Featured on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by ClassicCars.com, is this 2021 Ford Mustang NASCAR Cup Series race car.
This Cup Series Mustang was built as a backup for NASCAR driver Kevin Harvick but was not raced. The exterior is outfitted in Mobile 1 race livery with extensive sponsorship decals, S550 Mustang-style lighting, and plexiglass windows.
It rides on black wheels with Goodyear Eagle race tires featuring yellow sidewall lettering.
“The cockpit is fitted with a tubular roll cage, an adjustable racing bucket seat, and a Sabelt harness,” the listing states. “Equipment includes dash-mounted controls for the starter, ignition, and other vehicle systems, along with a fire suppression system, a detachable steering wheel, window nets, and an 18-gallon aluminum fuel cell.”
This Cup Series car has 741 horsepower small-block Chevrolet V8 engine with MSD ignition components. The engine is paired with a Rankin four-speed manual transmission with straight-cut gears, and a Ford nine-inch rear end with 3.22:1 gearing. The suspension has Penske shock absorbers.
As a dedicated race vehicle, this Mustang is not street-legal and does not come with a title. This Cup Series race car is offered strictly as a race vehicle without street-legal equipment. The mileage on the chassis is unknown.
