Richard Petty Mustang will be auctioned at Barrett-Jackson to benefit Barrow

Lifestyle | 6 Jan |

An exclusive 2015 Ford Petty’s Garage Stage 2 Mustang GT will be auctioned off during the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction, with 100 percent of the hammer price benefiting patient care and research at Barrow Neurological Institute. The custom Mustang GT has been signed and designed by Richard Petty.

The auction will take place at approximately 5 p.m. on Thursday, January 17, 2019 at WestWorld of Scottsdale. The car, one of just 43 built, features a V8 Coyote engine, Roush supercharger, 627hp, 6-speed manual transmission, MagnaFlow exhaust, and custom paint and interior selected by NASCAR driver Richard Petty. The dashboard has been signed by Petty.

The car was donated to Barrow Neurological Foundation by Joe Anderson, chairman of Benovia Winery. Anderson’s family has a long-standing relationship with Barrow Neurological Institute and St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center. His sister was treated by Barrow founder Dr. John Greene, and his brother received care at the institute following a severe horseback riding accident.

“Our family has been helped by Barrow during times of need, and we understand the importance of the institute,” Anderson says. “We have been supporters through events for many years, and when the opportunity came up to help the institute in this way, we thought it would be an appropriate manner to continue our support of Barrow.” 

Proceeds from the auction will benefit patient care, research and medical education at Barrow, one of the world’s leading neuroscience centers that provides care for patients batting debilitating brain and spine disorders.

“We are so grateful to Mr. Anderson for his generous donation, and look forward to seeing the car at auction,” says Katie Cobb, president of Barrow Neurological Foundation. “This gift will support Barrow’s leading brain and spine specialists in their quest to make the impossible possible by developing new treatments for neurological conditions such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, brain tumors, stroke and more.”
