EcoBoost Challenge a lot of fun, but getting people in the driver’s seat is the best way for them to experience the craftsmanship, innovation and performance of the Ford lineup.”
Over 28,000 people took part in last year’s challenge. On hand this year is the 2015 Expedition, Escape, Fusion Hybrid and Transit Connect Wagon, not to mention the new Edge. For the more performance-oriented clientele, Ford will provide a Fiesta ST, Focus ST, and the new Mustang EcoBoost. Driving experiences include the ST Reaction Time Challenge and a dedicated Mustang course, both of which draw similarities to an autocross run. There’s also a Street Drive course that highlights a variety of Ford’s driver’s aides technologies (such as park assist). There’s even a “ShiftPhobia” boot camp to help you learn how to row your own.
The EcoBoost Challenge is already underway, with future events scheduled for Seattle, Chicago, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Orlando, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Rochester, and Minneapolis. Register here.

What’s better than a free 2015 Ford Mustang? How about a free 2015 Ford Mustang RTR! That’s exactly what one lucky person will snag the keys to in November thanks to the “You Get My Drift” sweepstakes sponsored by Gumout and Black Magic. The new Mustang RTR was unveiled at the 2014 SEMA Show, so it isn’t a surprise that the winner will take possession of their new car at this year’s show in Las Vegas.
The contest runs from April 9 through July 30, and it is open to anyone over the age of 18 years old living in the contiguous 48 states. To enter, just fill out the form online (or via snail mail), and the best part is that you can enter a submission each day until the contest expires.
As a refresher, the 2015 Ford Mustang RTR is the result of Formula Drift Champion Vaughn Gittin, Jr. getting his hands on the all-new sixth-gen Mustang. The RTR package is on sale now at select Ford dealerships, which in base form gives the new Mustang a more aggressive styling. Step up to the Stage 2 package, though, and the RTR lays down 725-tireshredding-horsepower.

Ford unveiled the latest edition of its street-legal trophy truck on Monday, and it’s put together in a way that’ll make a full-grown adult giddy. The 2017 Raptor is the kind of off-roader that you think about when you’re bored in history class (or a staff meeting), with its big, chunky tires, towering suspension, and a turbo V-6 that can churn the roughest terra into finely ground dust.
Now, kids who happen to be in Detroit for the North American International Auto Show can stop by the blue oval booth for a chance to snag their very own collectible Raptor model. Thanks to a partnership with scale-plastic model-maker Revell, Ford is handing out the kits for free through January 25th.
This 20-piece, limited-edition toy is a surefire memory-maker for any youngster eager to see Ford’s new truck in the metal.
No word yet on how Ford will determine who gets their hands on this giveaway, so your best bet is arrive early. Use our Detroit Auto Show Preview to help plan your visit. Can’t make it to Motor City, but still want your very own model Raptor? You’ll have to wait for it to go on sale in June 2015. Better start saving that allowance money.

Fancy a 2015 Ford Mustang but can’t afford to pay at least $24,425 for an entry-level model? Or would you rather use that amount to buy something more purposeful, say a Dodge Grand Caravan? Whatever the reason, you may have the chance to take a brand-new 2015 Mustang home for free courtesy of Ford and the 2014 BET Awards.
All you have to do is create a 60-second video in which you show and tell how you and your footage embody the passion and spirit of the Ford Mustang. The clip must be uploaded on the "Mustang And Me" campaign page on BET’s website by 6 PM EDT on June 3rd.
The big winner will be announced during the live broadcast of the 2014 BET Awards on June 29. This year’s event will be held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, with Chris Rock acting as the main host.
There’s no official word as to what Mustang model the winner will be receiving, but we have a feeling we’re talking about an entry-level, V-6-powered pony. You know what they say, never look a gift horse in the mouth.
In case you missed it earlier this month, Ford is also raffling a unique 2015 Mustang 50 Years Convertible by August 16. Raffle tickets cost $20 each and proceeds will benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and its "No Opportunity Wasted" MS research initiative.

