Ford produces one-off US Air Force Thunderbirds Edition - 2014 Ford Mustang GT

Ford Motor has produced a new one-of-a-kind Mustang model - the US Air Force Thunderbirds Edition 2014 Ford Mustang GT - which has been donated for charity by the automaker; and will be auctioned at the Experimental Air Association (EAA) AirVenture show in Oshkosh, Wis., on August 1.

The proceeds of the auction of the 2014 Ford Mustang GT will go to EAA Young Eagles organisation's program, under which free introductory flights are provided for children who are interested in aviation. The program has provided free introductory flights to over 1.6 million youngsters since 1992.

The unique 2014 Ford Mustang GT is the fifth one-off U. S. Air Force Thunderbirds Edition manufactured by Ford. This edition of the Mustang - featuring a red, white, and blue paint scheme - boasts an exterior design which has been inspired by the 60th anniversary of the U. S. Air Force Thunderbirds, the world's fastest multijet flight demonstration team.

With Ford having set a precedent of decorating one Mustang for the occasion of the big general-aviation air show, generally with a military theme, Ford Motor's board member Edsel B. Ford II said that the automaker also celebrates the qualities of "dedication and excellence" which are displayed by the US Air Force Thunderbirds.

About the attractive new 2014 US Air Force Thunderbirds Edition Mustang, Edsel B. Ford II said: "We've captured the recognizable symbols of their stature and paired it with the innovation our Ford design and engineering teams build into all of our products."
