Galpin Widebody Mustang Convertible

Galpin Auto Sports has built quite a few widebody Mustangs over the last couple of years, starting with the Shelby GT500 that debuted at SEMA in 2010. Since then they’ve debuted more widebody Mustangs at SEMA including the Boss 302-X and a one-off Shelby GT500 Super Snake, and they also worked with specialty manufacturer SPX to create a custom Mustang inspired by the Boss 429 that was auctioned off for charity at Barrett-Jackson earlier this year. Each car has been impressive in its own way, but they all have one thing in common – they’re coupes.

Recently Galpin Auto Sports decided to take on their first widebody Mustang convertible, the result of which you see here. The hand-built steel fenders stretch the width of the car by a full nine inches, allowing for massive Forgiato 3-piece wheels with wide Pirelli tires (295/25ZR-21 front and 335/25ZR-22 rear). GAS also fitted the Mustang GT with a complete Ford Racing suspension system, Magnaflow quad-tip exhaust system, Wilwood 14-inch cross-drilled and slotted brakes front and rear and a custom Burgundy and Black leather interior.

So who’s the lucky new owner of this widebody 2012 Mustang Convertible? Thomas duPont, co-founder of the dupont Registry, recently added the car to his already impressive collection of sports cars.
