Last month at the New York International Auto show Ford unveiled their beautiful 50th anniversary edition mustang to a very excited crowd. (Check out the footage on our Facebook page below.)
Empire State Building & The 2015 Mustang
They built excitement and anticipation by also pulling off a stunt that has not been performed in over 50 years when the first Mustang was released. The company decided to create buzz with the new Mustang by putting it atop the Empire State Building, just like they did back in 1964. You may wonder, how did they get the Mustang up there? They actually had a team to cut the car into small enough pieces where they could bring it up 86 floors to the top.
50th Anniversary Edition Mustang Convertible
Fast forward a month and Ford has just announced that they will be auctioning off a one-off 50th anniversary edition convertible. The vehicle will raffled off at Woodward’s Dream Cruise on August 16th and all proceeds will benefit the National MS Society. This convertible will be the same Wimbledon White as we saw in New York and will feature a chrome-accented grille and tail-lamps, aluminum dash trim, two-tone black and beige interior leather seats and 19-spoke wheels. If you are interested in attending the raffle, to be held in Southeast Michigan, you will need to purchase a ticket which run $20.00 a piece from Ford Motor Company while supplies last. Ford says “this will be the only 2015 Mustang convertible built with a performance pack to include Pirelli P Zero summer tires, Brembo six-piston painted front brake calipers, and a limited-slip differential.” We look forward to seeing the 2015 Mustang 50th Anniversary Edition Coupe on our show floors this summer!
