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.
