As we recently shared, Ford Motor Company again donated a unique Mustang for auction at the annual Experimental Aircraft Association Gathering of Eagles held during EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. This year’s vehicle began as a Shelby GT350 but it was modified in tribute to the Ole Yeller P-51D Mustang aircraft that Bob Hoover flew to set the coast-to-coast prop plane record of five hours and 20 minutes.

The Ole Yeller Shelby GT350 Mustang that Ford donated to the Gathering of Eagles auction raised $295,000 for the Experimental Aircraft Association’s youth education programs.
