SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – April 4, 2022Barrett-Jackson, The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions, has a longstanding reputation for helping those in need around the world with the sale of charity cars during each of their auctions. Continuing that tradition, Barrett-Jackson will auction two vehicles, one from the George Shinn Collection and one from Mark Pieloch’s American Muscle Car Museum Collection, together as a pair to benefit Samaritan’s Purse and its humanitarian relief efforts in Ukraine.
“We are proud to work with such generous individuals like George and Mark who have graciously donated these two vehicles to support those suffering in Ukraine,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “To date, we have helped raise over $144 million for charitable causes around the world and we are pleased that during our return to Palm Beach this week, we can be a platform for raising funds to support the men, women and children of Ukraine that need it now more than ever.”
Offered from the world-class George Shinn Collection is a 2009 Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake (Lot #3003) that will support Samaritan’s Purse for disaster relief and emergency medical care in Ukraine.

Finished in Vapor Silver Metallic paint, the car features a carbon-composite hood with full-width scoops and hold-down pins, a carbon fiber front splitter, mirror covers and rocker panels. Carroll Shelby signed the black interior of this Super Snake, which is No. 309 built in 2009.

Samaritan’s Purse is a nondenominational evangelical Christian organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world. Since 1970, Samaritan’s Purse has helped meet needs of people who are victims of war, poverty, natural disasters, disease and famine. Through their international crisis response efforts, Samaritan’s Purse has been on the ground in Ukraine providing medical care, food, water and non-food items such as blankets and hygiene kits for those in need. Most recently, on March 23, a fifth Samaritan’s Purse airlift departed carrying more than 19 tons of relief, including medical supplies for area hospitals as they work to strengthen the logistics and supply chain for the suffering medical system in Ukraine.
