By now, you know all to well about the rarity of the 50 Year Limited Edition Mustang. Only 1,964 of these unique Mustangs will be constructed for the 2015 model year to celebrate the Mustang’s 50th birthday. If you haven’t already secured one of these, it’s quite likely they are all sold out. All but the last one built, that is. And, if you want to bid on it at the Barrett-Jackson auction from September 25-27, that special example could be yours.

How cool would it be to own the last 50 Year Limited Edition 2015 Mustang? If you have the means, you can bid on it at the Barrett-Jackson auction in September.

If you do win the auction, the Ford executives on hand will autograph the car. “We wanted to provide our most dedicated fans with the emotion of the original Mustang in a 21st century car,” Bill Ford said. “With this 50 Year Limited Edition, I believe we have accomplished our goal.”

Before the car arrives at Barrett-Jackson, it will debut at an event for the charity it will be sold for. All proceeds of the auction will benefit Get Your Heart Racing, a fundraising event supporting Edith and Benson Ford Heart & Vascular Institute. The charity will host a Pit Party fundraiser held at Eastern Market in Detroit on Sept. 12.

“The Get Your Heart Racing program has become our biggest annual fundraiser, and everybody who participates seems to love it,” Sandy Hudson, chief development officer, Henry Ford Hospital, said. “With the help of our sponsors—especially Ford Motor Company—we’re looking to 2014 to be our biggest and best year yet.”

Based on a Premium package, the 50 Year Limited Edition adds a number of unique features including 50 Years doorsill plates, an aluminum dash panel, and a unique cashmere-accented interior.

Not only will the winner of this auction score a truly special car, they will get a pretty great trip as well. The winner of this auction will receive a VIP package to the Ford EcoBoost 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup event at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Nov. 16, where No. 1,964 will pace the championship race.

“Ford Mustang inspires passion like no other car,” said Raj Nair, Ford group vice president, Global Product Development. “The visceral look, sound, and performance of Mustang resonate with people, even if they’ve never driven one. Mustang is definitely more than just a car—it is the heart and soul of Ford Motor Company.”

Well, it’s hard not to be passionate about the Mustang, especially a Mustang this rare. If you are lucky enough to place the winning bid, you will drive home in a special piece of history.

If you win the auction, the badge on your dash will read 1,964/1,964. As if that weren’t special enough, a NASCAR driver will drive the car on some hot laps before it acts as the official pace car for the Ford EcoBoost 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
