Ford”s tradition of supporting young aviators through the Young Eagles program of the Experimental Aircraft Association logged another significant milestone Thursday, as the one-off Mustang created by both Jack Roush and Carroll Shelby netted $375,000 at an auction at the EAA AirVenture program. This auction came on the heels of Roush”s airplane crash at the site, from which the legendary tuner still has not recovered.
Refresher: The Mustang SR-71″s power comes with a 5.0 L V8 supplemented by a 2.3 L supercharger and a special Roush intake, with a special paint job, glass roof, and custom 21 inch wheels. The only one of its kind, this Mustang had the signatures of both Jack Roush and Carroll Shelby on the seats- the only time this has ever, and likely will ever, occur.
