Ford Mustang 50th Anniversary Logo

Back in November a Ford social media representative on TheMustangSource.com forums posted that Ford would produce a limited number of 2014 ½ Mustangs to celebrate the car’s 50th anniversary. “The 2014 ½ will be the 50th Anniversary edition,” the representative stated. “It will be added to production for a limited run sometime during the year.” She later retracted the statement, saying,” Okay, we made a mistake. We misunderstood the information and we’re sorry for causing all this confusion.”

However, according to our inside sources at Ford, we can now confirm that a 2014½ Mustang is still in the works. Ford will build just 1,000 examples of the limited edition 2014 ½ model, which will be the first Mustang to be based on the next generation S550 platform. As the cars are sure to be instant collectors’ items (we fully expect the dreaded “market adjustment” prices from dealers), each one will come with a special VIN and build number. Those hoping for a high performance anniversary model will be disappointed, as the 2014 ½ Mustang won’t receive any additional upgrades compared to the standard 2015 model. Rumors suggest the 5.0L V8 will produce around 450 horsepower. Other differences compared to the 2015 model are unknown at this point.

There wasn’t anything too special about this Mustang. Ford actually designated all standard Mustangs (no Bullitt, GT500, etc) models as anniversary models as production was cut short in preparation for the redesigned 2010 model year. The 2009 Mustang can be distinguished by a 45th anniversary badge on the front fenders.

2004 Ford Mustang GT 40th Anniversary2004 40th Anniversary Ford Mustang 

Built in both GT and V6 versions, the 40th anniversary Mustang came in Black, Oxford White or Crimson Red and featured Arizona Beige stripes, premium wheels, body-color fold-in mirrors, an interior upgrade package and 40th anniversary floor mats. It was an $895 upgrade option, with 5,700 being produced.

1999 Ford Mustang 35th Anniversary1999 35th Anniversary Ford Mustang 

The Ford Mustang arrived in 1999 with a new design, and less than 5,000 were limited edition anniversary models. Available only for the GT model, the special Mustangs came in White, Silver, Black and Performance Red and featured a hood scoop, a black hood stripe, side scoops, a raised rear spoiler and a honeycomb insert in the rear decklid.
