It was revealed as a one-off at last year’s SEMA auto show, but now, Petty’s Garage will team up with Ford to do a limited production run of its 627 horsepower show car.

“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.”

Those voices were definitely heard, and now 143 units of the fastback are in the works, and it will come in two versions.

The first version, dubbed “Stage 1, will have loads of custom mods like a modified rear fascia with a race-inspired spoiler and a center-exiting exhaust. Floor mats and Richard Petty’s signature round out the interior tweaks. The whole package rides on custom 20-inch Petty’s Garage HRE FlowForm wheels.

Under the hood, the engine is equipped with a Ford Racing/Rouch supercharger and a cold air intake. It also receives a custom calibration and it affixed to a MagnaFlow exhaust system, upping the power of the 5.0-liter V8 to 627 horsepower.

These will make up the first 100 units while the remaining 43 will be the Stage 2 version, which will have everything the Stage 1 has, but will also include a Petty’s Garage Wilwood big brake upgrade, three-piece forged aluminum wheels, and a custom two-tone paint job.

Anyone wishing to scoop one up can do so by ordering either version from any Ford dealership. The Stage 1’s will start at $62,210 while the Stage 2’s will run $92,210.

Most Ford Mustang Mach-E reservation holders go for extended-range battery
2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E and 2020 Ford Mustang

The Ford Mustang Mach-E is one of the most anticipated new cars of the upcoming year. Treated to a glitzy unveiling at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show, the First Edition of the new electric car sold out in a matter of days. Now we have more information on what the first production cars will look like, and when they will arrive.

The Mach-E First Edition was listed as sold out on Ford's website by the end of November -- shortly after order books opened November 18. Ford finally confirmed that reservations for the First Edition are full, without saying how many First Edition cars it plans to build. Customers can still place reservations for other models. However, as the name implies, First Edition models will roll off the assembly line and into customers' driveways first.

Ford is eager to capitalize on the Mustang Mach-E's popularity by releasing a smaller, more affordable model in the coming years. While development work is on-going, company sources hinted the yet-unnamed car will use Volkswagen parts.

Decision-makers on both sides of the Atlantic are already plotting ways to expand the Mustang family beyond the well-known two-door model and the aforementioned Mach-E crossover, according to Murat Gueler, Ford's chief designer. "Yes, we have already talked about expansion, to some sort of family," he confirmed to British magazine Auto Express.

Ford ruffled more than a few feathers when it decided to call its first purpose-designed electric car the Mustang Mach-E. While some argue it's not worthy of wearing the hallowed Mustang nameplate, its target audience doesn't seem to mind one bit, and one of the five Mach-E variants announced during the model's unveiling is already sold out.

The trim-level hierarchy include five models named Select, Premium, California Route 1, First Edition, and GT, respectively. The Blue Oval's official website notes that every First Edition model has already been spoken for. It sounds like a limited-edition model, and it might be, but Ford chose not to disclose how many units of the model it will make. It might cap production after manufacturing a predetermined number of First Edition variants, or it might build the model for a certain amount of time. We've reached out to the company to learn more, and we'll update this story if we hear back.
