We’re not entirely sure why, but it appears Tampa Bay Devil Rays third baseman Evan Longoria plans to part with his gorgeous 1971 Ford Mustang Mach I next month at Mecum Auctions in Kissimmee, Florida. So if you’re in the market for a piece of American muscle, then we suggest you listen up because this one is sure to go fast.
Initially, the ’71 Mustang was meant to serve as a tribute to the then discontinued 1970 Shelby GT500. However, the Mach I took the tribute to a whole new level, boasting similarities such as the Shelby scoops, spoiler, and taillights in its design. Under the hood is no joke either, as this puppy features a supercharged 502 CI Chevrolet Ram jet engine. Additional perks include a Corvette 6-speed transmission, eight-inch body line extension, a paint job inspired by the movie Gone In 60 Seconds, Sparco Italian leather racing seats, and a 10-point roll cage among many others thanks to over 2,600 hours invested in fabricating this ride. The auction is set for January 6-15 and it’s expected to sell between $95,000 and $125,000. Good luck. [H/T: Maxim]
