Ford Mustang 50 Year Limited Edition

Ford Pays Homage to Five Decades of the World's Favorite Pony Car with Mustang 50 Year Limited Edition

  • The 50 Year Limited Edition builds on the all-new 2015 Ford Mustang GT fastback and will be available in either Wimbledon White or Kona Blue
  • Special-edition Mustang comes standard with nearly every available option; the only choice customers have to make is color, and manual or automatic transmission
  • 2015 Mustang 50 Year Limited Edition will be available in fall 2014; only 1,964 examples will ever be built

VISIT THE 50 YEARS OF MUSTANG COLLECTION

Fifty years after debuting one of the world’s most popular cars, Ford is marking the milestone by revealing a Mustang 50 Year Limited Edition. Created to honor five decades of Mustang heritage, only 1,964 examples of the 50 Year Limited Edition will ever be built when it goes on sale this fall.

Mustang 50 Year Limited Edition

“When Mustang was approved for development more than 50 years ago, I don’t think anyone imagined it would spawn such a dedicated base of fans around the world and still be in production today,” said Bill Ford, executive chairman, Ford Motor Company. “We are thrilled to be here in New York – where Mustang was first shown to the public at the 1964 World’s Fair – to re-create that historic event for today’s Mustang enthusiasts.”

Based on the all-new 2015 Mustang GT fastback with performance pack, the 50 Year Limited Edition is designed to provide customers with outstanding performance and a unique appearance that will be instantly recognizable on the road. The only options for the 50 Year Limited Edition are the choice of two exclusive colors and a six-speed manual or automatic transmission.

Mustang 50 Year Limited Edition

50 years of inspiration
“The new Mustang blends a muscular, contemporary shape with design cues that define it as quintessentially Mustang,” said Moray Callum, Ford vice president of design. “The 50 Year Limited Edition adds details that set it apart from other Mustangs, while hearkening back to the 1965 original.”

The only two available colors are Wimbledon White, like Mustang serial No. 0001 that was first sold to Capt. Stanley Tucker in April 1964, or Kona Blue. Both are exclusive to this limited-edition car.

“Chrome trim was much more prevalent on cars in the 1960s than it is today, so we added some discreet highlights for the grille, side glass and tri-bar taillamps,” said Callum. “The darker Kona Blue provides a particularly striking contrast against the chrome.”

Chrome bezels surrounding the base of each of the three taillamp blades take inspiration from the original 1962 design proposal by Gale Halderman that became the basis for the production model that debuted in 1964. The three individual lamps on each side of that design were combined into a single tri-bar lamp cluster for production, but the original concept has returned five decades on. The Mustang 50 Year Limited Edition will be the only 2015 model with the large faux gas cap badge on the rear fascia, with 50 Years added to the GT designation.

Another visual element that won’t be found on any other Mustang is the louvered rear quarter-windows. Unlike the external louvers on the quarter-windows of the 1965 fastback, the new windows are comprised of layered sheets of glass built with a construction technique uniquely developed for this car.

Mustang 50 Year Limited Edition

Unique cockpit experience
From behind the wheel, drivers will know they are driving a very special car. The aluminum trim panel that spans the double-brow instrument panel gets an axel spin finish different from other 2015 Mustangs, plus a special serialized 50 Year Limited Edition badge on the passenger side. Each badge will be individually etched at Flat Rock Assembly Plant where Mustang is built.

The limited-edition is the only 2015 Mustang with a cashmere-stitched, leather-wrapped steering wheel. The stitching is also used on the instrument panel, shifter boot, center armrest, door inserts and seats. The seats feature exclusive two-tone cashmere and black leather upholstery, and the Mustang 50 Year logo on the seat backs.

Limited-edition cars will be equipped with loop-carpet floor mats with cashmere stitching and suede binding not available on other Mustangs.

Mustang 50 Year Limited Edition

A showpiece meant to be driven
“Mustang fans love to drive their cars, even the rarer examples of the breed, so we built this limited-edition from the best-performing 2015 Mustang available – the GT fastback with the performance pack,” said Dave Pericak, Mustang chief engineer. “While some collectors will undoubtedly stash this car away in a museum, those who choose to hit the open road will get a world-class sports car that can run with the best.”

Powered by the upgraded 5.0-liter V8 engine delivering more than 420 horsepower and 390 lb.-ft. of torque, every 50 Year Limited Edition will be equipped with the Mustang GT performance pack that includes massive six-piston Brembo front brakes and 19-inch alloy wheels with high-performance Y-speed-rated Pirelli P-Zero summer tires.

