Quaker State’s ‘Best In Class’ Challenge Vehicle Sells For $20,000

The 1996 Ford Mustang was restored by the students at Jordan Vocational High School in Columbus, Georgia.


The Quaker State “Best in Class” Challenge vehicle, a 1996 Ford Mustang, was sold for $20,000 on Jan. 16 at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Arizona.

The Mustang was restored by the students at Jordan Vocational High School in Columbus, Georgia. The vehicle was previously auctioned off at two other Barrett-Jackson shows ­– West Palm Beach and Mohegan Sun. Both times, the vehicle was generously donated back by the winning bidder.

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

Getting nostalgic about the good old days is easy, but many forget the struggles of the day.

Last month, I purchased a 1982 Chrysler New Yorker for $1,500. The car was previously owned by a technician who was moving to Arizona. It had 67,000 original miles. It would be my “beater with a heater” for this winter.

Under the hood is a 318 V8 with a Lean Burn feedback carburetor with a rudimentary engine control module attached to the air cleaner. The system could adjust the spark advance, change metering in the carburetor and even open a solenoid to vent the evaporative emissions from the fuel tank.
