Shelby GT500 for Wounded Warrior Project



If you find yourself near Jupiter, Florida, you’re not far from one of the greatest Mustang collections the world over—Jack Miller’s renowned Mustang Barn. The expansive ‘Stang assemblage includes 69 of the legendary pony cars, most of which are of seriously high performance caliber.

This red, white, and blue 2011 Shelby GT500 is one of that family, but it won’t be for long. Jack Miller, also the founder of the Miller’s Ale House restaurants, has announced he will auction off the Shelby with all proceeds going toward the Wounded Warrior Project—an association that this Mustang wears proudly.

“I have 69 Mustangs, but this Mustang and the charity auction, means a lot to me,” said Miller in a statement. “It goes beyond the automobile; it comes from my heart. It’s for the soldiers.”

In 2012, Miller purchased the Shelby GT500 at the Barrett-Jackson auction, which had toured over 15,000 miles and stopped in each of the “Lower 48” states where it was signed by veterans, family, and friends. Around 2,000 handwritten notes span the car, from heartfelt “thank yous” to “God Bless our Troops,” and two are said to be from football legends Joe Namath and Dan Marino.

It’s a heartwarming display of national pride and support for those who serve…and it also happens to be one truly potent Mustang. Underneath the hood of the GT500 lies an aluminum 5.4-liter supercharged V8 that pumps out 550 horsepower and 510 lb.-ft. of torque. Shift work is handled by a six-speed manual. It’s not a car to be taken lightly.

“The support being offered by the Miller family is remarkable,” said Steve Nardizzi, chief executive officer at WWP, in a statement. “We are extremely grateful for their generous donation, which is providing us with the critical resources that we need to honor and empower Wounded Warriors, and make an impact in the lives of the veterans that we serve.”

The eBay charity auction began on October 16 and will conclude on the 26th. The flag-emblazoned Shelby remains one of the final cars in search of a home as the Mustang Barn sadly closes its doors at the end of the month.
