1966 FORD MUSTANG – A Classic American Muscle Car Donation

Wouldn’t this car look great in your driveway? Or top down coasting the highway with you at the wheel? It’s possible. This classic 1966 blue convertible Ford Mustang is up for sale with proceeds benefiting Maine Public Radio (NPR).

A classic American muscle car – it was in the mid 60s the Mustang became associated with true power and performance. This particular car was one of 607,568 ever made. Assembled in Dearborn, Michigan, it had only three previous owners, spending the majority of its life in Florida, then carefully garaged for winters in Maine. The interior and exterior have been restored and engine was rebuilt 10 years ago.

Ford introduced few changes to the ’66 model but what was new included wheels, grille patterns, a new instrument cluster, and color choices. This beauty is Shearwater Blue…a striking combination of light green and light blue.

It’s been said that 1966 is one of the most popular Ford Mustang model years in the history of the car. So whether it’s your first mustang or you’re revisiting an old friend…the chance to make it yours is within reach…and to help a good cause.

A Welcome Ray of Sunshine

1980 triumph spitfire front April 24, 2015
Author: Lisa Crowell

The March of Dimes received a bit of Florida sunshine this month with the donation of a beautiful, yellow 1980 Triumph Spitfire 1500 Coupe. Proceeds from the sale of this little gem will help fund research, community services, education and advocacy to save babies lives from premature birth and birth defects.

The Triumph 1500, originally introduced at the London Motor Show in 19621, was designed by Giovanni Michelotti for Standard-Triumph as a way to compete in the small sports car market that had recently opened around that time. This particular Spitfire model was one of five manufactured 1962-1980. The two-seat, English sports car, was the last and highest produced Spitfire model manufactured during the eight-year run with 95,829 cars hitting the showroom floor 1974-1980.2

The 1980 model was the last and the heaviest of the entire run, weighing in at 1,875 lb. Base prices were $5,995 in the US.3 The last Spitfire rolled off the assembly line in August 1980, shortly before the factory closed. It was never sold and is now displayed at the British Motor Heritage museum at Gaydon.

Donation Checklist: The Many Ways To Make A Diffference

Donating to charity can sometimes feel like a daunting experience. According to the National Center for Charitable Statistics (NCCS), more than 1.5 million nonprofit organizations are registered in the U.S. This number includes public charities, private foundations, and other types of nonprofit organizations, including chambers of commerce, fraternal organizations and civic leagues. With everyone looking for contributions and help it is difficult to know who you should donate to and in what form.

Car Donation Wizard Checklist for Donating:

1. Pick a cause that you feel passionate about. Last summer Car Donation Wizard took part in a Relay for Life event. We are partnered with the American Cancer Society with the  Cars for a Cure program so our staff felt extremely passionate about this event.  Check out  our fundraising success here.

Car Donation Tax Tips 2014

Donating a car can seem like a daunting task but here at Car Donation Wizard  we provide all of the necessary information that our donors need to know before they make that big decision.

Firstly, knowledge is key. There are a lot of car donation programs out there that claim to give high returns to their charity partners, when in reality the charities are lucky to receive 10%-30% of gross proceeds. 

Tip #1 : Ask how much of the proceeds from the sale of your vehicle go back to the charity and it’s missions/cause. Look out for charities or organizations that are partnered with charities that only tell you the net return- this should be red flag number one.
