Mustangs Rule the Auction House at Barret-Jackson
The Mustang Source
Continuing to build on a long legacy with Barrett-Jackson, Ford Mustangs claimed four of the top ten sales at the car collector’s Las Vegas show. We know – it really isn’t major news considering how popular the pony car always is at the event. Still, it’s always nice to revel in new facts that speak to America’s passion for Mustangs like those noted by “Business Insider,” in a report about the recent Vegas show. Earning the ninth spot for Barrett-Jackson’s top ten sales for the weekend was a 2008 Ford Mustang Saleen that sold for $180,000.
Proceeds from the car went to the Austin Hatcher Foundation, an organization that fights pediatric cancer. The eight top winner was the 2014 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet Prototype we raved about earlier, which sold for $200,000. The money from that pony car will go to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. A 1967 Shelby GT500E Convertible raked in $242,000 at the sixth annual Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas auction to take the number sixth spot among the top ten cars sold.
The 2012 “Wounded Warriors” Shelby GT500 “Super Snake,” which we reported on earlier this week, took the number two spot on the top ten list. It pulled down a whopping $500,000 to support American troops and their families. It all is just another indication that regardless of how many you see, America never gets tired of Mustangs.
