LEGO Speed Champions 1968 Ford Mustang will cost $14.99. Some assembly required because that's kind of the point.
Ford has teamed up with building-block manufacturer LEGO to create a 1968 Ford Mustang with a price that pretty much any enthusiast can manage. Not only that, its maintenance costs are nil and there's no insurance necessary. To celebrate Ford's heritage, LEGO will add the '68 Mustang to its Speed Champions collection, which is also comprised of other legendary classic and modern Fords. This latest addition to the collection will hit store shelves priced at an easily palatable $14.99.
The 183-piece LEGO set includes all the parts for the car, a minifig painted in vintage racing suit garb, and a timing sign with a curiously displayed 9.453 1/4-mile time. "The new Ford Mustang LEGO Speed Champions set gives parents and children the chance to share their passions – generations of fans have grown up building LEGO sets and spending time together behind the wheel," said Myra Lind, LEGO Speed Champions marketing manager. "This partnership of iconic brands allows kids of all ages to enjoy the latest products from two great companies."
"We worked closely with LEGO to design a vintage Mustang, personalizing the fastback with stripes and decals that harken back to Ford's racing heritage," said Matt Monroe, Ford licensing manager. "This 1968 Mustang fastback race car is a special product that adds even more excitement to Ford's LEGO Speed Champions lineup." Should you crave another Ford, the collection also includes other Blue Oval models, such as the historic GT40 and modern GT race cars, F-150 Raptor, Fiesta WRC rally car, classic Ford hot rod and a 2015 Ford Mustang. The 1968 Mustang will arrive at stores on March 1. No driver's license necessary.
