The Rotary Club of Bailey’s Crossroads is raffling off a 1965 Ford Mustang convertible named “Black Beauty.” This is the 30th anniversary of the club’s vintage Mustang raffle, which is its major fundraising project.
“Black Beauty” is a classic, totally restored head-turner and is meant to be driven. It has a 289 cubic inch V-8 engine, automatic transmission, power brakes, power steering, power top, air conditioning, a “raven black” paint job, “black pony” interior, and a black convertible top. The winner of the raffle has a choice of the car or $20,000.
Tickets can be purchased online or at many local events and venues where the Mustang will be on display. Raffle tickets are $25 each or $100 for five. The drawing will be held Sept. 13 at the Virginia Wine Festival in the The Plains. There will be two additional $500 cash prizes. You do not need to be present to win.
