Galpin Auto Sports ( proudly announced today that a one-off, 2012 wide-body Mustang it built for SPX Corporation (, sold with no reserve at the 41st Annual Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction in Scottsdale, Ariz. Friday, January 20 for $160,000 with all of the proceeds benefitting the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

The hand-built custom Mustang was presented for auction in Scottsdale after making appearances at a number of high-profile auto shows across the country including the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show and the SEMA Show in Las Vegas. After nationwide promotional efforts, which included features in a variety of print, digital and broadcast outlets, the car was ready to raise money for children in need when it arrived on stage on Friday evening.

"The Scottsdale auction Barrett-Jackson hosts each year is a premiere venue for specialty hot rods and collector cars to be sold," said Galpin Auto Sports President Beau Boeckmann. "We are excited to be given the opportunity to bring one of our labors of love to this high profile auction block with the promise of raising money for cancer research. We're proud to have been part of this project and hope the new owner enjoys this great vehicle and thank them for contributing to such a worthwhile cause."

To create the special car, GAS looked to the 1969 Mustang BOSS 429 for inspiration. Part of that inspiration included a hand fabricated all-metal wide-body that stretches the vehicle nine inches wider than a stock Mustang, giving the car an even more aggressive look. The larger bodywork required bigger wheels and tires to proportionately fit the new profile of the car. After being lowered with Ford Racing performance springs, Forgiato 22x14 rear and 21x11 front three-piece GTR wheels were mated to 335/25/22 and 295/25/21 Pirelli tires.

The vehicle's stance and performance-inspired design were further complimented by a Ford Racing supercharger boosting engine output to more than 700HP. Inside, custom red suede and black leather trim and upholstery with suede headliner were also added to enhance the interior. Additionally, the Mustang features a Bassani Performance exhaust system, custom formulated PPG paint, a 1000-watt JL Audio system and many other unique items that make this Mustang one-of-a-kind.

This year marks the third consecutive year that SPX Corporation has donated a car to sell at Barrett-Jackson's auction in Scottsdale to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. As in years past, Barrett-Jackson donated all its customary fees allowing all of the proceeds to benefit St. Jude.

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is internationally recognized for its pioneering work in finding cures and saving children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. St. Jude is the first and only pediatric cancer center to be designated as a Comprehensive Cancer Center by the National Cancer Institute. Founded by late entertainer Danny Thomas and based in Memphis, Tenn., St. Jude freely shares its discoveries with scientific and medical communities around the world. In 2010, St. Jude was ranked the most trusted charity in the nation in a public survey conducted by Harris Interactive, a highly respected international polling and research firm.
