Ford Mustang Celebrates 50th Birthday With Guinness World Records Title

Stocks in this article: F

Over five decades, Mustang has become one of the most popular cars worldwide, with more than 9 million units sold and more than 6.2 million Facebook fans.

Fifty years ago today, Mustang went on sale, after being introduced ahead of the 1964 World’s Fair in New York. Across the globe, fans have been celebrating the milestone.

Yesterday and today, Ford is displaying a 2015 Mustang convertible on the observation deck of the Empire State Building in Manhattan. Mustang Club of America is marking the birthday with convoys of Mustangs road-tripping across the country and culminating in celebrations at Charlotte Motor Speedway in North Carolina and Las Vegas Motor Speedway in Nevada. A Ford employee celebration is happening today at Ford World Headquarters in Dearborn, Mich.

2015 Ford Mustang

Available globally for the first time, the 2015 Mustang is the most advanced version yet, with a sleek new design for the fastback and convertible. The car is backed by world-class performance from several engine options, including a new turbocharged 2.3-liter EcoBoost ® and an upgraded 5.0-liter V8 producing more than 420 horsepower. Customers can opt for state-of-the-art connectivity technologies, including an advanced driver-assist system, track apps, launch control and more.

The 2015 Ford Mustang goes on sale this fall in North America.
