Craigslist: Jet-powered ’67 Ford Mustang

“Serious Inquiries Only”

I hate when people write that in their ads, but in this case I am willing to make an exception. No one who is not serious should not operate anything jet-powered. Period. Furthermore, this ad should have said “Crazy people with a death wish only, please”

Find out why after the jump..

This is the cockpit. In my mind, death is certain. This also maybe the reason why the car is for sale. Any potential buyer should inspect the seat for remnants of burned skin which belong to the previous owner.

From the ad:

“Krispy Kritter” Jet Engine is a Westinghouse 10,000 HP J34. Vehicle is a 1967 Mustang. Ran 308 mph for 1/4 mile. Complete but not running. Serious Inquiries Only. Call 412 766-XXXX between 8am and 6pm. No E-Mails. $30,000 or OBO

Brief and to the point.

I wonder how it handles.

Two parachutes and roll cage should keep you pinned in until well done.

    This would be fun to roll out to a traffic light during morning commute. Anyone behind me yet?

    I'd be interested. But, I don't want to be this guy:

      That right there is the best .gif I have ever seen.

    That is one spectacularly good idea, so long as self preservation isn't much of a priority. The good thing is that this could be done with so little alteration of the bodywork. At least, before the inevitable wipe out.

    There is no way that would go 308mph in a quarter mile. I doubt it would go that fast period without taking flight. Stock 60s Mustang aerodynamics go to shit before 200mph is reached.

    • jeepjeff

      It might have been flying through the air at 308mph at a point on the sphere centered on its starting point with a radius of 1/4 mile.

    "The car only ran one time at Sportsmans Park S.C. where it took off, like an airplane, at the 300 ft. mark and hit a telephone pole."

    Ran great until it threw a fan blade and shredded the driver.

  • jeepjeff

    Ok, so it isn't running right now, and getting it running is suicidal, as it wouldn't even be safe to run at Bonneville. Who has more than $30,000 in hatred for their HOA?

    Burns? I'd worry more about the engine flying apart, and being shredded by compressor blades.

  • How do you keep the immense intake of that jet engine from sucking the Mustang grille into the works? Air Force guys call that FOD. Look at the scoops on a fighter jet, and from that figure the amount of air that these engines ingest. No way will it inhale through that Mustang grille. That pony would end up sucked into the engine, and into the compressor blades, and the thing would grenade. Nah, I'll pass.

    • jeepjeff

      See rennsport964's comment. Who is sitting next to those blades when it throws one? It might be a quick death.


    I love it! Be great for campfires! Not so much for the tent trailer. But I'd never be able to live with that bloody offset footwell. And where's the gear shifter?



    (Unless you're actually a Pilot, then maybe.)
