One of the biggest changes coming to the 2015 Ford Mustang is the addition of independent rear-suspension, though it looks like those who pine for the classic solid-rear axle setup will still have an option.
A report from Gas2.org claims that a new body-in white program will be introduced for the Mustang, outfitting the car with a 9″ solid rear axle. A body-in-white car is essentially the shell of a vehicle, which can be purchased and then finished in any way the owner sees fit. The program’s main purpose will be to attract race teams to the car, as a live-rear axle setup is still desirable to many, especially drag racers.
It will also serve up some competition for cross-town rival Chevy and its body-in-white program for the Camaro.
The live-axle Mustang kit is expected to debut at next year’s Performance Racing Industry Show. Once the body-in-white program is up and running, Ford Racing is expected to offer the parts necessary for converting road-going Mustangs to a live-axle setup.
