As we mentioned last week, the upcoming March Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction is shaping up to be quite the event indeed with a number of VIN 001s being auctioned off for charity. The 2021 Ford Bronco 2-door VIN 001 (preview) and 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 VIN 001 (preview) will both be on the auction block, along with the 2021 RAM TRX VIN 001 and the HUMMER EV Edition VIN 001 (preview) and the first production 2020 Mid-Engine C8 Chevrolet Corvette convertible (preview). The Scottsdale Auction will be held at WestWorld of Scottsdale, March 20-27, 2021.

“The 2021 Ford Bronco 2-door VIN 001 and 2021 Mustang Mach 1 VIN 001 are born from two of the world’s most fabled vehicles,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “The return of these two models is among the most celebrated of our time. I’m really excited about both of these reborn icons selling on our auction block and, since I own a vintage Bronco myself, am particularly interested to see what VIN 001 of the new model will bring. These two vehicles will help write collector car history as part of our Scottsdale docket, which features the most VIN 001 and first-production vehicles ever offered at a single auction.”

After a 17-year hiatus, the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 VIN 001 has returned as the modern pinnacle of style, handling and V8 pony car performance. This limited-edition Mach 1 features a 480-horsepower engine mated to a 6-speed manual transmission and the track-ready Handling Package. Clad in Fighter Jet Gray, which is exclusive to the Mustang Mach 1, the exterior features a new front fascia, exclusive wheels, orange accents and special edition badges that celebrate its 50-plus year heritage.

The total sale price of the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 VIN 001 will benefit JDRF’s efforts against type 1 diabetes.

“Ford perfectly incorporated the spirit of the original Bronco and Mustang Mach 1 into their latest models,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “While each is purpose-built for the track or off-road, both remain true to their heritage. We couldn’t be prouder to work with Ford on the sale of these two legendary vehicles. Not only will they make history as VIN 001s, but their sales will drive change through the charities they benefit for years to come.”

To date, Barrett-Jackson says it’s helped raise more than $127 million for more than 130 local and national charitable organizations.
