First Shelby GT350 Mustang to be Auctioned at Barrett-Jackson

Ford will be auctioning the first production unit of the new Shelby GT350 Mustang at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction with all proceeds benefiting JDRF, the leading organization funding type 1 diabetes research.

The winning bidder of Lot No. 3008 (no reserve) will be able to choose from any of the available Shelby GT350 Mustang colors and packages, which have yet to be announced.  This first retail production unit will also be signed by Ford team members involved in the design and development of this special high-performance vehicle.

This marks already the fifth time that Ford has auctioned an S550 Mustang for a good cause, following the charitable auctions of the first production 2015 Mustang GT, the one and only convertible 50 Year Limited Edition, the F-35 Lightning II Edition Mustang and the final production unit of the 50 Year Limited Edition Mustang.

Live coverage of the Shelby GT350 auction will air on Velocity on Saturday, January 17, 2015.
