Ford to build 2014 ½ Mustang for 50th anniversary?
With the next generation Mustang slated for 2015, many people, us included, have been wondering what will Ford will do regarding a 50th anniversary model. Will Ford give the new 2015 Mustang the responsibility of celebrating a half century of uninterrupted production, or will they make the anniversary model for 2014? With the very first Mustangs being produced as 1964 ½ models, the anniversary year is somewhat up for debate. History dictates that the anniversary model be a 2014, given that Ford has recently produced special edition Mustangs in 1999, 2004 and 2009.
Now it appears the answer is neither. According to a Ford social media representative posting on The Mustang Source, Ford will produce a special 2014 ½ Mustang as a limited edition 50th Anniversary model.
“The 2014 ½ will be the 50th Anniversary edition,” the representative stated on the site’s forum. “It will be added to production for a limited run sometime during the year.”
What exactly will be included in the 50th anniversary model is still unclear, although we hope it’s more than a simple sticker and badge job. It’s possible Ford will release more details at one of the upcoming auto shows over the next several months, and we’ll be sure to bring you more details about the 2014 ½ Ford Mustang as we get them.
