2009 Iacocca Silver 45th Anniversary Mustang

One of only 45 made, this unique Mustang will be sure to garner attention — and big bucks — at upcoming auction.

 Lee Iaccoca Mustang

In 2009, to celebrate the 45th anniversary of the pony car, Ford paid a special tribute to the Big Daddy of the Mustang, Lee Iacocca, former president of Ford Motor Co. Of course, Iacocca wasn’t one to stand on the sidelines, especially when it came to his great passion for the Mustang. He worked with a team of designers and California-based Galpin Ford to create a Mustang worthy of the Iacocca name.

And now, if you want to get your hands on it, you are in luck. Barrett-Jackson will be auctioning one of these Silver Edition Mustangs.

“The car is far more than just a parts-bin Mustang,” says Barrett-Jackson on its website. “Metal Crafters created a unique profile that carried the fastback roofline all the way to the back of the decklid. The clean, distinctive front end features recessed headlamps. Iacocca Design 20-inch wheels tie it all together. On the inside, you’ll find Iacocca Design diamond leather seats, Iacocca door sill plates and a numbered dash plaque. This example has the optional supercharged V8, rated at 400 horsepower, teamed with a 5-speed manual transmission.”

The car also has a dash plaque and Iacocca badges.
