The one-off SR-71 Mustang, built in cooperation with Ford, Roush and Shelby, was auctioned off earlier today for $375,000. The auction raised money for the EAA’s Young Eagles Program.

The SR-71 Mustang was built at Roush’s facility in Livonia, Michigan and takes inspiration from the Lockheed Martin SR-71 Blackbird that took its first flight in 1964, the same year as the introduction of the Mustang. The car has several unique features including a Whipple supercharger, custom Recaro racing seats, a custom racing steering wheel and an integrated roll cage.

SR-71 Mustang Features:

o All-new aluminum block 5.0-lite Ti-VCT V8 engine with a 2.3-liter Whipple Twin Screw Supercharger with Ford Racing calibration and Roush intake
o Ford Racing Handling Pack
o Ford Racing tuned exhaust and tips
o SVT Track Pack wheels in custom paint (19-inch in front, 20-inch in rear)
o Glass roof with unique graphic treatment
o Unique non-production matte and silver exterior paint treatment with SR-71 cues
o Custom Recaro race seats featuring embroidered signatures of Jack Roush and Carroll Shelby
o Custom racing steering wheel
o Rear seat removed to accentuate cockpit environment
o Ford Racing performance gauge cluster
o Modified navigation screen and instrument cluster
o Roll cage
o Custom IP badging, sill plates and floor mats

  • I didn’t know these things had a glass / panoramic roof! I guess that’s befitting it being an SR-71 version so you can check out the ‘skies’ while you cruise at altitude.

    Impressive sale none the less and it’s awesome that many of these parts will come out of Ford racing directly making them ‘off the shelf’ factory backed parts.
