It’s almost time for one of the biggest celebrations in car history, the 50th birthday of the Ford Mustang! The release of the very first Mustang, a Wimbledon White convertible that is now on display at the Henry Ford Museum, happened on April 17th of 1964.
This month, fans everywhere celebrated the anniversary of the beginning of production for the Mustang, although it is still widely debated whether or not production began on March 9th or March 10th of 1964.
Plans have already begun for the birthday party, with the Mustang Club of America reserving the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Pony Drive in Norman, Oklahoma, and the Charlotte Motor Speedway for fans to come together to honor this historic vehicle.
