The 1949 Bendix race winner P-51C Thunderbird, owned by Hollywood star & WWII bomber pilot Jimmy Stewart, weighed 6223 lbs and raced on a special mix of 150 octane gasoline produced by General Petroleum Company.
As Thunderbird streaked across the Cleveland finish line with Joe DeBona in the pilot's seat, the staggering average speed of 470 miles per hour set a Bendix record for piston airplanes.
Thunderbird was finished with 48 coats of primers and the iconic gloss cobalt blue paint. Polished to a high shine, the paint job reportedly added 8mph to the speed of the aircraft.
Thunderbird, with its red Pegasus horse, gloss paint scheme, celebrity owners and pilots continues to be one of the most notable P-51s in the world.
We are pleased to offer you a complete collection on this mythical aircraft. We have taken great care over the details of our creations in partnership with Aircorps Aviation and the Dakota Territory Air Museum.
