Petty Garage-customized 2015 Ford Mustang GT Sold For Charity For Over Half A Million Dollars
Richard Petty of Motorsports fame graced the red carpet at the Mecum Dallas auction and helped to sell this Petty Garage-customized 2015 Ford Mustang GT. The car was designed and built on behalf of the Paralyzed Veterans of America. The Paralyzed Veterans of America is a non-profit organization trying to help those who have been seriously injured in service to the United Staest of America for more than 68 years. The organization aims to pay attention to the special needs of veterans of the armed forces.
It is well-known that the Paralyzed Veterans of America helped brighten the future of many of these guys. Richard Petty is one of the guys who has long supported the organization. He is always trying to raise awareness and financial funding for it. As he wanted to continue the tradition this year he donated a brand new modified Ford Mustang GT. Everything in this car is tuned and modified in some way. Under the hood we have an additional Roush TVS 2300 Supercharger added, a new cold-air intake manifold and the exhaust system is also changed – the new one is Magnaflow exhaust.
As the power here is changing, the guys at Petty’s Garage upgraded the brake system. Wilwood six-piston front and four-piston rear brakes were added to the vehicle to carry the stopping power. There is one very impressive thing that makes the ride stand out in a crowd – the exterior. The paint job is done with a custom two-tone Petty Black and Blue. In the rear part of the Mustang we could notice the signature Petty’s Garage rear spoiler. The black wheels are also something that we should say a few words.

These are three-piece VMC forged aluminum rims painted in black. The interior on the other hand is something that will definitely grab your attention.

The winner donated it back as the guy already paid for it $330,000 and crossed the Mecum Dallas auction block again raising another $205,000. In the end of the day the total amount was $535,000 and it was donated to the Paralyzed Veterans of America.
