There are few cars that are more recognizable than the Ford Mustang. As the iconic pony car celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, Ford has decided to celebrate its popularity by auctioning off a 50 Years Limited-Edition Ford Mustang. This special ‘Stang, which has the badge number 1,964 (the year the Mustang was brought to life) will be auctioned by Barrett-Jackson, with all proceeds going to Get Your Heart Racing, which supports Henry Ford Health System’s Edit and Benson Ford Heart & Vascular Institute.
“Ford Mustang inspires passion like no other car, said Raj Nair, Ford group vice president of Global Product Development. “The visceral look, sound, and performance of Mustang resonates with people, even if they’ve never driven one. Mustang is definitely more than just a car—it is the heart and soul of Ford Motor Company.”
The number 1,964 Limited Edition Mustang is based on the 2015 Mustang GT. Along with this sexy car, the winner will also receive the VIP package to Ford Championship Weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Here, the preproduction unit of the 50 Years Limited Edition Mustang will be the official pace car.
While the 2015 Mustang isn’t available at dealerships yet, make sure to keep an eye on Friendly Ford’s dealership lots to ensure you don’t miss its arrival!
