Galpin and SPX team up with Barrett-Jackson, creating one-off Mustang to be sold for charity

Galpin & SPX Widebody Mustang

Coachbuilders Galpin Auto Sports and specialty manufacturer SPX teamed up with Barrett-Jackson to create a special edition of the Ford Mustang that’s inspired by the original 1969 Boss 429.

Featuring a custom built all-metal widebody kit, the special edition Mustang is a whopping nine inches wider than the stock Mustang. To fill in the extra space in the wheel wells, massive three-piece Forgiato GTR wheels were fitted with special Pirelli tires.

The custom work also goes inside with red suede and black leather trim, a suede headliner, a special 1000-watt JL Audio system and much more.

The Mustang’s 5.0L V8 also gets a Ford Racing supercharger that boosts power to 700-hp.

The car is slated to be put up for display at Barrett-Jackson’s Las Vegas auction and SEMA before going up for auction at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale. All proceeds will go to the St. Jude center for pediatric cancer and disease research and treatment.

“It is important to Barrett-Jackson to be able to provide help and support to charities like St. Jude,” said Steve Davis, President of Barrett-Jackson. “It is our goal to offer as many charitable opportunities as possible at our auctions and recognize those in need. It is truly an honor to be a part of the efforts of St. Jude to help children and their families by providing a memorable experience.”
