Ford celebrates production of 10 million Mustang sports cars


Ford Motor Co. marked the production of the 10 millionth Mustang with celebrations at the automaker’s headquarters and at the Flat Rock Assembly Plant where the iconic sports car is made.

Complete story. The complete details.

A parade of Mustangs from 1964 to the present day rolled into the HQ’s parking lot in Dearborn, Michigan, Wednesday morning before making the 30-minute drive ‘ complete with police escort ‘ to the Flat Rock complex. There, the cars were organized into a configuration that spelled out, “10,000,000.” The commas were represented by the first Mustang produced and the 10 millionth, a 2019 Wimbledon White GT V8 six-speed manual convertible.

Mustang is the best-selling sports car of the last 50 years in the U.S. and the world’s top-selling sports car for three years in a row.

“Mustang is the heart and soul of this company and a favorite 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 is celebrating the milestone with employee celebrations at its Dearborn headquarters and its Flat Rock Assembly Plant, including flyovers from three WWII-era P-51 Mustang fighter planes and Mustangs produced for more than five decades parading from Dearborn to Flat Rock, where the Mustang currently is manufactured.

Lots Of Ponies: 10 Millionth Ford Mustang Rolls Off The Assembly line

Ford celebrates a milestone today with its Mustang pony car. On Wednesday, the 10 millionth Ford Mustang left the assembly line after 54 years of continuous production.

To honor the 10 millionth car, Ford Mustang owners of all model years gathered at the Flat Rock assembly plant in Michigan to spell out the achievement with their cars. A flyover by P-51 Mustang fighter planes also marked the occasion. Additional celebrations are planned at Ford’s Dearborn headquarters for employees.

The 10 millionth car itself is a 2019 Ford Mustang GT six-speed manual convertible finished in Wimbledon White. The exterior color echoes the 1964.5 Ford Mustang sporting VIN 001, which was also equipped with a V8 engine and a three-speed manual transmission. The car produced 164 hp’a far cry from the 5.0-liter Coyote V8’s 460 hp today.
