Next month, Ford is proud to celebrate 50 years of pony production by once again bringing the famed American icon to the top of another famed American Icon, The Empire State Building. After performing this same feat half a century ago, Ford is recreating this one-of-a-kind photoshoot with their all-new 2015 Mustang.
Since it’s introduction and subsequent Empire State visit in 1964, the Mustang has been a world-wide icon for classic American muscle cars. Ford debuted the original Mustang in New York City, and the company can’t wait to return the ‘Stang to the Big Apple for a nostalgic trip to one of the world’s most recognizable buildings. “New York is one of the greatest cities in the world, and it’s the place where the Ford Mustang story began 50 years ago,” said Mark Fields, Ford chief operating officer. “We’re thrilled to be visiting the architectural landmark that has been the heart of the Manhattan skyline for 83 years with the newest generation of the car that is the soul of Ford Motor Company.”
Despite countless technological improvements, getting a huge hunk of American muscle to the top of an 86-story building in the middle of a densely crowded city is not exactly simple. Ford staff will seek to complete their task using the same method as before by dismantling the car to pieces that will fit in the elevator, then reconstructing the car on the top deck.
If you plan on being in NYC in the near future, you can check out the all-new 2015 Mustang atop the Empire State Building on April 16 and 17th from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Lookout for the 2015 Mustang at Randall Reed’s Planet Ford in Humble (also servings Kingwood, Conroe, and greater Houston) later this year, or click around our current inventory by visiting www.PlanetFord59.com
