For those who didn’t know, Ford builds out some high-quality tribute Mustangs to auction for the Experimental Aircraft Association, a community of aviation enthusiasts who support recreational flying. In this case, Ford tricked out this P-51D-inspired build to garner support for the EAA’s youth education programs which will surely attract quite a bit of eyes, possibly opening some wallets in the process.

Dubbed “Ole Yeller” this Shelby GT350 is a race-ready yellow jacket of a car that Ford claims is street legal. The color inspiration comes from the P-51D Mustang fighter plane, a single-seat fighter and bomber flown mainly in WWII and the Korean War. The car houses the same 5.2-liter V-8 engine pushing out over 500hp and 429 lb-ft or torque but the real story here is the appearance. It features stylish green accents in addition to the paint job which pays homage to the fighter plane that still holds the American coast-to-coast speed record for propeller planes. The P-51 is the ninth car Ford put together for the EAA and is slated to hit the Gathering of Eagles charity event for auction on July 28th in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
