Enthusiasts Immaculate Collection of Every Year Fox-Body Mustang Heads to Auction
Ford likely revealing Bullitt Mustang at Detroit Auto Show
This on top of the likely Barrett-Jackson auction Jan. 19.We reported earlier this week that the Bullitt was likely to appear Jan. 19 at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Ariz., where Ford is selling a "special new Ford Mustang" with proceeds to benefit the Boys Republic, a school for troubled teens in Chino Hills, Calif., from which McQueen graduated in 1946 and where he visited throughout his movie career.
A collection, which includes one of every year 5.0L Fox-body, is heading to Barrett-Jackson, Scottsdale next week. Dennis Collins is selling 18 Mustangs, ranging from 1979 to 1993, all with no reserve and each with less than 20,000 original miles. Every Mustang is a beautiful execution of the original model and each one showroom fresh.
Ford Confirms 2019 Mustang Shelby GT500 With Over 700 HP
A brand new teaser from the Blue Oval says the super Shelby will return in 2019. It seems Ford is pulling out all the stops for its Mustang fans ahead of the 2018 Detroit Auto Show.

Collins is back again, after setting six Barrett-Jackson records last year in Scottsdale, he's setting up to do the same this year. Last year, six of the eight Mustangs he sold broke records for each year and model of Mustang, respectively. Last year the records included a 1994 Mustang convertible, which sold for $44,000 and a 1985 SVO hatchback in Jalapeo Red with 7 actual miles, it sold for $63,800. Then there was the 1990 model GT 7UP Limited Edition, which sold for a whopping $82,500.
Collins, who is known for selling Jeep parts with Collins Bros Jeep, is an avid collector/flipper, and friends of the Gas Monkey Garage crew. For this year's collection, Collins has included one of every year, except for the1980 and 1981 model, as there wasn't a 5.0L option those years.
Florida man selling ’87 Mustang Batmobile
<p>Oh, Florida. May God bless thee in all of your inexhaustible, epic weirdness</p>In recent years we've seen a number of variants of this comic book- and TV-derived superhero cruiser, from a full-size Lego version, a Lamborghini-powered carbon fiber treatment and even a drag race pitting replica versions of the 1966 Batmobile against its 1989 update. The original 1966 Batmobile, built out of a 1955 Lincoln Futura concept car, sold back in 2013 for $4.6 million.
"I don't really have any expectations. The goal wasn't to set records, but to have the best collection I could find," said Collins. "Our parameters were they had to be documented and have less than 20,000 miles. Most of them even have the original tires."
Collins explained the collector Mustangs like Roush and Shelby models often have well documented paper trails, but not the Fox-bodies. "We focused on trying to find cars that were heavily documented," said Collins, "Logistically, to pull this off was very difficult, to get them all detailed, serviced, documented and shipped to the auction. Then to have an hour and a half of TV time to sell them consecutively was difficult as well." The cars will go back to back on Sunday on the Velocity channel at 1:30pm.
With "no reserve," on any Mustang, Collins does run the risk of losing money on this auction, "Just simply the math of getting them transported and entry fees is a huge amount of money," said Collins who expressed his nervousness of the sale.

When GM initially conceived of the Chevy II in response to Ford's Falcon, they aimed right for the middle of the bell curve in order to appeal to as many buyers as possible. The Chevy II was introduced in 1962 and it was immediately clear that they hit the bull's-eye, creating a […]
