Collectible Mustang Convertible Up for Bid to Help Kids

  Hurst Mustang
  This collectible BFGoodrich/Hurst Mustang ragtop makes 435 hp, with 100 percent of its auction price going to the new Victory Junction Gang Camp in Kansas City.

Looking for a unique, modern Mustang convertible? The 2010 BFGoodrich/Hurst Mustang, built by Hurst Performance in conjunction with Woodhouse Auto Family of Blair, Nebraska and BFGoodrich, will take to the auction block at the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction, January 18–24.

One hundred percent of the proceeds benefit the newest Victory Junction Gang Camp in Kansas City, Kansas.

The collectible pace car features a 435hp/400 lb.-ft. ROUSH supercharged engine, Magnaflow exhaust, Wilwood brakes and Hurst-tuned Eibach coilovers, springs and sway bar.

Hurst 20-inch wheels, BFGoodrich g-Force T/A KDW tires and a Hurst Competition/Plus short-throw shifter with gold anodized T-handle complete the package.

The winning bidder not only gets the Mustang, but also an invitation to tour the Camp founded by Kyle and Pattie Petty, an afternoon of hunting or fishing with Kyle and dinner with the family at Petty Farm.

"I will be there at the auction to congratulate the lucky bidder personally,” Kyle Petty adds.

The BFGoodrich/Hurst Mustang debuted at the Ford Racing Mustang Challenge at Miller Motorsports Park on September 19. Most recently the car paced the "Run to Victory Half Marathon and Five Mile Run/Walk" in Randleman, North Carolina, which raised more than $122,000 for Victory Junction. Hurst Performance President Ron Flint ran the five-mile portion of the race along with Victory Junction President Mike LePore.

"We are so excited to return to Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale with another highly collectible car," said Hurst Chairman Nate Shelton. "Hurst not only has a rich history in the world of pace cars, but we also feel privileged to give back as much as we can to deserving organizations such as Victory Junction. We're so thankful to our partners, Woodhouse, BFGoodrich, Reliable Carriers and Barrett-Jackson, and suppliers for helping us accomplish this."
