The Ford Thunderbird is back, but they just made one.

(Fox News) – The Ford today unveiled a custom Mustang GT to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds precision flying team.

The coupe carries VIN 0001 as the first 2014 Mustang off the line, and features a
glass roof and red, white and blue paint scheme festooned with insignia inspired
from the Thunderbird’s F-16 Falcon fighter jets.

A unique wide body kit with appropriately large wing by TS Designs, enormous 22-
inch Forgiato wheels and puddle lamps that project a beam in the shape of an
airplane round out the exterior modifications.

Recaro seats and a Ford Racing package including a supercharger for the 5.0-liter
V8, suspension and Brembo brakes bring the performance of the two-seat ‘Stang
closer to Air Force spec.

The car will be auctioned off at the annual EAA AirVenture Oshkosh air show on
August 1st with all proceeds going toward the EAA Young Eagles organization,
which provides free first flights in small aircraft to children interested in aviation.

The Thunderbirds Mustang is the latest in a series Ford has built to support the program,
