AutoTrader Classics, the nation's leading online resource for car collectors and classic car enthusiasts, donated a 1969 Ford Mustang Fastback to be rebuilt and then sold on AutoTraderClassics.com, with the proceeds benefiting a worthy non-profit organization.
The Mustang rebuild was featured in an episode on Hot Rod Television and then posted for sale on AutoTraderClassics.com, with the proceeds from the sale benefitting the Alliance of Auto Artisans student mentoring program. The episode aired Saturday, Sept. 24 at 8:30 a.m. ET on Speed TV.
"At AutoTrader Classics, we know how important it is to pass on the love of classic cars to the next generation, which is why we chose to partner with Hot Rod TV and Gateway Classic Mustang for this project," said Marcus Dame, director of AutoTrader Classics. "The Alliance of Auto Artisans' student mentoring program is a great way to reach out to the next generation of hot rodders, and by donating the Mustang and the subsequent proceeds of its sale to the organization, we are hoping to make a real impact on future classic car enthusiasts and builders."
The episode showed how the Alliance of Auto Artisans and Gateway Classic Mustang transformed a 1969 Ford Mustang Fastback into a pro-touring beast packing modern 5.0L Coyote V8 power. The Alliance of Auto Artisans gave two very deserving high school students from the program the chance of a lifetime to help transform the Mustang.
After the episode, the Mustang was listed for sale on www.autotraderclassics.com , and the proceeds from the sale will go to the Alliance of Auto Artisans.
