Ford Mustang Cobra
78th Indy 500
May 29, 1994

1994 saw a major redesign for the Ford Mustang, as well as Mustang's return to Indianapolis.  The all-new 1994 Mustang Cobra convertible became the third Mustang to pace the Indy 500.

The 94 Mustang was powered by a modified version of Ford's 5.0L V-8 engine that produced 240 horsepower.  1963 Indy winner Parnelli Jones was chosen to drive the pace car.

1000 replicas of the red-and-tan convertible were produced, along with a replica of the Official Truck of the Indy 500, the Ford F-150 Lightning.
