Back in June we reported on Ford's plan to offer Mustang body-in-white kits to racers in the fall. So as the leaves begin to change, word comes down from Ford Racing spokesman Jesse Kershaw that the order books are now open for several different competition kits. The body-in-white is available for just $4,995, but in addition to the body, Ford is also offering interior, exterior, seat and roll cage kits. Ford is keeping costs down by limiting the ordering period to eight weeks, and once the ordering period closes on November 15, Ford will build all the bodies in a batch at FoMoCo's Flat Rock, MI plant with deliveries beginning in the first quarter of 2010. Currently Ford is planning to offer the kits on an annual basis to licensed competitors and you can get all the details in the press release below the fold.
Ford Racing offers 2010 Mustang Competition Kits
The 2008 Cobra Jet has lit up the drag racing world, appearing on magazine covers and at drag strips across the country. Already all 2010 Cobra Jet's are spoken for, but the demand for a racer-friendly Competition Kit has been high.
Ford Racing is committed to helping racers get late-model Mustangs out on the track. By pre-ordering and minimizing our inventory costs we are able to offer the best pricing possible on Mustang Competition Kits.
These industry-first kits greatly reduce the complexity and build time typically associated with a body- in-white build. For little more than the competition is offering the body shell alone, the Mustang Competition Kits include interior, exterior (including glass), and seats. Cobra Jet power-train components are also available through the Ford Racing catalog. For full details on what is included in the Mustang Competition Kits please visit fordracingparts.com.
