Which Indiana car sold for $2.8M? | Indianapolis auto auction
- by admin
The Indiana Auto Auction and Auto Club sold a car for $1.9 million on Friday, marking the highest ever auction price for a car at the club.
The car was a 1973 Ford Mustang that had been purchased from a seller who was a relative of Ford’s CEO, Mark Fields.
Fields, who was president of Ford from 1987 to 2017, purchased the Mustang for $400,000 in 1993.
The buyer has since passed away, and the car is not currently registered in the United States, but Fields reportedly planned to sell it at auction.
“Mark Fields was extremely lucky to acquire this car,” the auction house’s vice president of sales and marketing, James J. Davis, told the Indianapolis Star.
The sale of the Mustang came just days after another Ford Mustang sold for a record $1 million at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
A 1977 Chevy Caprice sold for the record $3.2 million.
