What’s That? Check Out The Ford V-10 Mustang!

This idea has some Ford Mustang enthusiasts doing a double take. It seems that Ford thought it would be a good idea to drop a short deck all aluminum modular V-10 into a Mustang. Sweet! Amid rumors that this was going to occur, a few of these spicy little numbers have been spotted on the street. However, don’t go getting your hopes us that this will be standard fare from the Ford production plants. This Mustang and the handful of others that have been similarly modified about the globe are just Ford dipping its toe in the water.

What’s That? Check Out The Ford V-10 Mustang!. It should be noted that the 5.8 V-10 that is causing such hubbub is not the same tall deck cast iron 6.8 V-10 that sits in the Excursions and Super Duty pickups. This engine is brand spanking new, resembling a 4.6 Cobra short block. To be more to the point, this Ford V-10 Mustang engine is a good 60 pounds lighter than its cousin, the 5.4 that is in the 2000 Cobra R… Therefore, it stands to reason that Ford would drop this nifty little V-10 into a 1999 GT and the result would be whispers behind the drawing room door referring to this “frakencar” as the Boss 351.

This low budget project was an experiment in power and creativity. It was an exercise in wing stretching for Ford as they pulled out all the stops and played a game of “let’s see what happens when we do this.” However, what resulted is a sleek, powerful, albeit gas guzzling hunk of machine. Moreover, the clincher that really got the team? The sound of that V-10 purring. Grrrr!
