This is one of the car's I'm irked I missed at the Dream Cruise last weekend. It's the Limited Edition Ford "Stallion" Mustang designed by Chip Foose and modified by Unique Performance. About 3,000 of these babies will be built a year starting at $38,000. In addition to the new look, Unique Performance has been tasked with upgrading the performance potential of this pony car. There's a full list of the upgrades at the link, but we like this quote by Doug Hasty, president and CEO of Unique Performance: "We've stiffened the chassis, uncorked the exhaust, tightened the handling, improved the induction and upgraded the stopping power." Additional upgrades, specifically to the engine, are expected to be available in the near future. Could this car turn out to be a real competitor to modified Mustangs from Saleen, Roush and others? If the aforementioned powertrain upgrades come then perhaps this could be the custom Mustang to own in 2006.

      I marvel (and drool) over Chip's designs and have great respect for him as a genuine, caring person, however, I don't see this "Stallion" limited production car as earning a pedestal on a par with the Shelby Cobra. If Chip were given freedom from some of the physical limitations imposed on this makeover by the mass production process, and the monetary limitations of Ford's target market, I think he could certainly have taken this design a few notches higher. The way his career, influence and popularity are growing, I think we will be seeing future projects where he will be given greater freedom to Foosify some truly eyestopping, jawdropping rides! Those rides may have to cost significantly more, but that's not any concern to me- since I can't afford this current Stallion anyway... I'd just love to see what his design brilliance could produce if he had no restrictions to work within. Go Foose!

      Anybody that don't like Chip Foose, can kiss my Oklahoma A$$.

      I take it no one here is a fan of "Overhaulin". Personally I think it looks pretty sweet, but for 38k, I think I'd rather save up for the GT-500.

      I'm not impressed either. Looks kinda like a glossed over redo. Seems to have slipped on the details. Look at the gaps in the grill corners, looks like a mistake! And whats with the driving light holes in the bumper? If they are vents, they should look like air vents! Hopefully the final version will be improved.

      I can't believe Foose is catching so much slack over this car. Chip Foose "Designed" the car. If you have issues with the quality of the work, look no further than Unique Performance. Foose put the car on paper, perhaps made the wheels (which look awesome by the way), but it was up to Unique Performance to keep the "quality" up to par. I only make that point as everyone is on Chip's case and have moved on to dissing his show (which kicks Boyd Coddington's whiny little a$$). I just wish they wouldn't reveal what was going on BEFORE they show the car. Totally anti-climatic to me. Oh well... I think the car looks sweet and if it runs well, then it's well cheaper than a Saleen. Probably looks better in person too.

      #8 IS A PHONY POST AND WAS NOT SUBMITTED BY THE REAL iQuack. APPARENTLY, ANYONE CAN USE WHATEVER NAME THEY CHOOSE TO POST COMMENTS SO LONG AS THERE'S ANY EMAIL ADDRESS TO CONFIRM THE POST. THIS MAKES ID THEFT EASY. IT WOULD BE A BIG HELP IF DUPLICATE NAMES COULD BE BLOCKED. AS IS IS NOW, ANYONE CAN EASILY ESTABLISH MULTIPLE EMAIL ADDRESSES, THEN USE ANOTHER PERSON'S NAME BECAUSE ONE NAME ISN'T TIED TO ONLY ONE EMAIL CONFIRMATION ADDRESS. BE WARNED! iQuack (the authentic one)

      yeah, I can't afford one either...

      I love Chip Foose, Overhaulin, and I think this car is great! I wasn't really a Ford fan until after watching Chip have his way with this one. Now, I'm seriously thinking about getting one of these for a couple of reasons. Chip Foose's name, the limited production of a great car and name, investment value, and it is "hot". Does anyone feel Chip Foose is to the "Stallion" as Carroll Shelby was to the "Cobra" when it first came out? If so, is anyone thinking what I'm thinking? ...

      Foose Builds Incredible Cars and this is just one more to add to his list.. Great Work Chip!

      Jaymez So if your buddy or a family relative set you up and Foose and his crew completely upgraded you car the way you might like it (it's the reason why they ask the insider things about what your intrests are), you would be pissed at the guys who upgraded you car and not the person who set you up? I guess surprise parties for you must be pretty violent.

      Practically every Overhaulin'"victim" I've ever seen has been happy to the point of tears when they saw the result! Most of them have big dreams for their car, but no means to accomplish them - so they're more than happy with any help they can get. The fact they're "left with" a Chip Foose designed one-off worth a small fortune is nothing to get pissed about. If you don't like it, sell it on eBay and use the proceeds to buy one you like - plus change. I LOVE that show. The only thing I'd be pissed about if they Overhauled me - is I don't have anything worthy of Overhauling at the moment!
