The 2014 New York International Auto Show marks the 50th anniversary of the iconic Ford Mustang. To celebrate, Ford ripped apart a 2015 Mustang and reassembled it on top of the Empire State Building to wow onlookers. Also, they created a special edition of the 2015 Mustang to honor the 50 years of continuous production. The 50 Year Limited Edition will go on sale later this fall and be something quite special for buyers.
The 50 Year Limited Edition 2015 Mustang will only be available in GT trim with the 5.0L V8. They will only be producing 1,964 examples of the car to represent the year 1964. Exterior color and transmission choice are the only options that a Mustang purchaser will have on this limited edition.
The buyer will choose from Kona Blue or Wimbledon White. The white was the color that the first Mustang made came bathed in. All 50 Year Limited Edition Mustangs will feature the performance pack. This includes huge Brembo brakes and a performance suspension. Staggered 19″ wheels round out the performance appearance. Whether the driver chooses an automatic or manual transmission, they will receive a limited-slip rear differential as standard.
Unique Design Details
Chrome use was extensive in the 1960s, so Ford designers added a little bit extra to the 2015 Mustang to pay homage to the original. This includes some chrome trim in the front grille as well as the taillights outlined in chrome.
The rear badge will be a faux gas cap with 50th Anniversary and GT on it. There will be other markings on the exterior of the car to show this car’s significance.
Inside, there will be an aluminum plate on the passenger side marking the car as a 50 Year Limited Edition car. That plate will be hand etched at the Flat Rock Assembly Plant in Michigan. The 50 Year logo will also be on the seatbacks.
Interiors will be all black with contrast cashmere leather stitching. Exclusive to the 50 Year Limited Edition, cashmere also exists on the steering wheel and the stitching throughout the interior, including the floor mats. The aluminum trim pieces also receive an axel spin finish.
Lastly, the 50 Year Anniversary Edition Mustang will come with a unique leather portfolio containing the owner’s manual that also has a 50 Year badge on the outside.
We do not know price or when the car will go on sale. Ford says, “fall 2014.” We expect to hear more information over the coming weeks and will pass that information along to you.
