A very special Ford Mustang from 1965 is now being sold – at least when it comes to history. The bright red V8 Mustang once owned by Sylvester Stallone was featured in the movie Lock Up.
Sylvester Stallone, 77, is one of the most famous actors in recent decades, immortalized in roles such as boxer Rocky Balboa and super soldier John Rambo. But he’s also a big car enthusiast. One of Stallone’s cars is now being sold on the auction site Katawiki.
It’s a bright red Ford Mustang from 1965. Sylvester Stallone bought the car on November 25, 1989. He also starred in the movie Lock Up, where Stallone played one of the main roles with Donald Sutherland. The Mustang was destroyed in the prison yard, but this car appears to have survived in perfect condition.
The Mustang has a 200-horsepower V8 engine and is now available in Germany. It should be registered in Europe, but otherwise it’s ready to hit the roads. There is a dent and the fuel gauge doesn’t work, but it looks like it can be fixed easily.
Getting a Mustang with a famous history costs an extra penny. The car in question ranges between 800,000 and 900,000 SEK. At the moment, the bid value is around SEK 700,000. The auction ends on Saturday.
