I believe this mustang was owned by a fellow named Bill Hubbs of Pacos Texas in the mid 70s. He took it to Reno a couple of times. Not sure what or where it ended up?

This Mustang was owned by Jim Fugate during the time this photo was taken during the 1968 Reno Air Races. It was modified with fiberglass wingtips which extended the wingspan approximately two to three feet.
