Joey Logano’s Custom Built ’71 Mach 1 Mustang Gets the Full XPEL STEALTH Treatment
Having a custom-built car is the stuff of daydreams. The idea of building or having one built to your exact specifications right down to the rim size is often a goal many car enthusiasts strive for. NASCAR Cup Series champion Joey Logano got to experience that moment first hand and on camera. At the start of 2020, Discovery Channel's "Car Kings" featured Galpin Auto Sports building a resto-mod 1971 Ford Mustang for Logano. The finished car was then presented to him at Daytona Beach, Florida, just before the Daytona 500.
This Mach 1 Mustang packs a supercharged 5.0-liter Coyote V8 with custom graphics showcasing Logano's racing number No.22. The iconic muscle car wears aftermarket wheels with a matte black paint job, a personal favorite of Logano. Many of the vehicles in his collection sport matte black.
Owning a custom car is excellent, but it does come with its fair share of ownership anxiety. Most of this mood spoiling anxiety comes from continually worrying about the paint being ruined by a sudden rock chip or parking lot mishap.
“I was extremely hesitant to take it out because the body on this model rolls under the bottom side of the vehicle and I didn't want to mess up the amazing matte black paint job. After researching what would be the best solution, I came across great reviews about the products XPEL had to offer.” – Joey Logano
That's why Joey Logano wasted no time to completely cover his custom 1971 Mach 1 Mustang in a full XPEL STEALTH wrap. Bumper to bumper, this matte muscle car is coated in a virtually invisible protective shield against flying road debris, bird bombs, and careless car door operators in parking lots. STEALTH also makes matte black, and any other paint finish, easier to wash and stay clean.
“Now that the XPEL paint protection film has been applied to my Mach 1, my fear of driving it on the streets is gone. Once the XPEL paint protection film was applied, I think I took the Mach 1 to three car shows in two weeks!” said Logano, after spending time with STEALTH satin protection film on his Mustang.
Besides having the Mach 1 dressed in STEALTH, Logano also had its side and rear windows fitted with XPEL PRIME XR PLUS window tint. The tint works to protect against 99 percent of harmful UV rays while offering 98 percent infrared heat rejection while adding style to an already cool car. Using nano-particle technology, PRIME XR PLUS keeps car interiors cool and windows dark without sacrificing visibility using multilayer nano-particle technology.
