Back in early July we told you about a special USAF edition Ford Mustang and all of its supporting details. So the “Gathering of Eagles” auction event happened mere days ago, and the 2014 Mustang GT done-up for a fortunate bidder, was auctioned off with a final price of $398,000. Wow. The cool part about the high price is that it’s for charitable purposes; so the Experimental Aircraft Association’s Young Eagles program benefits as a result.

Given the fact that “Gone in 60 Seconds” wasn’t exactly the most thrilling of story lines, we all know quite well the flick made up for most of its lacking allure with plenty of automobile eye candy. Domestics, exotics, customs, chops, and more all adorned the silver screen for audiences to take in, but no car seemed to capture everyone’s attention like “Eleanor”, a highly-modified 1967 Shelby GT500. And if you do not know of the care we speak, well then, you need to turn in your Mustang keys right now…
If you have ever had the chance to hit up the SEMA show in Las Vegas, then there is no doubt you have come across the Classic Design Concepts (CDC) booth, loaded with tastefully equipped custom automobiles with sensible enhancements & modifications. One such specimen, which made its debut back in 2007, is now up on the block with less than a week to go until it finds a new home. CDC’s 1967 Flashback Ford Mustang project is one of special repute, with its Dynacorn body, Shelby GT500 V8, Tremec 6-speed, customer 4-link rear, Wilwood brakes (and lots more add-ons) making any future owner smile for miles.
So if you have a love for the Ford Mustang classics AND a fat six figures to spend ($109,900 as of this posting), then head on over to the auction page below, and put your money where your mouth is.
What are the chances you are going to get in life to pick up nearly 50 Ford Mustangs at once? Pretty good, actually, if you are an avid eBay surfer and stumbled onto a “barn find” this week. A seller in Minnesota has a lot of 49 Ford Mustang specimens, ranging from 1964 through 1970, in mostly “not so hot” shape–but hey, these cars aren’t exactly spring chickens, nor have they been stashed away in Leno‘s garage, getting daily TLC.
Some of these classics have titles, some do not…and all of them look like they have been gleaned to have the best of their innards harvested for projects of yesteryear. Keep reading to get the roster of what’s all in the auction, or hit up eBay to see what’s up!
Remember earlier this week, we told you the Barrett-Jackson auction would have a host of Ford Mustang specimens up for grabs? Well, one in particular caught our eye earlier this afternoon. A one-off special edition 2013 Shelby GT500 Mustang hit the block and ended up ticking out a healthy$150,000 closing price. This dollar amount benefits a good charitable cause, so it’s not just another high-priced Mustang sale all for naught. This car is also signed by Ford CEO Alan Mulally as well as Bill Ford Jr, and Edsel Ford.
