Team Mustang Girls in Bullrun Rally


Recommended Posts

Couple of young girls from down near Charleston S.C. are competing in the up coming Bullrun Rally Race with their 1965 Mustang powered by a Pink 351W-4V. They have been chosen and will race but could use some support. They have a raffle going to raise funds if anybody is interested in helping. Go here if you interested: http://www.stangtv.c...-bullrun-entry/ Here's their facebook page with more pictures: https://www.facebook...eamMustangGirls 292761_503981612945890_275675517_n-1.jpg

Damn, good for them! I would love to face book and friend them to keep tabs, but I do not need the wife thinking I am cheating on her ( ha, ha ) I think it is so cool that they are doing it in a '65. Looks like something I would do with mine if funds and time allowed me too. I hope they make it and wish them the best of luck.

The Team Mustang Girl's Bullrun Rally car is ready to race in this year's event ( http://www.bullrun.com/ ). Their 1965 Mustang recently got a "new" 20-year old 351 Winsor engine from an old Ford Truck, painted it Pink and is ready to rock. The high-end teams fly to the race in first class seating and have their cars shipped. The Team Mustang Girls, led by Courtney Barber (who in real life, works in a paint and body shop), have to drive their Mustang to and from the starting and ending rally points and that takes a lot of gas.

 

Last year's race started in Los Angles, went up and down the western states, and back to L.A. The ladies put over 8000 miles on the classic Mustang (on which Courtney did the paint and bodywork) driving to the rally and then back home on the east coast near Charleston S.C. At lot of people want to donate items but you can only use so much tire shine and detail spray.

 

This year's rally begins in Montreal, Canada and ends a week later in New Orleans, La. The Bullrun Rally attracts a number of celebrities as well as many Ferrari, Aston Martin, Porsche, Corvette, BMW, Lotus, Nissan GT-R, Shelby, Lotus and other vehicles with their drivers.

 

Team Mustang GIrls really need gas money for their 1965 Mustang and have set up a raffle to raise it. If you want to give their raffle a shot go here: (http://teammustanggi...com/raffle.html) The girls were recently at a local car show and selling off Mustang pieces, parts and raffle tickets to raise funds. Enjoy a few pic's below.

Dang! My daughter needs that engine for her '64 1/2.....

 

 

Cool looking 'stang. Was it a 260-2V car?

 

The car the Team Mustang Girls are using was originally a inline-six which finally gave up the ghost last year. They've done a lot of work on it now converting it over to a 351W-4V, Granada disk brakes, 9" rearend, beefed up suspension, and etc. Like I said, they're operating on a shoe-string budget and drive the car to the race and back while the other teams with high-end cars are trailered while they fly. Talked to Courtney yesterday and she actually has more raffle prizes donated than tickets sold so far.

 

Here's a pic of her puppy riding in the 'Stang:

Yes, and still is, it is a double "F" code car (Dearborn assembly, 260 CI 2V). Most all original that was totally restored/rebuilt. She wanted a copy of the one Playboy gave to Donna Michelle in 1964 for her winning Playmate of the Year, this is an almost exact copy. Great picture of the doggie, my daughter would appreciate that too, I'll send it to her. Got to buy some tickets, and I'll tell my friends to as well. Thanks, and good luck to the girls!

Had a buddy in high school in 1969 who got a used 1967 Mustang Coupe that was pink with a black vinyl roof. Don't think that was a stock color for 1967 but we gave him such a hard time about the "pink" car that within two weeks he got a Earl Scribe $29.99 dark green paint job. Saw him at our 40th reunion a few years ago and we all got a big laugh with me commenting about what it'd probably be worth today giving him the last laugh if he had kept it.

In '67 they had two pinks for Mustangs, one was a special order color, Playmate Pink (like my daughter's car's color), and a standard order book color, Dusk Rose. You can check here:

So, your friend could have had an original '67 pink car, very rare, and today, very valuable. It has been estimated that if Donna's '64 1/2 'vert could ever be found (it has disappeared off the face of the earth, but an Aussie tried to fake one a while back, he got caught), it would easily be worth $500K, as it was one of one.

Has the Playboy Pink 1969 Shelby GT-500 that went to the Playmate of the year ever turned up?
