This looks like the '51 which was owned by Jack Shaver. Shaver owned Miss Kat Brat since the late 60's or early '70's,but I believe this aircraft has changed owners in years past.I think Shaver had acquired another Mustang.

N988C now owned by Bob Ferguson. Jack Shaver did a total rebuild a few years ago and still flies it for Bob.

I saw this P-51 for the first time in an alumigrip paint ad (in plane & pilot magazine) , around 1977. I contacted Jack Shaver and got photo's and permission from him to send the photo's to a model company to have models made in this beautiful paint scheme, but the model company had just released a new WWII version and declined. I went to the GML show in columbus Oh 2007 to see if I could find her, but I should have done my homework here first, I didn't know that "Ain't Missbehavin" was the same plane.
