The ’72 Ford Maverick commonly referred to as “Project Underdog” will make an appearance at this month’s Barrett-Jackson Classic Car Show and Auction in Las Vegas. The vehicle, restored and remodeled by actor Sung Kang, made national headlines after debuting at the Shell “Pioneering Performance” booth during last year’s SEMA Show. It will be up for auction October 21.
Kang, known for his role in the car film series The Fast and the Furious, teamed up with Shell, Pennzoil, SEMA and three students aspiring to be automotive technicians to transform a commonly overlooked ’72 Ford Maverick into eye candy.
All the proceeds from its sale will benefit the SEMA Memorial Scholarship Foundation, which is devoted to fostering the next generation of automotive aftermarket industry leaders and innovators. The Maverick will cross the block Saturday, October 21, 2017, and is assigned to Lot #3005.
