2023 Classic Car Raffle

Prize: 1966 Ford Mustang, professionally appraised at $46,000.00
Draw Date: August 12, 2023
Lottery Licence #: RAF1293325

The first-generation Ford Mustang was manufactured by Ford from March 1964 until 1973. The introduction of the Mustang created a new class of automobiles known as the pony cars. The Mustang’s styling, with its long hood and short deck, proved wildly popular and inspired a host of competition.

This original, automatic 1966 Ford Mustang has never been winter driven and is rust-free. The interior is in incredible condition. The exterior features a 90% original vintage burgundy paint. The wheels feature original, custom mag rims with tires in new condition.
