Most race cars that wind up on eBay have long since retired from the racing world. Most of the time they are sold as rolling chassis or incomplete cars, waiting for the next owner to finish the job - but not this car.



Found on eBay this week is the Rehagen Racing Mustang, which has been racing (and winning) since the 2008 season, and it still has one race to go!

The #59 car, driven by Dean Martin and Ken Wilden, is currently leading the Koni Challenge by eighteen points, with one race left to go. Obviously, the car won’t be sold until that last race happens at VIR on October 4th. The Rehagen car is built on an in-house RR500C chassis and powered by a 5.0 “CAMMER” engine from an FR500C. This 450 horsepower modular motor has helped power Ford through numerous manufacturer and racing championships.







The car originally cost $125,000 brand new, which explains the current price for this 2008 model. Backing the engine is a close-ratio T-56 six-speed transmission, 4.10:1 gears, and an upgraded ECU for racing. Koni two-way adjustable coilovers make up the suspension, and a 4” carbon fiber brake duct helps keep the pads cool on this built-racing car. This is as close to turn-key as a race car has ever been built, and it looks as though it will soon have another championship under its belt. I wonder if Rehagen isn’t upgrading to the 2010 model now?
