Let’s be honest here and agree that if you’re not a fan of the Mustang then you’re in the wrong shall we? After all, with Ford finally introducing a Mustang for us Europeans a few short years ago, this is a car that has rapidly risen to the top of many a car fan’s wish list. The following is shared direct from Ford themselves and once again shows how proud they are of the Pony Car’s legacy.
A special “Happy Birthday” treat
How would Mustang celebrate its own 55th birthday? With cake… or with something that has a bit more of a Mustang attitude? Listen very carefully and you might even hear that the exhausts are joining the party with a V8-inspired rendition of the classic “Happy Birthday” song.
LEGO Creator Mustang build
A 1967 Ford Mustang is the latest automotive model to be released in LEGO’s Creator series; boasting more than 1,400 pieces and coming with options to customise. With details including a rear axle that can be “jacked up” to a detailed engine bay beneath opening bonnet, the model is a great challenge for Mustang fans and LEGO enthusiasts alike. Ford put it to the test, capturing the four-hour build in a special time-lapse video.
Global Cars & Coffee meet
At Ford locations in the UK and Germany on Wednesday April 17 – 55 years to the day that the Ford Mustang officially went on sale – Mustang owners came together for a celebratory meet. On the same day, Ford locations in Canada, China, Lebanon, Mexico, UAE and USA also hosted Mustang owners and their vehicles.
In Dunton, UK, 66 enthusiasts brought their Mustangs along and joined four brand new models and classics from Ford’s own heritage collection. A selection then parked up to reveal a “55” formation from the air.
