Someone Paid $170,000 for the Final Ford Mustang 50th Anniversary Edition

Auction / 3 Comments

#1,964 of 1,964 units was sold in auction in Las Vegas.

OK, so it's not quite the $825,000 someone paid for the first Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, but $170,000 for a Mustang is still a considerable chunk of change to pay for a pony car. Both cars crossed the blocks at Barrett-Jackson's Las Vegas auction last weekend, and the money paid for the last of the 1,964 special-edition Ford Mustang 50 Years Limited models will benefit the Edith and Benson Ford Heart & Vascular Institute, part of the Henry Ford Health System.

Based on the Mustang GT, the 50th Anniversary Edition is available in exclusive shades of Kona Blue or Wimbledon White – the same shade the very first Mustang wore when it sold in April 1964. It comes fully loaded with exclusive touches including louvered rear-quarter windows specially built from layered sheets of glass, subtle chrome touches, and unique 19-inch 'Y-spoke' alloys inspired by the original Stang's steel wheels. A faux gas cap badge wearing "GT 50 Years" can also be found at the rear. An exclusive two-tone cashmere and black interior boasts cashmere stitching, aluminum trim, 50 Year badges, and a serialized '50 Year Limited Edition' number on the passenger side.
