This is the type of thing that you see Ford doing quite often: creating a special one-off car to be raffled for a major charity. This time it’s a one-off Kona Blue Mustang Bullitt for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation – a very worthy cause. At only $10 per ticket, and with only 60,000 tickets, the chances are very good. We encourage you to support this cause – and we have ourselves. A lucky winner will be driving this unique Bullitt in November. And kudos to Ford!
Be sure to see our Ford Mustang Bullitt Pinterest Board, with 116 Pins, part of the Driving Enthusiast Pinterest Board site with over 21,000 Pins! We’ve built this Pinterest site for the very long term… one day the Bullitt Mustangs will be highly collectible and the Driving Enthusiast sites will serve as an invaluable reference.

Ford Is Raffling a One-of-a-Kind Kona Blue Mustang Bullitt to Help Find a Cure for Juvenile Diabetes
DEARBORN, Mich., Aug. 17, 2018 – 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. And like the original one-of-a-kind 1968 Mustang fastback from the classic thriller “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.
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 at www.onecause.com/jdrfbullitt until Nov. 8; online orders end Nov. 9.
