The Shelby GT350 is one of the most well regarded modern Mustang in recent memory. From its outstanding handling to its high-revving Voodoo power, the latest Shelby Mustang is definitely lust worthy. However, to own that kind of performance you need the proper funding. If your bank account isn’t quite ready to let you buy one, the Shelby American Collection has an option for you.
The museum is auctioning off a 2016 Shelby GT350. Equipped with the Track Package, this Magnetic Gray example wears chassis number G2265 and it is adorned with the blue over-body stripes. For more on the car and raffle, watch this…
“The drawing winner can choose between a new 2016 Shelby GT350 or $50,000.00. In order for the car or the $50,000.00 prize to be awarded, a minimum of $150,000 in donations must be raised,” says the site. “In the event less than $150,000 in donations is raised, the Shelby American Collection will split the net proceeds on a 50/50 basis with the winning ticket holder.”
The museum is auctioning this car to generate funds to keep its display up and running. Located in Boulder, Colorado, this museum features a lot of rare memorabilia from the salad days of Shelby automobiles.
“Thanks to the generosity of owners and collectors, we have some of the most important American cars ever made on display at our Boulder museum, along with an extensive collection of race records, period photographs, memorabilia and tributes to the pioneer drivers and visionaries of the era including Carroll Shelby, Ken Miles, Dan Gurney, Bob Bondurant, Phil Hill, Phil Remington and other Shelby American Team members,” says the museum.
For as little as $25 you can buy 2 tickets and earn one bonus ticket. There are various donations steps all the way up to 80 tickets and 120 bonus tickets for $1,000. The deadline to purchase tickets is 12:00 p.m. Mountain Daylight Time on December 10, 2016 and the drawing will be held live on the Shelby American Collection YouTube channel later that day. If you want to take a crack at owning this car, you can buy tickets right here.
