The 10 MILLIONTH Ford Mustang

Posted on 10 August 2018 by Tony Santos

Ford celebrated its production of the 10 millionth Mustang at its headquarters and at the Flat Rock Assembly Plant where the iconic sports car were assembled. From Dearborn headquarters, a parade of Mustangs from 1964 to present took off for a 30-min police-escorted drive to Flat Rock complex. At the parking lot, these 62 iconic cars were parked to spell out ‘10,000,000’, notably part of the symbolic numbers were the first Mustang ever produced and the 2019 Wimbledon White GT V8 six-speed manual convertible who placed itself in history as the 10 millionth Mustang.

In the US, Mustang is the bestselling sports car of the last 50 years and the world’s top-selling for the past three years. According to Ford CEO Jim Hackett, ‘Today, when we say the word, ‘Mustang,’ isn’t it amazing that you don’t think of the horse? You think of the vehicle, it’s changed the perception because of its popularity.’

During its 54-year production history, the Mustang was built in San Jose, California, and Metuchen, New Jersey, as well as at the original Mustang production facility in Dearborn. These days, Flat Rock is the home of the Mustang.
