Ford has unveiled the 2015 Mustang GT 50 Year Limited Edition. A tribute to five decades of Mustang production, the car will be available in either Wimbledon White or Kona Blue, and Ford will only build 1,964 examples. Get it? 1964? The year Ford sold the first Mustang? That car happened to be Wimbledon White.
You'll also find a few pieces of brightwork outside. Ford says chrome played a larger role in the Mustang's design in the past, so the Limited Edition models come graced with highlights around the tail lamps, side glass, and headlamps. Up front, there's also a corraled pony in the grille. The quarter windows are louvered, a nod to the original fastbacks. If it helps, think of this car as a Greatest Hits album of Mustang design.
Inside, buyers get an individually-numbered plaque, special stitching throughout the cabin, and two-tone cashmere and black leather.
You can opt for either a six-speed automatic with a 3.55 limited-slip rear differential or a six-speed manual with a 3.73 Torsen rear. You can guess which one we'd go for, though it's worth noting that the Limited Edition is the only Mustang available with both an automatic and the performance pack.
The 2015 Ford Mustang 50 Year Limited Edition comes out fall. There's no word on price, but we're guessing it will be dealer's choice.
