It’s a ’65 fastback with 5.7-litre V8, and could be yours for just a few quid
12 July 2007

Ford’s first generation Mustang is rare enough in the UK to attract serious interest when you see one, as well as some serious price tags. The better-condition, more exotic models often change hands for more than £50,000. However, you could get your hands on one for the price of a bottle of beer. A bottle of American beer, obviously.As part of a special promotion, Budweiser is giving away a yellow and black, 1965 Ford Mustang fastback, complete with its 300bhp, 5.7-litre V8 engine and Shelby-style Magnum 500 wheels.Anyone who buys one of their promotional ‘Budbucks’ cans or bottles of beer stands a chance of winning it; all you need do is log on to, enter the special code from your bottle or can, and use the ‘BudBucks’ currency it gives you to bid on the car.It’s a reverse auction; on 5 August, the person with the lowest unique bid wins the car. And here’s the bit we really like; you’re bidding with made-up money. It’d be like buying a hotel on Mayfair with Monopoly money. Or a $100,000 condominium on Lake Placid for a solitary $5 dollar bill.
