'Best In Class Challenge' Car Sells For 65K At Barrett-Jackson

‘Best In Class Challenge’ Car Sells For 65K At Barrett-Jackson

The "Best in Class Challenge" was a 6-week automotive education competition featuring high school auto shop classes across the United States.


SOLD! The Quaker State “Best in Class Challenge” vehicle, a 1996 Ford Mustang, was sold for $65,000 this weekend at the Barrett Jackson Northeast auction at Mohegan Sun. The “Best in Class Challenge” was a 6-week automotive education competition featuring high school auto shop classes across the United States. Each school’s team was charged with the task of tuning, restoring and customizing a pre-owned car into a pristine, creative representation of their school. The winning school was given the opportunity to auction off their vehicle at a Barrett-Jackson auction.


The Mustang that was restored by the students at Jordan Vocational High School in Columbus, Georgia is no stranger to the auction block! Back in April, the students proudly auctioned the revamped vehicle at Barrett Jackson’s West Palm Beach event which sold for $50,000 before being donated back for auction at Mohegan Sun!


So far, the school has raised $115,000 for their automotive program and it won’t stop there! The winning bidder this weekend followed suit and also donated the car back, allowing Quaker State and the students to bring the car to Barrett-Jackson’s Las Vegas auction in October.

The Quaker State “Best in Class Challenge” program has given these students the confidence in their ability to work in the automotive industry and the motivation to continue to succeed and follow their dreams.
