One-off Mustang will be auctioned off for charity in the US
27 July 2009

An aviation-inspired one-off Ford Mustang AV-X10 is to be auctioned off for charity.

The Mustang, nicknamed Dearborn Doll, is being sold to raise money the EAA Young Eagles charity, which offers under-17s a chance to fly aircraft.

Inspired by a World War Two-era P-51 Mustang aircraft, the car is based on a 2010 Mustang GT with a glass roof. Ford Racing supplied the exhaust, handling package and supercharger on this car and it sits an inch lower than the standard Mustang. Power comes from a 543bhp 4.6-litre 24-valve aluminium engine.

The Dearborn Doll is painted in Satin Silver, while a yellow nose and rear wing also feature. The alloy wheels are Shelby's 19-inch models, as seen on the GT500. The wheels are painted in liquid silver, with the tips in yellow, to give a propeller effect.

Inside, there is a Bader leather interior with a worn look, diamond-tucked seat and door inserts, and a unique instrument cluster. Embedded in the roof is the US Air Force Star and Bar logo, while the Dearborn Dolly pin-up girl is painted on the side.

The auction takes place on 30 July at an airshow in America.

  It is a really an innovative thought and if it gets popular then we will see more models. In fact the idea is really cool and it would be great to watch car models inspired by Boeing A380 and 747 airplanes.
