ON THE BLOCK Rare Mustangs At Barrett-Jackson

With most people staying home, businesses have pivoted to working online. With a background in online auctions, it was easy for the crew at Barrett-Jackson to bring excitement of bidding on dream machines to the masses via the internet. Kicking off on May 8, 2020 the Online Only May 2020 Auction will run 75 vehicles across its virtual auction block, and not surprisingly many of them are Mustangs.

“Barrett-Jackson was the first collector car auction company to introduce live internet bidding to the industry in the early 1990s,” Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson, said. “Today, that same innovative spirit has led to our new online auction platform that will deliver the same level of trust digitally as we do in person. All of our bidders will be carefully pre-screened and our vehicles reviewed with the same care as at our live events, making our online auctions the perfect extension of the Barrett-Jackson experience.”

Among the highlights of the Online Only May 2020 Auction is this 1968 Shelby GT500 Convertible. With only 36,000 miles on the clock, it has a 428 under the hood, backed by a three-speed automatic. “This is one of the finest examples of an unrestored 1968 Shelby…” says Kevin Marti of Marti Report. “…The rarity of the documents present along with original parts, put this in the top three of original 1968 Shelbys that I have had the pleasure to observe.”
One of the headlining Ford vehicles in the Online Only May 2020 Auction is this stunning 1969 Mustang Boss 429. Sprayed in Candy Apple Red, it is one of 857 cars optioned with the 429-cube engine. It has 71,087 miles on the odometer and is one of the first 150 built.

Utilizing the Proxibid auction platform, this auction is designed to bring pre-screened bidders together with sellers offering vehicles and automobillia.

“No other company connects the collector car community like Barrett-Jackson,” Jackson added. “Over the last nearly 50 years, we’ve built a brand that’s come to represent more than just the auction of collector cars. Our relaunched online auction platform is the perfect extension of the Barrett-Jackson experience. It won’t just feature a diverse docket of coveted collector cars you expect from our auctions, it’ll fan the flame of passion we share as enthusiasts.”

According to its Marti Report, this 1970 Boss 302 is the only one built with its particular set of options. Those unique choices include yellow paint, black vinyl seats, a four-speed manual trans, and a 3.50-geared Traction-Lok differential.

A lucky bidder can take a trip back to the days of Ford’s Special Vehicle Team with this 1995 SVT Mustang Cobra. One of only 760 ordered with black paint and black interior, this one has a scant 108 miles on the clock. Never dealer-prepped, it is still wrapped in plastic so it is really a mid-’90s time capsule.

While it wasn’t exactly the pinnacle of Fox Mustang performance, this 1984 Mustang GT350, it is still a 20th Anniversary special edition. With only 4,804 original miles, this 5.0-powered machine comes with plenty of documentation.
