The 50th Anniversary 1964.5 Mustang Tribute Car at SEMA - booth 24695‏

Share

This Tribute Car will be local during SEMA (in booth 24695) and then will be travelling on a Nationwide Tour throughout 2014 and then ultimately auctioned in January 2015 with proceeds benefitting The National Down Syndrome Society.

The Drake Automotive Group is booth 24695 (Central Hall) and is "60's themed" with all the staff in costume yesterday today (including Scott Drake himself and his son Troy!) and has created quite a stir at SEMA so far!!!

The last 2 days (Thurs & Fri) will be regular "tradeshow style" clothing in the booth...

THE STORY

MUSTANG 50th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS

Scott Drake (Drake Automotive Group - Henderson, NV) and The Mustang Club of America created a special partnership to restore and highlight this car as the “Tribute Car” for the Mustang 50th Anniversary Celebrations.

This special event will be held April 16th -20th 2014 at both The Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Las Vegas, Nevada and The Charlotte Motor Speedway, Concord, North Carolina and featured in one of the Scott Drake booths.

SCOTT DRAKE

Purchased the car and supplied all parts for the restoration.

THE BUILD

Mustangs of East Texas, a Mustang Club of America Regional Group in Tyler, Texas volunteered to restore the car. All the members deserve special recognition for spending so much of their free time working on and creating this beautiful Mustang.

Thank you so much! Without them this project would not have been possible. This club is a wonderful example of everything good about the automotive world.

Great people, working together, helping each other, mentoring new members and sharing automotive enthusiasm!

THE CAMPAIGN:

This Tribute Car will be attending many celebration events in 2014 celebrating the Mustangs 50th Anniversary. (see calendar)

OWN THIS COLLECTABLE AND HELP A WORTHY CAUSE AT THE SAME TIME!

You could be the lucky owner of this convertible Mustang, that is if you’re the highest bidder. In January 2015 the auction will be held in Scottsdale AZ by one of the premiere auction companies.

Drake Automotive Group has given the title to The National Down Syndrome Society in which they will receive 100% of the funds when the Tribute Car is auctioned.
