Ford Designer Melvin Betancourt created this one-off School Bus Yellow Mustang Boss 302, which will be auctioned off to benefit cardiovascular research at the Henry Ford Health System.

There is actually a story behind this car. The designer who made this car suffered from a heart problem 11 years ago, and he was saved by the doctors at Henry Ford Hospital. Now he’s come up with this car as a token of his appreciation, and to benefit the hospital by auctioning off the car at the “Get Your Heart Racing” benefit presented by Ford Motor Company and Henry Ford Health System on Saturday, Oct. 15.

The car is a standard 302 Boss with a 450 hp V8 engine and Boss body kit, wheels and suspension. The only difference, of course, is the legendary School Bus yellow paint job, which is an homage to the car Parnelli Jones drove to victory in the 1970 Trans-Am Championship.

“We’re all here for a purpose, and maybe my purpose is to help people through my skills,” said Betancourt. “One of the things I do very well is vehicle customization – taking a car that already exists and enhancing it to make it a one-of-a-kind vehicle.”
