Ford Motor Company Celebrates Its 10 Millionth Mustang


Ford Motor Company made history in August, with the company celebrating the production of its 10 millionth Ford Mustang, the iconic sports car that has become synonymous with the Ford name.


The 10 millionth Ford Mustang is a 2019 Wimbledon White GT convertible model capable of producing 460 horsepower thanks to a V8 engine.


It is modeled after the first serialized Mustang produced in 1964 in the same color and model. The 2019 Wimbledon White GT also features a three-speed manual transmission, just like the first-ever serialized Mustang.


Ford celebrated the milestone with employees at its Dearborn, Michigan headquarters and the company’s Flat Rock Assembly Plant by showcasing five decades-worth of Mustangs, as well as with flyovers from three World War II-area P-51 Mustang fighter planes.


The Ford Mustang has been America’s best-selling sports car for the last 50 years, and has been the world’s best-selling sports car for the last three years.


Jim Farley, Ford’s president of global markets, said the Mustang is the heart and soul of Ford Motor Company and described in a statement the excitement that the Mustang produces worldwide.


“Mustang is the heart and soul of this company and a favorite around the world,” Farley said. “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.”
