GALPIN AUTO SPORTS CELEBRATES 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF FORD MUSTANG AT 2014 SEMA SHOW
- Galpin Auto Sports celebrates golden anniversary of Ford Mustang production with modified all-new pony car featuring gold theme
- Gold powder-coated Whipple supercharger enhances output of 5.0-liter V8 engine to 725 horsepower
- Custom LED headlights give the face of Mustang a whole new look
The tuning arm of the largest Ford dealer in the United States, Galpin Auto Sports, also known as GAS, is paying tribute to the long history of Ford Mustang with a customized car debuting at the 2014 Specialty Equipment Market Association show. The 2015 GAS Mustang carries a golden anniversary concept to celebrate the car’s 50 years of continuous production.
GAS began by giving the all-new Mustang a facelift, borrowing styling elements found elsewhere in the car. The front fascia is restyled to match the three strakes found in the factory headlights. New headlights have been created that integrate LED turn signals and turn on in sequence – just like the rear turn signals. A carbon fiber front splitter and rocker panels have been installed, as well as a more aggressive rear diffuser.
Open the hood to find a Whipple supercharger sitting atop the 5.0-liter Coyote V8. This is no off-the-shelf unit though; it’s been custom powder-coated to appear gold. A glass window integrated into the hood is designed to show off the engine, but the GAS Mustang is not just about looks. The car produces an astounding 725 horsepower. Suspension components from Steeda and an all-new exhaust from Magnaflow round out the mechanical enhancements.
“We like the black and gold idea, and really wanted to get the color as close to 24-carat gold as possible,” said Brandon Boeckmann, GAS operations manager. The 20-inch wheels, side sills, brake calipers and badging are all finished in gold. Inside, everything that is normally chrome or metallic has either been blacked-out or given the Midas touch. The Recaro seats are covered with a fabric finished in black and gold, and the headliner is black microsuede. The exterior is finished in paint that may appear black, but on further inspection is filled with gold metallic flecks.
The 2015 GAS Ford Mustang will be on display in the expansive 20,000-square-foot Ford booth at the 2014 SEMA show taking place at Las Vegas Convention Center, Nov. 4-7

Ford Motor Company is bringing performance to the halls of the 2014 Specialty Equipment Market Association show, performance that can be summed up in one name – Mustang.
Working with top builders including Galpin Auto Sports, Petty’s Garage, MRT and many others, Ford will showcase over a dozen custom Mustangs in its 20,000-square-foot booth at Las Vegas Convention Center, Nov. 4-7, with even more new pony cars on display around the show floor.
The 2015 Ford Mustang marks a dramatic change in mechanical components for aftermarket companies to work with. The next-generation Mustang includes an all-new independent rear suspension and new multilink front suspension that is being tweaked by Roush, Steeda and others. Expect to see plenty of 5.0-liter V8s roaring around SEMA, but the spotlight will be on the all-new 2.3-liter EcoBoost® four-cylinder engine, which provides a whole new platform for experienced turbocharging specialists. With 310 horsepower and 320 lb.-ft. of torque, the 2.3-liter EcoBoost makes plenty of power from the factory, but there’s much more potential for performance. Several tuners will be on hand with high-powered versions of the new turbo four-cylinder from Ford. PETTYS_GARAGE_SEMA_S550 Petty’s Garage will be bringing a Mustang with a purpose – a Roush supercharged V8 model wearing Richard Petty’s famous blue paint and a discrete No. 43, Petty’s car number in his NASCAR days. The car will be auctioned by Barrett-Jackson with proceeds benefiting Victory Junction, which is dedicated to helping chronically ill children attend summer camp.
SEMA_PRESS_IMG_MUSTANG_2014 Galpin Auto Sports is celebrating 50 years of Mustang with a golden anniversary car. This 2015 Mustang features restyled front and rear fascia with a gold motif. The car wears metallic gold-flecked black paint and gold badges, and features interior trim work and special wheel calipers. To top it all off, a gold powder-coated Whipple supercharger helps the 5.0-liter V8 develop 725 horsepower.
For fans of Formula DRIFT, Vaughn Gittin Jr. will put on a show with his heavily modified 2014 Ford Mustang RTR at the three-acre Ford Out Front motorsports and display venue.
Enthusiasts at the 2014 SEMA show should expect to see no shortage of just how much tuning potential exists in the all-new Ford Mustang.
