NEW YORK – Ford is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Mustang with a limited-edition model and a display atop the Empire State Building.
At the New York International Auto Show on Wednesday, the company revealed the Mustang 50 Year Limited Edition. New York is also where the Mustang was first shown, at the 1964 World’s Fair.
To symbolize that year, the company will build only 1,964 of the 50 Year cars.
If you don’t like this car, you don’t like cars, said Executive Chairman Bill Ford, whose first car was an electric green 1975 Mustang.
Limited Edition cars will be among the first built when 2015 Mustang production begins this year. The company hasn’t yet decided how to allocate them or what the price will be. In 1964, the Mustang’s starting price was $2,300.
