Barrett-Jackson to Auction VIN 001 2024 Ford Mustang Dark Horse in Scottsdale with 100% of the Hammer Price Benefiting JDRF

SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ. – JAN. 24, 2024 – Barrett-Jackson, The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions, will continue its longstanding tradition of offering VIN 001 vehicles for charity with the sale of the 2024 Ford Mustang Dark Horse VIN 001 (Lot #3003) during the 2024 Scottsdale Auction held January 20-28, at WestWorld of Scottsdale. One hundred percent of the hammer price of the all-new Mustang, which will cross the auction block at approximately 6:30 PM MT on Saturday, January 27th, will benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).

“I’m excited to once again team up with Ford Motor Company to offer a VIN 001 production vehicle on the auction block for charity here in Scottsdale,” said Craig Jackson, CEO and Chairman of Barrett-Jackson. “This 500-horsepower fastback Mustang is particularly special because it’s the first production vehicle that wears a new nameplate for the Ford Mustang in 21 years. Vehicles that represent the birth of new generation of vehicles offer promising collectability over time. I look forward to being a part of history when this vehicle crosses the block to benefit Ford’s long-standing commitment to finding a cure for type 1 diabetes.”

The heart of 2024 Ford Mustang Dark Horse VIN 001 (Lot #3003) is an all-new fourth-generation Coyote 5.0-liter V8 engine with a dual air-intake box and throttle-body design. The engine sends 500 horsepower and 418 ft/lbs of torque to a 6-speed TREMEC manual transmission. This Ford Mustang Dark Horse includes coolers for the transmission, engine oil and rear axle, and improved engine cooling capability.

Inside the Ford Mustang Dark Horse is the most technologically advanced, driver-centric cockpit of any Mustang yet. From a flat-bottomed steering wheel to a 12.4-inch digital instrument cluster with customizable screens, the car delivers an extraordinary driving experience. Special-order equipment on VIN 001 includes RECARO seats, a painted hood and accent stripes, and both optional Handling and Appearance packages.

“Barrett-Jackson’s charitable endeavors tops the list of our many accomplishments over the decades,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “We value our special relationship with Ford Motor Company, who has generously donated several VIN 001 vehicles over the years to benefit JDRF, a cause that’s close to the hearts of everyone at the company. This VIN 001 Mustang Dark Horse will join a legacy of ‘first’ production Fords crossing the block to support charity.”

One hundred percent of the hammer price from the sale of the Dark Horse Mustang VIN 001 will benefit JDRF, whose mission is harnessing the power of research, advocacy, and community engagement to advance life-changing breakthroughs for type 1 diabetes (T1D).
