Wanna Buy Penny Hardaway’s 1965 Ford Mustang?

$50 Off $250 at Steiner Sports with code JETER50

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.

1965 Ford Mustang Fastback Penny HardawayAccording 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.

Why?

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.
