Ford Just Built its 10 Millionth Mustang - Motor Trend

Since March of 1964, Ford's been building Mustangs. Today, 54 years after production began, the 10 millionth one rolled off the assembly line. As a tribute to the first production Mustang, Ford made sure the milestone car was a white convertible with a V-8 and a manual transmission.

To celebrate, Ford held events at its Dearborn headquarters and Flat Rock Assembly Plant that included flyovers from three P-51 Mustang fighter planes and a parade of Mustangs from every generation that drove from Dearborn to Flat Rock.

And in case that 10-million-Mustang sales figure isn't impressive enough, Ford claims the Mustang has been the world's best-selling sports car for the last three years. Over the last 50 years, Ford says it's also been the best-selling sports car in the U.S.

Having just driven the 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt, it's clear the original pony car has come a long way in the last 54 years. Even the regular GT now makes 460 hp, up significantly from the first Mustang's 164. An independent suspension has also transformed the Mustang into a legitimate sports car.

"Mustang is the heart and soul of this company and a favorite around the world," said Jim Farley, Ford's head of global markets, in a release. "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."
