What Is the Red Tails Mustang?Last Updated July 21, 2021 | Andrew Boyle
Based on the legendary Red Tail P-51 Mustang plane, the Red Tails Mustang was a special-edition Mustang auctioned off to benefit the Experimental Aircraft Association. This 2013 Mustang GT featured a custom paint scheme, custom embroidered racing seats, and a twin-screw Whipple supercharger pack.
In 1982, Ford addressed the needs of the law enforcement community by offering a lighter, faster and more nimble vehicle than the one's police were using called the Special Services Package. The SSP Mustang featured a Foxbody platform with a 5.0 engine and automatic transmission.
In the late 1960s, the Mustang Rainbow of Colors promotion allowed customers the choice of 13 bold colors such as Hot Pink, Poppy Green, Flower Power Red, and Dandelion Yellow. This promotion was available to customers in the western United States.
Take the GT350, add a custom yellow finish, huge Forgiato wheels, a high-flying race wing and multi-colored daytime running lights and you'll get the "Ole Yeller" Mustang. This one-of-a-kind Mustang was built to benefit the Experimental Aircraft Association's youth pilot education program and was successful in raising almost $300,000.
