The next time I need a car, I’m just going to wait and head to Barrett Jackson. No exaggeration- at the Orange Country show… a fully customized 2012 Mustang GT with super low miles- with the customizations done at a very reputable shop sold for $50,600. 



Per Our Friends at Mustangcars.info

"This 2010 Ford Mustang GT convertible was created by Galpin Auto Sports and featured in Ford’s booth at the 2009 SEMA show in Las Vegas, as well as in Mustangs and Fast Fords Magazine August 2010 issue, Top 10 SEMA Rides for 2009, Mustangs and Fast Fords Magazine Top 10 Mustangs of 2010 and Mustangsand Fast Fords 2010 calendar. Styling features include GAS hand-fabricated, all-metal wide body exterior that adds a total of 6 to the width of the vehicle, as well as a PPG custom two tone gloss black and pearl Grabber Blue paint with silver accents. This is a true American thrill machine. The GAS team added a Ford Racing 550hp supercharger, Ford Racing handling pack, Hurst shifter, JPC 1-piece aluminum driveshaft and a McLeod aluminum flywheel and dual disc clutch. The faster you go, the quicker you are going to need to stop, so GAS installed Wilwood brakes and 20 Forgiato aluminum Mono Leggera Pinzette wheels with high performance Pirelli tires. Interior details include custom leather seats, Ford Racing custom backlit door sill plates and a JL audio sound system with 900 watts. This amazing car is equally exhilarating whether you are on the road with the top down or in the city for a night on the town. Added factory options include navigation, exhaust system and Grant steering wheel. 6,080 original miles."

In a nutshell, Galpin Auto Sports spared no expense when it came to the customization with this Mustang.

The person who won the auction with this vehicle saved a lot of money. The Kelly Blue Book set the value of this car at $28,900 (as of June 2012). Then if you add the customizations, and by the looks of it, it was at least $40,000 worth of work alone (I said $40,000 because GAS basically stripped the car and started all over again). So that marks the total to roughly $68,900 Mustang that was won, but the winner only spent $50,000.

And that's why I'm going to Barrett-Jackson the next time I purchase a vehicle... maybe. 
Remember I do want a Pink Ford Mustang Boss 302 Edition. What are the odds of them having that?
