Happy 50th Mustang!




Just over a week ago, the Mustang nameplate turned 50 years old. Not many cars can claim the honour and even more importantly, the rich heritage. It found success on the streets, in motor sports and even a few iconic roles. Check out the video below put together by Ford Racing to celebrate 50 years of Mustangs in motor sports.




Ford made sure that no one forgets the anniversary by offering a 50th anniversary limited edition model and only 1964 will be built to pay homage to the year 1964, the year the Mustang was born. It will be offered with every available option on the Mustang GT, except colour and transmission. Customers will pick the colour and an automatic or a manual transmission.  Not only that, Ford also repeated the great feat of putting a Mustang on the 86th floor observation deck of the Empire State building - 1,000 ft high.




There is one "gift card" that Ford might not have been excepting though.. a Happy Birthday from Chevrolet and none at Chevrolet other than the mighty Camaro Z/28. Chevrolet admits that Ford created the pony car segment and that its Camaro is constantly improving thanks to stiff competition from Ford. So whether you are a pony car fan or not, a Mustang fan or not, let's join Chevy and celebrate the 50th anniversary of an automotive icon. Happy Birthday Mustang!
