First 2015 Mustang Sold!

First 2015 Mustang Sold at Barrett-Jackson and Mustangs Plus was there!

In 2003, the all-new 2005 Mustang was unveiled to the Mustang Nation and immediately became the poster child for a new generation of loyal Mustang enthusiasts. Following right along in it’s older brothers footsteps, or should I say tire tracks, the all new 2015 Mustang is creating the same “gotta have one!” feelings in a lot of Mustang enthusiasts that the 2005 Mustang created 10 years before. Evidence of that was the bidding on the first production 2015 Mustang to be offered for sale to the public at this years Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction on Saturday, January 18th, 2014.

The production of the first 2015 Mustang has not taken place yet so there was no 2015 Mustang for anyone to take home from the sale. What the bidders were bidding on was the purchase the first 2015 Mustang to be delivered to them when it’s produced later in the year.

The sale of the 2015 Mustang was scheduled to take place at 7:30 pm and that it did. When the hammer came down, Sam Pack of Farmers Branch, Texas, become the first 2015 Mustang owner with his high bid of $300,000.00. Ron Bramlett of Mustangs Plus has had the honor of being able to see the Sam Pack automotive collection and the first 2015 Mustang will fit right in.

With it’s production in the future, Sam Pack can be the first person to equip his 2015 Mustang exactly the way he wants it, in the colors and the options that he prefers. So, we still won’t know what the first 2015 Mustang will look like until later in the year! Make us proud, Sam!

It should also be noted that the sale of the first 2015 Mustang was one of several charity sales to raise money for worthy causes. Sam’s $300,000.00 are going to JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation), a Ford charity for diabetes research. As someone who lives with diabetes, I think it’s a very worthy cause indeed.

    I know Sam Pack as we lived in Dallas, TX for 14 years and are current members of the North Texas Mustang Club. I was on the board for 4 years and past Vice President.
    Sam pack helped support the club in many ways i.e. car displays at his dealerships and donations to the club.

    I have seen his museum where his office is ,what a great collection.

    The two Grabber blue ’69 Shelby’s you see in the picture belonged to Frank and Corky Reynolds. Frank was one of the founding members of NTMC. We just lost Frank about a month ago and Corky several years ago .Sam bought both cars..

    We now live in California and attended your spring show lastt year with our1967 Shelby GT 350t car. Won our class and Best Interior. Great Show by the way…We are also one of your customers.
