Ford Celebrates Production of 10 Millionth Mustang

Ford is currently celebrating the production of its 10 millionth Mustang which has been the world’s top-selling sports car for three years straight. The 10 millionth Mustang is a 2019 Wimbledon White GT V8 convertible model that produces 460 horsepower and features a six-speed manual transmission and was built at Ford’s Flat Rock Assembly Plant in Michigan. The first serialized Mustang (VIN 001) was produced back in 1964 and was the same colour and model with a three-speed manual transmission and a 164 horsepower V8 under the hood. Mustang is the heart and soul of this company and a favourite around the world,” said Jim Farley, president of global markets, Ford Motor Company. “I get the same thrill seeing a Mustang roll down a street in Detroit, London or Beijing that I felt when I bought my first car – a 1966 Mustang coupe that I drove across the country as a teenager. Mustang is a smile-maker in any language.” Ford’s celebrations for this hugely significant milestone included flyovers from three IIW-era P-51 Mustang fighter planes and a parade of Mustangs produced over the years going from Ford’s Dearborn Headquarters to the Flat Rock Assembly Plant where they continue to be manufactured today. Over the course of its 54-year production history, the Mustang has also been built in San Jose, California, Metuchen, New Jersey and the original Mustang production facility in Dearborn, Michigan. The Mustang is currently in its sixth generation and is bringing back the iconic Mustang Bullitt model for the 2019 model year with an exclusive 480 horsepower and 5.0L V8 engine under the hood. With the press release to mark the milestone, Ford included a list of important Mustang launches by model year which we will paste in below.