Mustang 50 Year Limited Edition

The 19-inch alloy wheels feature a unique Y-spoke design inspired by the chromed steel wheels that were offered on the original Mustang 50 years ago. The front wheels are 9.0 inches wide with 255/40R tires, while the staggered rear wheels are 9.5 inches wide with 275/40R tires.

The 50 Year Limited Edition is the only 2015 Mustang that will be available with a combination of an automatic transmission and the performance pack. When equipped with the six-speed automatic transmission, the Mustang 50 Year Limited Edition will get a limited-slip rear differential with a 3.55:1 final-drive. Customers who opt for the six-speed manual will get a Torsen differential with a 3.73:1 final-drive ratio.

Mustang 50 Year Limited Edition

The 50 Year Limited Edition car will be among the first 2015 Mustangs built when production begins later this year. Each of the 1,964 50 Year Limited Edition Mustangs will get a unique owner’s guide in a leather portfolio with the 50 Year badge on the outside.

“We wanted to provide our most dedicated fans with the emotion of the original Mustang in a 21st century car,” said Ford. “With this 50 Year Limited Edition, I believe we have accomplished our goal.”

IHRA names Clevite Official Bearing of IHRA, announces exciting new Clevite Bonus Program 

 

NORWALK, Ohio (April 10, 2014) - IRG Sports + Entertainment™ and the International Hot Rod Association™ (IHRA) are excited to announce a three-year, multifaceted partnership with MAHLE Aftermarket Inc. naming Clevite the Official Bearing of the IHRA.

 

Clevite, part of the MAHLE Aftermarket family, brings more than 95 years of customer service and experience to the IHRA as the world leader in engine bearings for racing applications. Now Clevite brings that experience and expertise back to the IHRA Motorsports family as the Official Bearing of the IHRA and sponsor of a brand new program rewarding sportsman winners at select IHRA Nitro Jam Drag Racing Series events.

 

"We are so excited to be back involved with the IHRA through this great partnership. We loved working with IHRA several years ago and we were so excited when we heard that the IHRA was going back to what drag racing is really all about - racing," said Bill McKnight, Training Manager at MAHLE Aftermarket Inc. "When we heard about the exciting new plans for the IHRA over the next few years, we jumped at the chance to get involved."

 

In addition to being named the Official Bearing of the IHRA, Clevite will also present a special award at IHRA Nitro Jam Drag Racing Series events run in conjunction with the Summit Racing Equipment Pro-Am Tour presented by AMSOIL. The new Clevite Bonus Program will award the winner of each of the seven major IHRA sportsman classes at those double weekends a $200 bonus and a special presentation in the winner's circle.

 

The Clevite Bonus Program will be awarded at Nitro Jam Drag Racing Series events held at Bradenton Motorsports Park (April 11-12), Rockingham Dragway (May 17-18), Maryland International Raceway (June 13-14), Grand Bend Motorplex (June 20-22), Castrol Raceway (July 4-6) and Cordova Dragway Park (July 18-19).

 

"We wanted to broaden our scope this time around by getting involved with the great sportsman racers at the IHRA," McKnight said. "Our first involvement with the IHRA was strictly with the nitro cars, so this time we decided to get more involved with the grassroots of the sport and recognize the winners of IHRA's seven premier sportsman classes with a cash award and a special presentation.

 

"We are very excited about this partnership which is why we signed a three-year deal. We are committed to making this program even more successful and growing our involvement with IHRA."

 

Clevite has been in the bearing business since 1919 when it first started up operations in Cleveland, Ohio. Over the past 95 years, Clevite has grown into a world leader in providing quality engine bearings and is the number one engine bearing in racing engines. Owned by German automotive parts supplier MAHLE Aftermarket Inc., Clevite continues to grow with research and operations centers in the United States as well as Rugby, England that will continue to expand the Clevite product offering.

 

"MAHLE Aftermarket is a quality company with great people and great product. We are very excited to team up with such an outstanding company in bringing Clevite to the IHRA family as the official bearing provider and sponsor of a great program rewarding our sportsman racers," said John Donaldson, IHRA Senior Director of Corporate Partnerships. "This is a relationship that will only continue to grow over the next few years as Clevite continues to team up with the IHRA on a national level."
