In the same auction where the first production unit of Dodge Challenger Hellcat was sold for a staggering $825,000, the very last production unit of Ford Mustang 50 Years limited edition was also offered for sale. The Mustang raised $170,000 for charity.
Just like the Dodge, the sale of this Ford Mustang was for a good cause. Proceeds from sale benefit Get Your Heart Racing program to support Henry Ford Health System’s Edith and Benson Ford Heart & Vascular Institute.
Set aside from normal models with exclusive interior and exterior appointments such as a special front grille, more chrome detailing, and a retro inspired louvered rear quarter-windows, the Mustang 50 Years edition was limited to 1,964 units; an homage to the year the pony car was born.
“It’s a privilege to benefit from the auction of such a spectacular automobile,” said Sandy Hudson, chief development officer, Henry Ford Hospital. “Henry Ford Hospital and its Edith and Benson Ford Heart & Vascular Institute are grateful for our ongoing relationship with both Ford and Barrett-Jackson that has allowed us to raise incredible amounts of funding for the Get Your Heart Racing program.”Final Mustang 50 Years Edition Raises $170K for Charity,
