Huge day for Ford fans! Today, Randall Reed’s Planet Ford in Humble wishes the Ford Mustang a Happy 50th birthday! In celebration, we invite you to take the drive on Hwy. 59 to test drive one of these amazing cars for yourself.
As part of the celebration, yesterday, Ford announced at the New York International Auto Show a tribute to a half century of Mustangs. Ford is releasing the all-new 50-Year Limited Edition of the 2015 Mustang GT fastback. There are only 1,964 vehicles being created. This is one of the most unique and rare Mustangs being manufactured to date. The commemorative Mustang is available in Wimbledon White or Kona Blue. This special ‘Stang is set to make its way to market later this year.
The release of this rare Mustang represents a special moment for Ford. The company has been diligently manufacturing and improving the iconic muscle car since 1964. “When Mustang was approved for development more than 50 years ago, I don’t think anyone imagined it would spawn such a dedicated base of fans around the world and still be in production today,” said Bill Ford, executive chairman, Ford Motor Company. “We are thrilled to be here in New York – where Mustang was first shown to the public at the 1964 World’s Fair – to re-create that historic event for today’s Mustang enthusiasts.”
The 50-Year Limited Edition put it all out on the table. Ford designers and engineers started with a 2015 Mustang GT fastback complete with performance pack. They then added several features to make it a truly unique rendition of the classic American icon. In fact, this edition comes standard with every option that Ford offers.
The only decision the buyer will have to deal with is the color and transmission options. The 50-Year Limited Edition takes several design cues from early renditions of the Mustang, including the proprietary Wimbledon White paint, chrome trim stylings and rear window design.
These features are just the tip of the iceberg for the 50 Year Limited Edition. Once in the driver’s seat, it’s easy to see that this isn’t your ordinary 2015 Mustang GT fastback. The dashboard is adorned with an elegant aluminum trim, giving this model a special look that you can’t find anywhere else. After sinking into the comfy two-tone cashmere/leather seats, you can grip the wheel and to find a cashmere-stitched, leather-wrapped steering wheel with similar stitching found throughout the vehicle.
