Hooning In Project Kitsune, A Unique Fox Mustang

At first glance, Ron Baugh’s 1991 Mustang LX coupe looks like your typical Japanese racer. In fact, on the outside, it is. The fender-mounted mirrors, fender flares front and rear, front-mount oil cooler, unique art work on the hood all play homage to the Japanese style and influence. Even the name, “Kitsune,” is Japanese, which appropriately translates to fox in English.

To me it kind of bridges the gap between old school muscle car and new performance cars. — Ron Baugh

Judging the its exterior, you would expect some sort of exotic import swap under the hood. However, Ron’s engine combo will look quite familiar to most of you. It is a traditional, 351-cubic-inch Ford small-block topped by AFR heads and boosted by a Vortech V1 supercharger. This tried-and-true Blue Oval powerplant is sure to get the job done every time, especially in the light Fox chassis.

“I’ve been a Foxbody fan since they were new, my first car was a ninety three GT convertible,” he explained. To me it kind of bridges the gap between old-school muscle car and new performance cars.”

In the Fox Mustang world, being different is difficult, chances are someone has already built it or is in the process of building it. Ron has definitely done a nice job of setting his coupe apart from the crowd and we love it!

A 351 Windsor with AFR aluminum cylinder heads, and a Vortech supercharger are right at home under the hood of this unique Fox.

So many of us follow and love the Fox for the same exact reason! We can definitely relate with Ron on this one! Congratulations on building a unique Fox build and on destroying some tires with Ken Block’s bunch of Hoonigans — the burnouts do not lie!

Ron works for Forgiato Wheels, so running a different set of wheels on each side is no problem. It gives it a unique style that certainly matches the rest of the car!

Growing up with a dad who loved Corvettes, I was destined to be a gearhead from day one. Beyond that, my dad owned an auto parts business for over 25 years. There, I learned the automotive basics as a child, then began my professional career working there after high school. From Corvettes and Superbirds to Hemis and Cobra Jets, my dad has owned a little of everything over the years, so I've had my chance to get some quality seat time behind the wheel of some rare, unique, and sometimes, just odd automobiles. I have owned my share of toys, including over 20 Mustangs. I guess to make a long story short, if you look up "car crazy" you will probably find my photo listed pretty close to it!
