Vaughn Gittin’s RTR-X Mustang Project getting prepped for SEMA debut


We are less than a week away from the 2010 SEMA show where Vaughn Gittin Jr. will debut his latest creation, the RTR-X Mustang.  Vaughn’s retro 1969 RTR-X Mustang is undergoing final paintwork and assembly in preparation for the SEMA show in Las Vegas.  The RTR-X Mustang project is a collaboration between Vaughn and Team Need for Speed who used a 1969 Dynacorn Mustang replacement body shell as a starting point for what they hope will be one mean track and street machine.

Powering the RTR-X Mustang will be the new Ford Racing Boss 302R crate engine which puts out 440 horsepower but Vaughn and his team are hoping for somewhere in the 450-500 horsepower range after some tinkering.

Other goodies found on this retro themed Mustang will be a Ford Racing Boss 302R1 six-speed transmission, Wilwood brakes, 18-inch Work Meister wheels with Falken RT615-K rubber, Art Morrison sub-frame assembly and Motec M800 ECU coupled with a Motec Sport Dash Logger digital display.
