Barrett-Jackson is becoming quite the venue for charity cars.
Almost a year ago, Chevrolet announced that they would be bringing a special Corvette to the Barrett-Jackson auction. This turned out to be the very first production C7 Corvette Stingray to roll off of the assembly line, and now Ford will be following suit when Barrett-Jackson kicks off again on January 18th. Ford will be bringing the right to claim the first production 2015 Mustang GT to the event.
The winning bidder will then be able to pick the color, transmission and options that they want for this first Mustang. The car will also be signed by members of the Ford Mustang design team. The auctioning of special vehicles like this has become popular with manufacturers as a means of raising money for charity, and the proceeds from this car will go to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. The Corvette went for $1.05 million, so now it just remains to be seen how much Ford can raise.