We’ve learned everything Ford would tell us about the 2015 Mustang 50 Year Limited Edition at the New York Auto Show last month, when the iconic pony turned half a century, but what Ford failed to mention is that this special muscle car will also get a convertible version.
Unfortunately, the drop-top pony isn’t intended to hit dealerships along with other 2015 Mustangs. The 50 Year Limited Edition-based cabriolet will only be built as a one-off, with its lucky owner to be decided through a charitable raffle.
Finished in Wimbledon White and fitted with all the amenities found on the 50th Anniversary Mustang, this unique ride will be equipped with a special instrument panel badge with serial number 0001 of 0001 and signed by company Executive Chairman Bill Ford. Just like the 50 Year Limited Edition, the convertible will be built in GT guise, with the iconic 5.0-liter, V-8 Coyote engine under the hood.
The muscle car will be donated to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, who is raffling it to raise funds for its "No Opportunity Wasted" MS research initiative. The raffle tickets can be purchased in "limited numbers" through both the National MS Society and Ford, as well as on Ford4MS.com, for $20 each. The Society is hoping to raise $2 million for the unique Mustang, which shouldn’t be too hard. To achieve this goal, Ford and the National MS Society need to sell 100,000 tickets.
The winning raffle ticket will be drawn during the Woodward Dream Cruise on August 16.

Ford has just unveiled an updated customizer for 2013 and although this may seem like a non-news event, they threw in a giveaway to pique our interests. This new customizer allows potential buyers, or bored employees, to play with all the options available for the Mustang, but it also provides the chance to win "Your Fantasy Mustang." In fact, they will be giving away four different Mustangs: a Mustang V6, a Mustang GT, a Mustang Boss 302, and a Mustang Shelby GT500.
All you have to do is go online, create the Mustang of your dreams, save it, and start praying. At the end of the year, Ford will pick four winners from all the cars entered into the contest. The new customizer will allow you to apply a dizzying array of colors, graphics, body kits, and wheels to achieve the look you want. The winners will have their cars produced exactly as they designed them to look, so be careful what you wish for!
This is the kind of giveaway that can pretty much put a smile on just about everyone’s face. Rockstar has teamed up with Ford to give away one of three models as part of their "Drive like a Champion" giveaway. The winner can choose between the 2013 Ford Focus ST, the 2013 Ford Mustang GT and the 2012 Ford F-150, and all they have to do us head over to www.rockstar69.com/drive to enter.
Entering the contest is easy too. Contestants need to choose between Tanner Foust or Brian Deegan, then choose one of the three models, type in your contact information, and patiently wait until October 15, 2012 for the winners to be announced. We wish there was some sort of virtual race to win, but unfortunately, it’s all random. Of course, you have to be a United States resident and be at least eighteen (18) years of age at the time of entry to be able to enter the contest, as well as read the official terms of the contest in all of its fine print glory.
Even if you don’t end up winning one of Ford’s pride and joys, you can still win a few other prizes, including a year supply of Rockstar. That’ll get your engines revving!
Let us know which of the three models you would like to win in the comments section below! But remember, in order to be entered into the contest, you must head over to www.rockstar69.com/drive!
It didn’t take long for Raybestos to get their hands on a 2013 Roush Performance Stage 3 Mustang, did it? A week after Roush first broke news about their 2013 Mustang program, Raybestos has come out with a specially-tuned Mustang based on the Roush program. Using all the aero and performance enhancements that are part of the Roush Stage 3 kit, Raybestos added a slew of mechanical parts, including Raybestos racing brakes and chassis parts, on the tuned-up Mustang.
The result is a car teeming with 650 fire-breathing horsepower and 550 lb-ft of torque that promises to be a tuned-up Ford Mustang the likes of which we have never seen before. It also includes a six-speed manual transmission, high performance tires, a ROUSH tuned suspension, and Raybestos chassis components.
The Roush Stage 3 Mustang by Raybestos Garage is still a ways away from being a finished product, but Raybestos was nice enough to drop us a teaser sketch and a teaser video of their Mustang project. If you want to witness the build in its entirety, you can check it on Raybestos’ official website. Better yet, if you want to go home with the one-off muscle car, you can enter a contest on the site for the chance to win it. All you have to do is fill out some personal information, check out the terms of agreement, and hit enter.
