Sonny & Cher Custom Ford Mustangs -- Click above for image gallery

It appears that the Sonny & Cher custom Ford Mustangs are once again for sale (the kitschy twosome have been making the auction rounds the last couple years). This pair of 1966 Mustang Convertibles originally built by George Barris were sold in February at RM's Collector Cars of Fort Lauderdale event for $198,000.

Prior to the RM sale, the two Ford-commissioned Mustangs hadn't been on the market for 25 years, and spent a least some of that time in the collection of Mustang Country founder Don Chambers. Originally used in the Sonny & Cher film Good Times, the gold and pink pearl droptops, with animal print, shag carpet, and ermine fur interior fitments went out on a subsequent publicity tour and saw some use by the entertainers. Cher only racked up 19,000 miles, while Sonny's car was the beater of the two, having accumulated 24,000 miles. A restoration has since put the cars back into original Kustom Kar Kondition.

The seller apparently wants to peddle these cars into the UK, lists their location as St. Louis, and provides a Florida phone number for contact purposes, so who knows what's up with all that – especially as the cars don't appear to be listed on eBay Motors U.S. Oh, and the asking price is more than £270,000 (around $450,000), a price that will surely have you singing "Baby Don't Go" to your cash. A tip of the cap to Michael D.

      That reminds me of Adam's CarCast podcast from yesterday.
      Somebody has a car like the one used in Billy Jack (a movie, kids) and he said something along the lines of "Take it to an auction, put a cardboard cut-out of Billy Jack in front of it. No one will know it wasn't in the movie, all those guys are DEAD NOW...."

      I wonder if these cars are for sale again.

      The only thing I'd change would be the animal print seats in Sonny's car, to a tan/white leather combo similar to the black/white leather seats in Cher's car. Other than that, (and the loud pink color of Cher's car) I like the custom work. I have yet to see a Barris design that wasn't cool on at least some measure. I especially like the rear treatment.

      Abomination of a Mustang if ever I saw one. Looks as if a Pontiac Firebird front end was welded on.
