Packey Webb Ford in Downers Grove, Illinois proudly heralds the “Ford” name because of the quality of the brand’s vehicles, the innovation of the brand’s engineers, and the integrity of the brand itself. Ford has demonstrated its benevolence many times over the years, and the manufacturer’s most recent act of generosity is one of its most impressive yet.
Many manufacturers, including Ford, often allow auto enthusiasts the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be the first person in the world to own a particular vehicle. Bidders will compete — with their wallets, of course — for the bragging rights of owning the very first production line item of hotly-anticipated nameplates.
In March, Ford held an auction to raffle off the very first 2021 Ford Bronco and Mustang Mach 1 from the factory. The 2021 Mustang Mach 1 earned a cool half million on the auction block, while the Bronco VIN 001 – the first Bronco produced by Ford since the ‘90s – commanded over $1 million.
Though it might seem excessive to pay roughly twenty times more than MSRP, the profits from the Bronco and Mach 1 VIN 001 auctions go to charity. The very first Bronco sold benefits the Bronco Wild Fund for forest conservation, and the Mach 1 proceeds went to JDRF.
