Just 1,964 units will be built, marking the year the first Stang went into production.
It was fifty years ago this week when Ford unveiled the first-ever Mustang. New York was the venue for that historic debut, and the Big Apple is where the Blue Oval will unveil the 50th Anniversary Edition 2015 Mustang. Set to debut at the New York Auto Show this week, Ford says it will build just 1964 units of the limited-run special, signifying the year the pony car first came into being.
Based on the Mustang GT, the 50th Anniversary Edition will come in Kona Blue or Wimbledon White – the same shade the very first Mustang wore when it sold in April 1964. As you would expect, the limited edition Stang comes fully loaded with exclusive touches including louvered rear-quarter windows specially built from layered sheets of glass, subtle chrome touches, and unique 19-inch ‘Y-spoke’ alloys inspired by the original Stang’s steel wheels. A faux gas cap badge wearing “GT 50 Years” can also be found at the rear. An exclusive two-tone cashmere and black interior boasts cashmere stitching, aluminum trim, 50 Year badges, and a serialized '50 Year Limited Edition' number on the passenger side.
Power output figures have yet to be revealed, but the 50th Anniversary Edition Mustang will be offered with the six-speed manual or automatic. Buyers opting for the auto will have the only automatic-equipped Stangs with the performance pack that includes Brembo brakes, a limited-slip diff with 3.55 final-drive ratio, and Pirelli P-Zero rubber. The 2015 Ford Mustang 50 Year Limited Edition will go on sale this fall, with pricing yet to be released.
