Ford Teases One-Off ‘Old Crow’ Mustang

For 21 years Ford has been supporting the Experimental Aircraft Association’s AirVenture (EAA) and during that time they have created 11 custom cars auctioned off at the annual event for charity. This year is no exception as the manufacturer plans to auction this one-of-a-kind Mustang GT built by Roush Performance.

Last year’s ES Mustang built by RTR paid tribute the Eagle Squadron pilots of WWII and was inspired by the Spitfires they flew. This year’s creation was built to mark the 75th anniversary of the battle of Normandy and draws inspiration from Col. Bud Anderson’s P-51 Mustang he flew.

Via Ford:

Anderson, a triple ace fighter pilot, flew two combat tours and 116 missions in his P-51 Mustangs he nicknamed Old Crow. He was never hit by enemy fire, including while providing aerial support to Allied troops on D-Day. Anderson spent more than six continuous hours in flight that day in his P-51 Mustang.

The Ford Mustang will carry a similar livery to Anderson’s plane including its nickname “Old Crow.” Featuring a ROUSH/Ford Performance supercharger the Mustang will pack over 700hp, but further details will be unveiled with the rest of the car in the coming weeks. The car will be auctioned off July 25 at “The Gathering” auction, part of EAA’s annual AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
