Barrett-Jackson and Mustangs seem to go hand-in-hand, especially special edition Mustangs. We just told you about the one-off Roush BlackJack Mustang convertible that will be going across the block, and there was the pair of bitchin' OCC Eleanor GT500 E Mustangs that set Westworld rockin' in January, only to be topped by the pair of black Bosses a little while later. And who can forget the other Shelby specials that have brought outrageous amounts for the right to get car number one? The first GT500 went for $600,000 last year. The first Shelby GT matched it. In all fairness, those bids were more about giving to Carroll's charity than getting the car itself, as good as those 'Stangs might be.

And now we get word that Ford is going to do it again. It plans to debut a new Mustang special edition at the upcoming Barrett-Jackson Auction in Palm Beach this weekend. The only details we have right now are that the car will be limited to just 500 copies and that the rights to car number one will likely bring a huge number for the Carroll Shelby Children's Foundation. We're guessing it will be a Shelby GT convertible, but wouldn't be surprised to see a Boss 302, Mach 1, Bullitt or even a GT350 roll across the stage on Saturday. Any predictions?

      YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Lets see the Bullit!

      Actually lets make it a Boss. I want a Bullit and probably would not be able to get one with a only 500 being made.

      Any clues on this site?

      I saw this pop up on a website, and it's one of those retardedly elaborate marketing campaigns that makes no sense whatsoever. I checked who registered the domain, and guess who...its FoMoCo. If you click the beaker thing on the left, the date also matches up with the Barrett-Jackson Auction. Someone with more patience than I should peruse the site for clues.

      BTW I would be surprised and bummed if it did turn out to be a Shelby GT Convertible because Shelby already unveiled a GT-H Convertible Prototype last October.

      The Mustang must have more SE's than any other car..ever. What 1,2, and 3 or Larry, Moe, and Curly apparently does not get is Ford does not make all of these. Duh. People love the Mustang. So yeah, plenty people care. I wish it was 2009 already because next to my paid off F150 will be a Mustang!

      More importantly does anyone care. How many special editions can you make before you say enough already.
      • 7 Years Ago
      Yes. The Mustang GT April 2007 Edition.

      Seriously...

      If you put all of the Special Editions together... they're not so special anymore.

      Just more marketing blah blah blah...

      I bet it is a 600+ HP Shelby GT500KR
