Citrus Blast Mustang: Patrick Eldridge’s 2007 GT

Stationed in the northeast United States, it’s not easy keeping your ride clean. Between the rapid weather changes, road salt, and roving wild life, having an eye-catching build can be a daunting task. Fellow Pennsylvania resident Patrick Eldridge accepted Mother Nature’s challenge, and built his 2007 GT to not only be a show stopper but also a power grabber. From the full body kit to its underhood performance, this orange and black Pony is a force to be reckoned with. In terms of appearance, he installed a Cervini front bumper, side exhaust system, and taillight conversion kit. He also chose a set of bold black Bullitt wheels for an accented contrast. When it came down to performance, Patrick opted for a set of hot rod camshafts and a performance ring gear and pinion kit.

Complete Overhaul

Cervini’s body kits are well known for exuding style. In the case of Patrick’s GT, the Cervini’s C-Series Front Bumper Kit offers a complete front-end overhaul to transform an early S197 Mustang into an aggressive looking beast. We’re not talking just a bumper cover change either. You’re looking at the bumper, upper and lower grilles, center fog light mounts, the fog lights themselves, trim bezels, and the Running Pony Logo emblem as the cherry on top. The only downside is the kit doesn’t come color matched, so you’ll need a reputable shop to prep and paint after you test fit. Remember that nasty Pennsylvania weather we mentioned? This front bumper is made from durable injection molded urethane, designed to be flexible yet strong enough to retain a fantastic appearance even through daily driving. 

A Seamless Piece to the Puzzle

To perfectly complement his new front end, Patrick opted for the Cervini’s C-Series Side Exit Exhaust system. This kit comes with everything necessary to seamlessly convert a GT Coupe from a rear exit to side exit exhaust. The system is crafted from 2.5” mandrel-bent tubing and adds an intimidating growl to match the aggressive front end. The side skirts and rear valence are made from the same injection molded urethan for durability and best of all, Patrick didn’t have to make any permanent modifications to his Mustang’s body to install.

Dashes of Dark

A solid color wheel works from some builds, but bright orange rims usually don’t. In Patrick’s case, black Bullitt wheels were the answer. Combined with black racing stripes, the Bullitt wheels offset the sharp grabber orange color to add another degree of sinister appeal to a powerful Pony lying in wait. The classic Bullitt style meshes well with this modern rendition of an iconic muscle car. Both the black and machined lip of these Bullitt’s are clear coated to keep rocks and harsh road chemicals from chipping and staining their pristine finish. 

Modern Face, 60s Rumble

We had the honor of seeing Patrick’s dyno results and he’s laying down a healthy 500 HP and 455 ft/lbs of torque. This is partially thanks to the Ford Performance Hot Rod Camshafts. This cam set was designed by Ford engineers to do three specific things. The first is to deliver a hot rod inspired lopey idle and secondly, to do so on an otherwise stock valvetrain. That’s right, these camshafts can be added without the need for new springs, followers or lash adjusters. The third benefit of these performance cams would be the increased horsepower. Simply combined with a cold air intake and long tube headers, a 30 HP gain is a reasonable expectation. Patrick’s 2007 GT is sporting more than just simple bolt-ons and we have zero doubt that he commands attention wherever he goes.
