Ford will auction off the final production model of its 50 Years Limited Edition 2015 Ford Mustang later this month in Las Vegas.

Carrying badge No. 1,964 that signifies the limited number of special edition Mustangs to be built, the Mustang will be sold at the Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas auction set for Sept. 25-27. All proceeds will benefit the Henry Ford Health System's Edith and Benson Ford Heart & Vascular Institute. Ford first introduced the Mustang in 1964.

“Ford Mustang inspires passion like no other car,” said Raj Nair, Ford group vice president, Global Product Development. “The visceral look, sound and performance of Mustang resonates with people, even if they’ve never driven one. Mustang is definitely more than just a car – it is the heart and soul of Ford Motor Company.”

Each limited-edition car features a plaque on the instrument panel engraved with a serial number and the signature of Ford Motor Company Executive Chairman Bill Ford. A version of this Mustang will be displayed publicly at the Get Your Heart Racing Pit Party sponsored by Crest Automotive Group, Friday, Sept. 12 at Eastern Market in Detroit.

Based on the 2015 Mustang GT fastback with performance package, the 50 Years Limited Edition model is designed to provide customers with outstanding performance and a unique appearance that will be instantly recognizable.
