Because it can, and because it has before.
As part of the 50th anniversary celebrations for the FordMustang convertible, set to take place during next month's New York Auto Show, Ford is planningto place a 2015 Mustang convertible on top of the city’s Empire State Building.Reaching for the 86th-floor observation deck, Ford will recreate what it did tointroduce the convertible prototype 50 years ago. It may seem silly, buttradition is tradition, especially for an epic car like the Ford Mustang.
With no crane tall enough to make the sky-high delivery andno helicopter pilot stupid enough to make the attempt, the current model – like itspredecessor – will have to be chopped up into three pieces and sent up in theelevators. The sliced Mustang will be on display at the Empire State Buildingon April 16-17.
