Rare Mustangs Available At Upcoming Barrett-Jackson Online Auction
Thanks to my friends at Ford Performance who did a pretty cool story on some amazing pony cars that will be on the auction block starting today. As part of Barrett-Jackson’s Online Only May Auction, some rare and gorgeous Mustangs will be available.
But you better have a lot of money in your checking account to afford these beauties. Even if you’re just watching only it’s something to do while we self isolate. I already provided you a top 10 list of great Mustang movies earlier this week.
If you’ve blown through those and have the need for more Mustang goodness, then the Online Only May Auction by Barrett-Jackson has just what you want.
“We couldn’t be more excited with the diversity of the Mustangs we’ve consigned for our May 2020 online auction,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “We’ll have nearly 100 premium collector cars with some incredibly rare Mustangs included. A model from nearly every decade is represented on our online docket, starting with a classic 1968 Shelby GT500 Convertible (Lot#236) to a rare 20th Anniversary GT350 Fox Body (Lot#114) with just under 5,000 original miles.”
According to Ford Performance, Barrett-Jackson’s Online Only May 2020 Auction will be run on the online auction platform Proxibid, so bidders and sellers alike will enjoy secure online transactions and an infrastructure that boasts 99 percent uptime. And if you’re looking to spruce up your man cave, the online auction will also include nearly 250 pieces of genuine Automobilia.
