It only took Ford 54 years to create this piece of automotive history. During that timeframe, the Mustang has been America’s best-selling sports car. When this white GT convertible rolled off the Flat Rock, Michigan assembly line, it was greeted by five generations of Mustangs and honored with a flyover by three World War II-era P51 Mustang fighter planes.
“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.”
More than 60 Ford Mustang owners got together to pay tribute to the 10 millionth Mustang by spelling out the landmark event with their cars. Kudos to Ford for commemorating this event in grand fashion.
