WALWORTH, Wis. – Sept. 1, 2015 – With its unmistakable Petty Blue paint job and the sleek design of the 2015 Ford Mustang, a Petty’s Garage-built, 2015 Ford Mustang GT (Lot S148.1) will roll onto Mecum Auction’s signature red carpet and cross the auction block to be claimed by one lucky winning bidder at the Mecum Dallas auction this Sept. 16-19. Donated by Richard Petty and Richard Petty Motorsports, the car will directly benefit the Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA) with 100 percent of the proceeds from its sale serving the organization’s mission.
Member of the NASCAR Hall of Fame and an American icon, “The King” Richard Petty, owner of Petty’s Garage and co-owner of Richard Petty Motorsports, will be at the Mecum auction on Sept. 19 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas to represent the car during its sale and support the PVA.
“It’s important to me that we really support Paralyzed Veterans of America and those who fought for our freedom,” says Petty, a seven-time NASCAR champion. “We have specially built this Ford Mustang in my garage to take out to the Mecum Auction. It has all the performance upgrades you need including over 600 base horsepower and much more. The seats even match my cowboy boots! It’s truly a special piece and one that I hope to see raise a lot of money for the cause.”
Paralyzed Veterans of America, a congressionally chartered veterans service organization founded in 1946, has developed a unique expertise on a wide variety of issues involving the special needs of its members—veterans of the armed forces who have experienced spinal cord injury or dysfunction. Richard Petty Motorsport and Richard Petty have long been supporters of the efforts of the Paralyzed Veterans to support the nation’s veterans following catastrophic injury.
“This is a tremendous gesture by Richard Petty to allow us to raise funds through Mecum Auctions,” says Al Kovach Jr., national president of Paralyzed Veterans of America. “The Petty family, including Richard Petty Motorsports and Petty’s Garage, are great supporters of our Paralyzed Veterans organization and the entire veteran community. We can’t wait for the auction, as we know it will truly make an impact on the lives of so many deserving disabled veterans and see the monies raised help those we serve. We’re grateful for their continued support, and the support of Mecum Auctions in making all of this happen.”
“We’re thrilled to be involved with two highly respected organizations—the Paralyzed Veterans of America and Richard Petty Motorsports—and to help with their shared cause,” comments Mecum Auctions’ President and Founder Dana Mecum. “The Mustang is a great addition to our Dallas lineup, and we’re excited to have ‘The King’ Richard Petty join us at one of our biggest auctions of the year.”
