Penny Hardaway had plenty of money after being drafted out of Memphis back in the early 1990s. Enough, apparently, to fix up at least one classic car. A 1965 Ford Mustang Fastback he once owned is now up for bid on eBay.
According to the current owner, Desert Auto Sport of Phoenix, Hardaway spent $30,000 with 310 Motoring out of Los Angeles to get the car the way he wanted it. It’s currently being offered for $28, 995 with offers also being taken.
The vehicle still has the original motor and 4-speed manual transmission but has been repainted silver.
A massive sound system is included but Desert Auto says the ’65 Mustang’s best feature is the interior. Hardaway, it seems, put wall-t0-wall white leather and blue suede or trim throughout the entire car.
Long-time hoop fans will remember the Lil’ Penny TV ads featuring the voice of Chris Rock that touted Nike shoes Hardaway wore. The white/blue motif in the 1965 Mustang reflects the color, style and logo of the sneakers from back in the day.
Hardaway played for the Orlando Magic, the Phoenix Suns, and finished his career with Miami Heat who released him in late 2007.
The 1965 Mustang auction runs until the first week of March.
