The iconic Ford Mustang has achieved a legendary run of success, with it heralding in the muscle car era in the 1960s and 70s and it currently holding the title as the best-selling sports car in the world. The Ford Mustang celebrated an important milestone on August 8, 2018, with the production of its 10 millionth car.
The 10 millionth Mustang rolled off the assembly line at the Flat Rock Assembly Plant in Michigan. It is a state-of-the-art 460-hp 2019 Wimbledon White GT V8 six-speed convertible, which pays homage to VIN 001 — the first serialized 1964.5 Ford Mustang. 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 that have been produced over the past five decades.
“Mustang is the heart and soul of this company and a favorite around the world. 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.” – Jim Farley, President of Global Markets, Ford Motor Company
