Bidding Open for 1965 Mustangs


Saturday, June 15th, Patrick is pleased to offer a choice between two 1965 Mustangs from his personal automotive collection for auction at the Taste of the Vineyard the Patrons’ Party & Auction. The Taste of the Vineyard, or “The Taste” as it is affectionately known, is a grand 2-night affair that kicks-off the Island’s social season in early June each year, starting with the Gourmet Stroll on Thursday, June 13th. The Taste is not only the most anticipated event on Martha’s Vineyard, but it is also the most important annual fundraiser for the Vineyard Trust as the proceeds are used to restore and maintain the twenty landmarks in the Trust’s stewardship.

We are happy to announce that the Patrons’ Party & Auction is sold out – HOWEVER – for all you car collectors out there that aren’t local to the Island, you will have the opportunity to bid by emailing [email protected] prior to the start of the event on Saturday, June 15 at 5 PM.

Each car is valued in excess of $50,000 and the winning bidder can select either the Raven Black Convertible or the Wimbledon White 2 + 2 Fastback with their winning bid.

Raven Black Convertible

The Raven Black Convertible is a documented car that has been part of a private collection for the past seventeen years. Prior to that, the car was displayed at a nationally known automotive museum. This rare original color combination of raven black with a matching black interior is complemented by a new tan power convertible top. The car’s options include a V8 engine, automatic transmission, ultra-rare factory air conditioning, power steering, rally wheels with dual redline tires and has been recently fully serviced.

Wimbledon White 2 + 2 Fastback

The Wimbledon White 2 + 2 Fastback is also a documented California car for the first fifty years of its life. The car is presented with all of its original papers including its original California license plates. The fully restored car is equipped with a V8 engine, automatic transmission, power steering, rally wheels, dual redline tires, and completely detailed engine bay.

Either car would be a wonderful family addition for island summer cruising.

Now, which one will you choose?
