Ford and Hennessey Performance: Rebuilding a Mustang GT in Need | Ford In Your Community | Ford

  • Published on Sep 6, 2019
  • Wesley Ryan loved his 1993 Mustang GT but had to make a sacrifice when his wife had ovarian cancer. He sold the car 17 years ago to pay for treatment. In 2017, his son found the car and rebought it for his father. Bill Ford heard about this story and knew he had to do something. Ford teams up with Hennessey Performance to rebuild the Mustang.

    Ford made some money when they sold me an ‘18 Mustang GT. It’s good to know a little tiny bit of that went into rebuilding this car.

    Beautiful story, Hey ummm my 5.0 has been sitting for years now too because of family and life, can i get a rebuilt too. I think Ford should have a rebuild plan for existing owners who don't want a new car but want to rebuild the beautiful mustang they already own, idk just a thought. Congrats again Ryan family.....

    😥😥😥My husband had a car like that, he loved it so so much, he had to sell it because of financial issues... he was devastated, so I feel for the guy... I feel happy he was reunited with his car, man a round of applause for the men who give up things that they love because they rather put their families first.

    What ever happened to that Mustang 5.0 sound? When you heard it you knew! I miss that sound. Haven't heard an original in many year's. Would be nice to hear it Again. That 302 5.0 and flowmasters mix were a beauty.

    In 2003 I was 18 years old stationed in Hawaii. My first car I bought there was a 2003 Ford Focus. Till this day I still drive it. My wife recently told me "you need to buy a new car"... I bought a 2017 Ford Focus. I still drive the old one though. ;)

      Thanks Ford, I Pray that your heart felt story and what you did to help a family in need, will reach many business organizations, even to everyday persons, to reach out
      And help uplift someone, I just heard in my doctors office how he my Doctor of 19 years, had teamed up with a Surgeon and they have helped put people back on their feet, that due to back injuries, we’re unable to work, and had no quality of life,. And the insurance industry doesn’t help, I love Doctors, we are “Doctors First “ My Doctor is that, I was one of the most fortunate patients to receive
      Lower disc surgery, after 11 months in bed unable to walk, and being on all the most potent pain meds, Surgery was a total success, I walked out of hospital that day, and never to this day ever took another pain pill. God is Awesome,
