If you aren’t hot for a 2015 Mustang, you probably haven’t seen one in person yet. You definitely haven’t seen a convertible in person, but you could have the chance to win one of the most unique convertibles of this Mustang generation. That’s right, Ford is raffling off the keys to a one-of-a-kind, 50th Anniversary edition convertible at the Woodward Dream Cruise.
This 2015 Mustang will be the only convertible constructed with the Mustang 50 Years package, so if you love that car but need a convertible, this is your only shot. Of course, you might not want to cruise it on the beach, because it will be quite collectible. In fact, the dash plaque will not only be engraved with Ford Motor Company Executive Chairman Bill Ford’s signature, but it will wear the serial number 0001 of 0001. That is rare.
Should you want to drive it, as Bill recommends you do with all Mustangs, it will pack all the goodness the 50 Years option has to offer. That includes Wimbledon White paint; a chrome-accented grille with corralled pony emblem; chrome accents around the tri-bar taillight lenses; aluminum instrument panel trim; a GT 50 Years badge; two-tone seats; 19-inch Y-spoke wheels; and a leather 50 Years owner’s guide portfolio. On the mechanical side, it offers a six-speed manual, six-piston Brembo brakes, a limited-slip diff, and 19-inch Pirelli tires.
Certainly it is a cool car, and well worth the price of a $20 raffle ticket. Better yet, the raffle benefits a great cause.
“We’re thrilled to be able to work with and help The National MS Society again,” Raj Nair, Ford group vice president, global product development, said. “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.”
The tickets are limited, so if you want a chance to win this car, click here. You can also purchase them by phone at (800) 243-5767. If you win, you will have to pony up for the title, taxes, and registration fees. However, you don’t have to be present August 16, 2014 in Ferndale, Michigan, for the ticket drawing on Mustang Alley at the Woodward Dream Cruise to win the car.
