This time, the Blue Oval manufacturer is selling the last retail 2014 Shelby GT500 Convertible at the Hot August Nights Auction organized by Barrett-Jackson to benefit the Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA). The vehicle will be auctioned off at no reserve and the winning bidder will get to choose any interior, exterior and stripe color combination offered by Ford on the 2014 Shelby.

The custom GT500 will also be signed by famed Indy 500 winner Parnelli Jones, who will attend the event on behalf of the Brain Injury Association of America.

“With 662 horsepower, superb handling and a 0-60 time below 4.0 seconds, the Shelby GT500 is already one of the world’s greatest muscle cars,” says Steve Ling, North America car marketing manager for Ford. “So, while the thrill of owning such a rare and important car is certainly appealing, the owner of this convertible will also help further critical research needed to treat serious brain trauma. We’re honored to support Parnelli and the organization’s efforts.”
