We at Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa are excited to present to you this awesome 1979 Ford Mustang Pace Car. The Indianapolis 500 is one of the most famous races in the world. On May 27th 1979 the Ford Mustang set the pace for this intense race that would become a Rick Mears victory. This car is a special edition that celebrates the Ford Mustang Pace Car.
The Ford Mustang was chosen as the Official Pace Car of the 1979 Indianapolis 500. Ford commemorated this event with a mid-year “Indy 500” Pace Car version (10,478 produced). All were finished in two-tone pewter and black with orange and red graphics. The front end featured a unique front air dam with fog lights, and a full-length cowl type hood scoop, while the rear end got the new for 1979 rear spoiler (all of these additions carried over to both the 1980 and 1981 Cobra). The black interior featured Recaro seats with patterned black and white inserts. Available were the 2.3 L (140 cu in) four-cylinder Turbo with mandatory four-speed manual transmission or the 4.95 L (302 cu in) V8 with either an overdrive 4-speed manual or three-speed automatic transmission. The production cars included a sunroof. However, the three actual pace cars were fitted with a T-top by Cars & Concepts of Brighton, MI. The removable panel roof option would not become an available option until the 1981 model year.
This Mustang is fitted with a 5.0L 302 cubic inch V8 with a 4-speed manual transmission. The current owner has owned it since 2003 and has replaced the seats, headliner and carpet. The Mustang has dual exhaust conversion with catalytic converters. Options include A/C, AM/FM radio, manual sunroof, power brakes, power steering, seat belts, cloth interior, rally wheels, aluminum/alloy wheels.
