A LOOK BACK AT FORD’S PERFORMANCE HERITAGE
Barrett-Jackson and Ford have an impressive shared legacy, and both companies certainly know the importance of performance and quality. Collector cars built by Ford Motor Company have long been part of the Barrett-Jackson “scene.” Some of the most noteworthy Ford vehicles to cross the Barrett-Jackson auction block—many raising millions of dollars to benefit worthy charities—have been the famed 1966 Shelby Super Snake Cobra, the last 2014 Ford Shelby GT500 convertible and the first production 2015 Ford Mustang available to the public.
As a primary sponsor of Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auctions for a decade, Ford has played a prominent role at events nationwide. From Ride ’N Drives to exciting lap experiences, attendees have enjoyed unforgettable moments in Ford-built vehicles. And it’s no wonder. As this video illustrates, Ford has a legendary performance heritage that spans almost every racing series around the world. Lessons learned on the race track help influence Ford’s lineup of performance vehicles for consumers.
