When most people think of the Mustang they typically think of Ford’s iconic pony car. However, the Mustang has a whole different meaning. Not only is it attributed to Ford’s halo car, but its nameplate is also shared with the famous P-51 Mustang fighter plane that essentially helped the North American Allied Forces beat the Axis powers during World War II. To commemorate this connection, Ford and Roush created this unique pony car.
The modified Mustang commemorates World War II triple flying ace, U.S. Army Air Force Colonel Bud Anderson, also known as “Old Crow.” It is the 12th model built in conjunction with a yearly celebration of P-51 Mustang pilots.
