The owner of this Mustang was eager to get it back on the strip after making some mods to improve its performance.

“There’s more left in the car with a more aggressive tune and higher boost, but unfortunately the car is only legal to 8.50s and the season’s come to an end,” said the vehicle’s owner and youtube poster.

He continues to say that he believes it’s the world’s fastest pass for a Mustang on a true (synchronized) manual transmission.

This is actually being used for street rod project

This P-51 actually went into a street rod

Next month marks the anniversary of the first time the P-15 Mustang flew. It was developed in response to the North American Aviation by the British Purchasing Commission in 1940 and was used during WWII, the Korean War and other military conflicts.

In 1984, the engine was retired from military use, though civilians have started buying them for automotive projects, just like the one seen in this video.

Ford’s next-gen Mustang Countdown continues with Carroll Shelby Tribute

Ford's next-gen Mustang Countdown continues with Carroll Shelby Tribute

From Ford:

For nearly 50 years, the name Shelby has been synonymous with high-performance Ford Mustangs. When Mustang first hit the streets in April 1964, it was stylish, affordable and fun to drive. But it wasn’t until Carroll Shelby revealed the first GT350 early the next year that Mustang really developed a hard-core performance reputation. With drivers like world champion Sterling Moss at the wheel, Mustang soon had the on-track credibility to match its go-fast looks.

As the standard Mustangs got faster and more powerful, Carroll Shelby and his team kept ahead of the pack with later GT350s, the GT500 and GT500KR “King of the Road.” Prior to his death in 2012, Shelby remained involved with high-performance Mustangs including the current 200 mph, 662-horsepower Shelby GT500.
