For car collectors, buying a first-made copy of the new model is a dream, and one man became the owner of the first Ford Mustang Shelby GT500.
It’s about the first produced production Mustang Shelby GT500 (VIN 001), sold at auction for $1.1 million. It was bought by Craig Jackson, president and director of the Barrett-Jackson auction house, who won “on his field” in Scottsdalle where the auction by mentioned house was held.
The total amount will be donated to the global organization JDRF which finances research on type 1 diabetes to find the drug. It is one of the organizations that Ford supports.
“The chance to become the owner of the first copy is a lifetime opportunity. It’s even more important to help collect money for the JDRF. Everybody wins.” Ford President Joe Hinrichs said.
