2014 U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds Edition Ford Mustang Sold For $398,000

FLUSHING, Mich.- You may remember when we posted the first photos of the special one-of-a-kind U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds Edition 2014 Ford Mustang GT, created by Ford Motor Company's design and engineering teams. Well that unique 'Stang was finally auctioned off for charity and raised a lot of money for a great cause! The 2014 U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds Edition Ford Mustang sold for $398,000 on August 1st, benefitting the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) Young Eagles organization!

During the World's Greatest Aviation Celebration in Oshkosh, Wisonsin, James Slattery from San Diego became the winning bidder of the special edition Mustang! With a bid of $398,000, James was happy to take home the 2014 U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds Edition Ford Mustang, especially since all proceeds of the sale went towards the EAA Young Eagles program which helps to inspire and motivate the next generation of leaders, aviators, and innovators. To date, the program has provided free introductory flights to more than 1.6 million young people since 1992!

With VIN 0001, the one-of-a-kind car celebrates and commemorates the 60th anniversary of the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds. Celebrating qualities displayed both by the United States Air Force Thunderbirds and Ford Motor Company: dedication and excellence, Ford's design and engineering teams were able to capture those recognizable symbols in the vehicle.

A long time sponsor of EAA and AirVenture, the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds Edition joins five other unique Mustangs developed by Ford for the program in recent years! Not to mention, the sale of Ford vehicles at EAA AirVenture events has collectively raised more than $2.5 million to support Young Eagles.
