Ford has built a one-off Mustang Bullitt in BLUE and is now raffling it to raise up to $60,000 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).
Instead of the iconic Dark Highland Green (or the Shadow Black alternative that few are expected to option), the JDRF Mustang Bullitt is finished in Kona Blue metallic and comes with bespoke grey wheels.
The blue exterior theme is carried through inside: the black leather seats and dashboard are stitched with blue thread.
The special Mustang is the star of Ford’s stand at the 2018 Woodward Dream Cruise; it’s on show at the Ford Media Club House at Kruse and Muer, Woodward Avenue in Royal Oak. There, visitors can buy a ticket for the raffle, for $10 a go.
Bullitt comes in two colors: Dark Highland Green or Shadow Black —except for this one.

Ford will later move the JDRF Mustang Bullitt to Mustang Alley at the intersection of 9 Mile and Woodward Avenue in Ferndale.
But although it has a cool new blue paint job, the Mustang Bullitt is unchanged beneath the surface. Which means the 5.0-litre V8 still puts out 480hp, for a top speed of 163mph.
It has the same minimal badging too, and Ford has retained both the blacked-out grille and, of course, the white cue ball gear shifter.
The raffle will close on November 9th. The winner will be selected on November 13th.
