The 1964th and final example of the 2015 Ford Mustang 50 Year Limited Edition has managed to sell for $170,000 at the Barrett-Jackson auctions in Las Vegas.
All funds raised from the sale are benefitting the Henry Ford Health System’s Edith and Benson Ford Heart & Vascular Institute. The winner bidder not only now owns a piece of Ford history but also has the option of the car being fitted with a supercharger from Ford Racing at no extra cost.
Additionally, the winning bidder has received a special VIP package for the Ford EcoBoost 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup race in the middle of next month.
As the name indicates, the 50 Year Limited Edition celebrates the 50th anniversary of the famous American muscle car and it is limited to 1964 units (also the year the Mustang was first introduced). Based on the Mustang GT, this special edition Mustang features a host of visual changes differentiating it from the regular car.
The Mustang 50 Year Limited Edition is available in Kona Blue or as pictured here, Wimbledon White. Importantly, the 50 Year Limited Edition comes standard with a host of features normally optional on the Mustang GT such as the performance pack. As a matter of fact, all customers can choose between is the exterior colour and whether to use a six-speed manual transmission or an automatic ‘box.
Performance details haven’t been revealed just yet, but the Mustang 50 Year Limited Edition is fitted with the same 5.0-liter naturally aspirated V8 engine as standard Mustang GT delivering over 420 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque.
Inside the cabin, the car features a uniquely finished axel spin finish across the aluminium trim panel spanning across the instrument panel. It also features individually etched badges as well as a cashmere-stitched, leather-wrapped steering wheel with similar stitching also being featured on the shifter boot, instrument panel, centre armrest, door inserts and seats.
