I have a 24 v battery and want to know if I can safely run a ford mustang with it?

Only if you have a reducer in the system. The starter is a 9volt starter in the Mustang and it will be burned up in days, the coil is 12 volt as is every thing else, you will burn every thing out if you use it. Very Dum move!

You need a transformer.

How old a mustang? Does it have a computer in it? 24v is a aircraft battery. We use to use them in the winter to start cars. As they spin the starter much faster. Then go back to the 12v. They heat up the starter very fast. So could only be used 15 seconds max. To start a vehicle. That was the old days before computers & vehicles with carbs. Today that extra heat should fry the more sensitive electronics in a vehicle. Or in the old days we would have 2 12volt battery's for 24v. For quick start after we ran down the 12v battery in the vehicle. You got some extra spark also with 24v. So you could not drive the car. Just quick start it on those extra cold days. Even back then it could burn the points up fast.

For about 2 seconds yes. Then, there will be smoke and instant loss of power. Fixing it will cost about twice as much as the car is worth.

A Mustang requires a 12 volt battery and electrical system and an internal combustion engine

No, your car requires a 12 volt automotive battery of the proper size and power rating.

Probably not, you should sell that mustang and reduce environmental risk it could impose.
