Would have been interesting if Ford had put the mid engine prototype into production along with the Falcon based Mustang.

Out of all of those Mustangs made, you'd think they could spare one gift Mustang to me!

Would have been a good competitor to the Corvette and maybe Chevrolet would have done a mid engined Corvette in the 60s or 70s

They had a big show with one of each mustang for every year. There were helicopters flying overhead. they made a pageant of it, good for them. It is a remarkable accomplishment. I wonder how many Mustangs are still on the road?

I watched some of the footage of their celebration. Pretty cool. I like how they had the "first" Mustang (a wimbleton white convertible with v8, parked next to the 10,000,000 mustang which was also painted wimbleton white.

I also like how they had a parade of Mustangs in white every year had one represented. Some pretty cool cars in that parade.


The irony is that it hasn't been confirmed that the "first" mustang is actually the first. Sure it's serial number 100001, but there have been a few disputed claims that it wasn't the first one down the assembly line.

I wonder where mine falls into production sequence? 7,500,000? who knows.
