One-off Mustang GT raffled for Multiple Sclerosis SocietyThu, 08 May 2014 00:00:00 -0700
Ford Motor Co. is teaming up with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society in an effort to raise money for future research and aid those affected by MS.
The Mustang raffle is set for Aug. 16 during the 2015 Woodward Dream Cruise and will showcase the ultimate prize: a Wimbledon white 2015 Ford Mustang GT.
It will feature the traditional 5.0-liter V8 that pushes out 420 hp, backed with a six-speed manual. The Ford will truly be a one-off, signed by Bill Ford, Ford Motor Co. executive chairman. The serial number will be 0001 of 0001. Collectors, eat your hearts out!
The interior will feature an aluminum instrument panel trim, two-tone cashmere and black leather seats with contrasting cashmere stitching in the instrument panel, steering wheel and other components.
Chrome accents will adorn the grille and taillight lenses, and the whole package sits on a set of 19-inch Y-spoke wheels.
“We're thrilled to be able to work with and help the National MS Society again,” said Raj Nair, Ford group vice president, global product development. “As pleased as we are to be able to help financially with the Society's No Opportunity Wasted research project, we also feel it's important to help raise greater awareness of this terrific program. That we're creating one -- and only one -- Mustang GT 50 Years convertible for the society shows how much we respect and support their efforts.”
According to Ford, a limited number of tickets are on sale now and can be purchased through the National MS Society, Michigan Chapter and Ford Motor Co. while their supplies last.
For your chance to win this beauty, a 20 spot gets you one raffle ticket. You never know, good Karma could come your way in the form of a new Mustang. We like the odds.
Tickets are also available online at ford4ms.com.
Keep in mind that the winner doesn't have to be present at the time of the drawing, but if you are the lucky one, you're responsible for title, taxes and registration fees.
