'We received a tremendous amount of positive feedback about our Petty's Garage Mustang GT displayed at the SEMA show,' said Jeff Whaley, Petty's Garage COO. 'With so much interest, we began to explore the possibility of building a limited run of the Petty's Garage Mustang GT.'

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, custom embroidered head restraints, floor mats and Richard Petty's own signature on the dashboard set this Mustang GT apart from the rest.


A Ford Racing/Roush supercharger, cold air intake, custom engine calibration and MagnaFlow exhaust system are fitted to Mustang GT's 5.0-liter engine, boosting output to 627 horsepower. Power is delivered to the road by custom 20-inch 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. 'This Mustang has just taken my breath away,' said Johnson, lead singer for AC/DC. 'It really is one of the best cars I've ever driven. I didn't have an American car, but I do now!'


Paint fit for 'The King'

The Petty's Garage Stage 2 Mustang GT's custom two-tone paint job is identical to the 2014 SEMA show car. Úsing crushed-and-tumbled glass combined with iconic 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 expertly 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.

*Powertrain modifications are covered by a Ford Racing/Roush Performance parts limited warranty; Petty's Garage components and installation carry a 36-month, 36,000-mile warranty from Petty's Garage.

Richard Petty and Ford teamed up to build a special edition of the Mustang for the 2014 SEMA show in Las Vegas. Just 143 examples were built by the crew at Petty's Garage, the King's own high-performance speed shop founded in 2008 and operating out of Randleman, North Carolina. The Petty Mustang's were given plenty of performance upgrades from Ford Racing and Rousch Performance. Under the hood is the car's Coyote 5.0 liter V8, which is fitted with a Ford Racing Rousch TVS 2300 Supercharger and cold-air intake, custom engine calibration and a Magnaflow stainless-steel exhaust system to produce 627 horsepower. Power was sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual transmission to custom 20-inch Petty's Garage HRE FlowForm wheels wearing Continental tires.

Modifications to the body included a front fascia custom-designed and made by Petty's garage, who also produced the rear fascia with center-exit exhaust opening and prominent NASCAR-inspired rear spoiler. The modifications continued to the interior, with custom-embroidered head rests, floor mats and Richard Petty's own signature on the dash.

This particular example is one of 43 Mustangs built with the Stage II option package, which adds special two-tone paint that recreates the SEMA show car's combination of pearlized Ford Tuxedo Black over Petty Blue blended with crushed and tumbled glass; Petty's famous number 43 ghosted into the hood and C-pillars. The HRE wheel rims and Wilwood disc brake calipers, in Petty Blue, are also part of the Stage II package.
