The Petty’s Garage Stage 2 Mustang GT’s custom two-tone paint job features Petty Blue for the car's lower half and a custom tri-coat pearlescent blend of Ford Tuxedo Black for the upper half.
Ford Motor Co. and Petty’s Garage are teaming up to build a new 627hp Mustang GT—a limited-edition fastback inspired by the Petty’s Garage Mustang GT that was on display at the 2014 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
Two versions of the Petty’s Garage Mustang GT will be built this year; the Stage 1 version will be limited to 100 units, while the even more exclusive Stage 2 version will total 43 units. Stage 1 Petty’s Garage Mustang GT will feature a host of custom modifications—both visual tweaks 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, the Mustang GT features custom embroidered head restraints, floor mats and Richard Petty’s own signature on the dashboard.
A Ford Racing/Roush supercharger, cold-air intake, custom engine calibration and MagnaFlow exhaust system are fitted to Mustang GT’s 5.0L engine, boosting output to 627 hp. Power is delivered to the road by custom 20-in. Petty’s Garage HRE FlowForm wheels shod with Continental tires. Stage 1 Mustang GT can be ordered in any color, with all unique bodywork painted to match in-house at Petty’s Garage.
Along with the features found on the Stage 1 car, 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, only 42 remain, as rock n’ roll legend Brian Johnson has an order in for the first car.
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 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 ghosted into the paint on the fastback Mustang GT’s hood and C-pillar.
The Petty’s Garage Stage 1 car carries an MSRP of $62,210, while the Stage 2 car 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.
