The last generation of the Ford Mustang has already spawned in a bunch of special edition versions and one of them is this Lee Iacocca 45th Anniversary Mustang that was unveiled back in July, 2009 as a commemorative model dedicated to the 45th anniversary of the Mustang’s introduction in 1964 at the World’s Fair.

This model was first auctioned off at the Galpin Ford, located in Van Nuys, California where Steve Sularski won the bidding, agreeing to pay $125,000. Now, Lee Iacocca is auctioning off his own personal car and the winner will not only drive home with this special edition, but he will have the chance to have lunch with the living legend.
