The WW II tribute “Old Crow” Ford Mustang Sells for $400,000 for charity at auction. It is a custom Ford Mustang GT built to honor a World War II flying ace was sold at a charity auction for $400,000 on Thursday.
The muscle car was painted in the same colors of Old Crow, the P-51 Mustang flown by C.E. Bud Anderson, who has been credited with over 16 victories during the war.
Anderson, now 97 years old, had a lengthy career as a military and test pilot, and is considered one of America’s greatest aviators. All of the proceeds from the sale held at the Airventure show in Oshkosh, Wis., are designated for the Experimental Aircraft Association’s educational programs.
The car was specially built by NASCAR team owner and aviation collector Jack Roush’s performance outfit, and comes with a 710 HP supercharged V8, aerodynamic tweaks and an interior trimmed in brown leather and military green canvas.
The car was the 12th donated to the auction by Ford and the sale brings the grand total raised by the auctions to nearly $4 million.
All I can say is that this car was a great build and earned every penny on the sale. All the proceeds went to a good cause, which us always a good feeling. I hope we see more cars like the “Old Crow” Ford Mustang in the future for sale.Categories: Auto News
