First Retail Unit of 2015 Ford Mustang Sells for $300,000
 BRIGHTON, Mich - At the Barrett-Jackson Auction Company's sale in Scottsdale, Arizona, the First Retail Unit of the 2015 Ford Mustang Sold for $300,000. The purchase was made by a car collector and North Texas Ford dealer, Sam Pack.

Just like that the first retail unit of the 2015 Ford Mustang was sold for $300,000. The purchase of the 2015 Ford Mustang GT increased Ford's charity vehicle sales to more than $3.5 million for JDRF, the leading diabetes research organization and Ford partner since 1983.

With the Mustang always being known as "the car designed to be designed by you", bidder Sam Pack will have some say in the look of his 2015 Ford Mustang. Pack will choose from either a manual or automatic transmission as well as any color interior and exterior color combination that is offered on the all-new Mustang. The team that was involved in the Mustang design and development will also sign the vehicle in honor of the donation to JDRF.

A Shelby GT500-inspired 1956 Ford F-100 was sold for a lump sum of $450,000 to Gordie Broda of Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, Canada. The 1956 Ford F-100 or "Snakebit" is a combination of street rod styling and the iconic Ford Shelby GT500.

This was made possible thanks to the Wheels of Dreams Project, which was developed to raise funds for the new Children's Hospital of Saskatchewan in Canada. The Wheels of Dreams Project is a collaborative effort with KISS bassist Gene Simmons, his wife and Saskatoon-born actress, Shannon Tweed-Simmons, as well as the area businesses including the local Saskatchewan Ford dealer association. The sale of the truck will help the Children's Hospital achieve their 2016 reconstruction goal.
