Last year, the AMSOIL Devoted to Protection Sweepstakes was announced at the 2015 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. The grand prize of a fully restored 1972 Ford Mustang Mach 1 would be handed to one lucky winner in October 2016. Out of thousands of entries received, AMSOIL has announced George E. out of Detroit as the recipient of this American classic.

The 1972 Ford Mustang was selected as a powerful symbol of the American muscle-car era. AMSOIL partnered with Greg Friedrich, owner & founder of Gizmo’s Hot Rods to refine this classic vehicle front-to-rear. The fastback with ram air hood features positraction rear-wheel drive, a three-speed automatic transmission, a modified 351 Cleveland engine that makes 425 hp and 450 ft.-lbs. torque, Wilwood drilled and slotted four-piston brakes, Afco double-adjustable billet shocks, upgraded suspension and steering components and hand-built ceramic-coated Mandrel bent exhaust. In addition to the upgraded fuel system to accommodate the new engine, the ’72 ‘Stang is protected with AMSOIL fluids and lubricants from bumper-to-bumper.

“As people who love cars, finding and modifying a vehicle like this has been fun,” said Erica Danielski, director of integrated marketing for AMSOIL. “We liked the selection of this particular Mustang because 1972 was a defining year for our company. That was the year AMSOIL chairman Al Amatuzio founded AMSOIL, on the same principles that defined his career as a jet fighter squadron commander – high-performance, superior quality, excellence and strong leadership.”

The Mustang has been delivered and will soon be seen on the road with George behind the wheel. Three first prize winners received $500 in AMSOIL products to keep their own vehicles running peak.  AMSOIL congratulates the following first prize winners:

Eduard D. of San Jose, Calif.
Matt T. of Kenosha, Wis.
Tim S. of Boise, Idaho
