Charlie Sheen's NASCAR 1966 Mustang Up For Charity Auction

Follow Nelson

If you had asked us to name which Hollywood celebrity had a custom-built 1966 Mustang convertible prepped with ex-NASCAR gear and a variety of other track-worthy upgrades in 2006, we have to admit, Charlie Sheen wouldn't be anywhere near the top of our list--but that's precisely where this car comes from.

Though it's no longer owned by a tiger-blooded, truth-fueled F-18, this Mustang, decked out in NASCAR-ish spec and a red-and-black theme might still bring in a big chunk of cash for charity.

The current auction page says it would cost $300,000 to replicate the car's current configuration, and while that number seems high to us, the extensive modification list (full specs below) is impressive. From a 358-cubic-inch Winston Cup engine to Wilwood brakes and a fully re-worked suspension, this Mustang is ready for some #winning--on track, of course.

All crack-fueled rant jokes aside, the auction, running from now through November 17 on Charitybuzz, will benefit C5LA, a youth leadership program that guides eigth-graders through high school while helping them make the right decisions for future success.

That's our kind of winning. Check out the full specs below and visit the auction page for more info, or to place a bid. The car currently sits at $100,000.
