That's great. I'll have a reason to watch the beginning of the race now.

I wonder if they are going to sticker up that bad boy! If they do there could be some replica's in the pipeline.:badgrin:

Maybe the guys in Indiana should get a couple while they are at it and have a Mustang Pace Car for Indy. That would be a first in how many years? Since 1979. Or has there been one since then?:shock:

According to the news out of Dearborn, MI, the Bullitt pace will have the appropriate stickers indicating official pace car. Here is the press release:




DEARBORN, Mich., Nov. 12— Two of Ford’s hottest products for 2008 – the Mustang Bullitt and the Ford F-150 Foose Edition - have been selected to pace the three Ford Championship Weekend NASCAR races at Homestead-Miami Speedway Nov. 16-18.

The Mustang Bullitt, unveiled for media last week in San Francisco, will pace the Ford 400 NASCAR Nextel Cup finale, and the Ford 300 NASCAR Busch Series finale. The F-150 Foose Edition will pace the season-ending Ford 200 Craftsman Truck event.

“Ford Championship Weekend, with big crowds and a national TV audience, is a tremendous opportunity to showcase Ford’s great products,” said Jamie Allison, manager, Ford Performance Group. “And the Bullitt and F-150 Foose Edition are certainly two of the most anticipated high-performance products from Ford coming for 2008.”

The Mustang Bullitt returns to the streets in 2008, blending the latest in Ford Racing technology with the best Mustang ever. The classic nameplate returns to wow enthusiasts with a blend of high performance, handling and the power that is expected from Mustang.

The latest version of the Bullitt will, of course, be Highland Green, true to the original car in the 1968 “Bullitt” movie. It will feature a unique black mesh grille and special interior touches, and will deliver 315 horsepower out of the 4.6-liter, 3-valve, SOHC V-8.
“Ford Racing supplied the parts packs for this car, complete with a Ford Racing pedigree,” said Allison. “Many of the suspension and powertrain components were inspired by the development of the championship-winning Mustang FR500C race car, so it features our latest technology. This whole effort was a great collaboration between Team Mustang and the engineers at the Ford Racing Performance Group.”

The Ford F-150 Foose Edition is the ultimate street tough F-150, as noted hot rod designer Chip Foose, star of TV’s “Overhaulin’” put his design stamp on America’s favorite pickup truck. Foose’s design lowers the truck in the boulevard-spirit, while maintaining the Ford F-150’s Built Ford Tough heritage.

The 2008 F-F150 Foose Edition is the most powerful half-ton truck on the market, with a supercharged 5.4-liter V-8 delivering 450 horsepower and 500 lbs.-ft. of torque.

The Foose Edition F-150 was first discussed at the 2006 Specialty Equipment Marketing Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas, and one year later it is a reality.

Foose himself will climb behind the wheel of the F-150 Friday evening as the celebrity pace truck driver for the Ford 200 Craftsman Truck finale.

“The F-150 Foose Edition is one more example of Ford’s ‘go-fast’ process to bring unique niche vehicles to the marketplace,” said Allison.

“It’s the same process that brought forth the Shelby GT500 and next year’s Shelby King of the Road.

“We always select some of our every best production vehicles to pace the Ford Championship Weekend,” added Allison. “When you think about the performance that’s needed to pace NASCAR race cars on track, the Bullitt and the F-150 Foose Edition are the type of vehicles you need.”

Each of the pace vehicles have been equipped for their pace car duties with special decal packages and light bars.

Despite what it says in the press release, the Marketing folks told the group at AAI that they negotiated with NASCAR to keep the extraneous decals off so as to not spoil the low-key appearance.

Hopefully that will stick (or not stick, as the case may be).

Now, is there going to be a public version of the same For Sale with the decal package? I'm just in the sell anything they want mode for Ford. Get those numbers spooled up!

So, was there a package offered to the public, similar to the 79 shown in the background? I'm guessing that the KR will do duty at Indy...
