Galpin Auto Sports will be offering up some of their Mustangs for auction at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale this weekend. We’ve picked out three of them that would make great additions to anyone’s collection.
A rare 1970 Boss 429 is one of only two built with Pastel Blue exterior color and white interior and this car has a Deluxe Marti Report, along with a large binder with original documents and invoices. It recently had a complete engine rebuild to its original specifications as well as a new clutch to complement the close ratio four-speed Top Loader transmission.  This Mustang will be auctioned off on Saturday, January 19 as Lot # 1340.
Fully documented, Galpin Auto Sports offers a 1968 Shelby GT500 KR convertible. This Shelby is a “Brass Hat” car with full Marti Report and is one of only 33 convertibles with air conditioning. Ford took the 428 Cobra Jet engine and reworked it, using special cylinder heads, engine block and specialized internals such as pistons and connecting rods. Ford rated the engine at 335hp. This Shelby will be auctioned off on Saturday, January 19 as Lot # 5050.
Also offered is a Steve Carpenter and Galpin Auto Sports creation, a 2010 Ford Mustang GT Custom Fastback.
