Since 2008, Ford has created a custom, aviation-themed vehicle for the annual EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, and selling them at a charity auction during the event has raised over $3 million.
The Blue Oval is already teasing this year's custom machine – the Eagle Squadron Mustang GT. It pays tribute to the American volunteers who joined Britain's Royal Air Force during World War II. For fight-plane-like power, Ford Performance gives the 5.0-liter V8 a supercharger that boosts the output to 700-horsepower (522 kW). A carbon fiber widebody kit adds a meaner look, too.
With the first look at Ford's latest, plane-inspired custom Mustang, it's the perfect opportunity to check out this program's evolution over the years and see some fascinating one-offs.
