The SR-71 Mustang, the collaboration between automotive legends Jack Roush and Carroll Shelby, was auctioned off this evening during the AirVenture show in OshKosh, Wis. The gavel fell at $375,000 for this unique, one-of-a-kind Mustang that will surely increase in value. The auction was a benefit the EAA (Experimental Aircraft Association) Young Eagles program. The Ford Motor Company has been a proud supporter of EAA and Young Eagles for the past 15 years by providing various vehicles and donations each year to be raffled and auctioned off.
The SR-71 Mustang (“S” for Shelby, “R” for Roush) was built at ROUSH® in Livonia, Mich. The Mustang is on display in the Ford tent through Sunday at the AirVenture show.
