'65 Mustang is this year's Cruisin' the Coast raffle car

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - Thousands of classic cars will roll into South Mississippi this week for Cruisin' the Coast, but there is one car at Centennial Plaza in Gulfport that's already drawing lots of attention.

That car is a red 1965 Ford Mustang convertible, and it can be all yours.

You can buy raffle tickets for a chance to win the car through the week at Centennial Plaza. All proceeds will benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

The winner of the car will be revealed during a drawing on Sunday, Oct. 9.

Cruisin' the Coast Executive Director Woody Bailey said the raffle is something they do every year, and it's a fun activity that benefits a great cause.

"Someone's going to walk away with this car this coming Sunday. It's a raffle ticket for $10 or three for $25. It benefits Make-A-Wish Foundation. We do this every year. It's a beautiful vehicle," said Bailey. "This is a '65 Mustang, one of the very early ones. This one's been restored, and it's a convertible. With the top down and cruising down Hwy. 90, it's fine."
