The VIN is a set of numbers of letters that identifies a specific vehicle. Each section of the code signifies what brand it is, the model year, some of its features, and finally which production number it has. Recently, Ford auctioned off VIN 001 for both the Bronco and Mustang Mach 1. Together, these vehicles brought in $1,575,000 for charity.
Ford sold these unique models at the 2021 Barrett-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale. The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 went first. It was wearing a Fighter Jet Gray color and came equipped with the Handling Package. When all was said and done, it went for a price of $500,000. This money goes to JDRF, which leads the fight against type 1 diabetes.
The next day, the 2021 Ford Bronco First Edition VIN 001 hit the block. The bidding was more intense for this two-door model in a bold Lightning Blue color. It came in the top-tier Badlands trim with the added excitement of the Sasquatch Package. After a flurry of bids, the Bronco earned an impressive $1,075,000. These funds will head towards the National Forest Foundation and Outward Bound.
With these latest auction results, Ford and Barrett-Jackson have raised nearly $13.5 million for charities for the past 15 years.
