Ford to Raffle off Kona Blue Bullitt Mustang For Diabetes Benefit
Newly-converted Ford Mustang Bullitt raffle was first announced at Woodward Dream Cruise in Detroit and runs through Nov. 9.
Ford is turning its iconic Dark Highland Green Mustang Bullitt Kona Blue to help benefit Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, and one lucky raffle participant will drive home in this one-of-a-kind Mustang.
Ford is revealing the Kona Blue Mustang Bullitt today at the 2018 Woodward Dream Cruise, where Ford and JDRF start selling up to 60,000 raffle tickets at $10 each. The raffle ends Nov. 9. A winner will be selected Nov. 13.
The JDRF Mustang Bullitt comes with unique gray wheels, and its Kona Blue exterior is carried inside with blue cabin stitching. It features the 2019 Mustang Bullitt’s high-performance add-ons – including the performance-tuned 5.0-liter V8 churning out 480 horsepower for a top-end speed of 163 mph. Not bad considering the base model Mustang GT starts off with 460 HP.
And like the original one-of-a-kind 1968 Mustang fastback from the classic 1968 thriller film Bullitt, which also is making an appearance at the Woodward Dream Cruise, the newest model features minimal badging, a blacked-out grille and special white cue ball shifter. Sure, it may not be the Highland Green color we all know and love, but this 2019 Mustang Bullitt is no less iconic. Just like the original, it is truly one-of-a-kind.
The JDRF Kona Blue Mustang Bullitt will be on display starting at 2 p.m. today at the Ford Media Club House at Kruse and Muer, 28028 Woodward Ave., in Royal Oak. It also will be on display Saturday at Mustang Alley, at the intersection of 9 Mile and Woodward Avenue in Ferndale. JDRF raffle tickets are available for purchase at both locations.
Raffle tickets also are available online here until November 8; online orders end November 9.
