Ford Holds Massive Celebration For The 10 Millionth Mustang

Muscle Car

It looks like the whole Mustang thing wasn't just a '60s fad.

A few days ago, a leaked photo of what appeared to be a normal-looking Mustang circulated around the internet. Though it looked like any other Mustang, this one was reported to be the 10 millionth car ever produced. As it turns out, this Mustang was indeed special, and Ford has just celebrated the 10 millionth Mustang to roll off of the assembly line at the Flat Rock Assembly Plant in Michigan. The Mustang has been a best-selling sports car since it was introduced in 1964 and it shows no signs of slowing down with the addition of new models like the Shelby GT350 and Bullitt with 480 horsepower.

Interestingly, Ford decided to present the event aimed towards the history of the Mustang rather than the 10 millionth car itself. We know from leaked photos that the this special Mustang is painted in Wimbledon White, a color that was used on the first ever pre-production Mustang convertible. This 2019 GT Convertible features a 460 hp 5.0-liter V8 sending power to a six-speed manual. The car also sports the VIN 001, which pays homage to the first serialized 1964.5 Ford Mustang that featured a 164 horsepower V8 mated to a three-speed transmission.

More than 60 Ford Mustang owners of all model years assembled to spell out the milestone number with their cars, which was then followed by a flyover in a P-51 Mustang vintage fighter plane. Ford also pointed out that with an average length of 15.6 feet, 10 million Mustangs parked end-to-end would stretch out for 29,545 miles – enough to circle the globe with 1,200 miles to spare. The company didn't announce what it plans to do with the 10 millionth Mustang, but we doubt it would simply let such a special car be sold to the public.
