Ford Mustang 60th Anniversary Package

Ford Mustang 60th Anniversary Package

Sixty years and seven generations after the Ford Mustang debuted at the 1964 New York World’s Fair, Ford is celebrating the heritage of one of the most iconic vehicles in automotive history with a limited-edition Mustang 60th Anniversary package.

“We took inspiration from the original Mustang and applied some of the most special design elements to the latest in this limited production run,” said Matt Simpson, Ford Enthusiast Vehicles general manager. “Mustang’s design DNA has never been stronger or more enduring than this multi-generational tribute.”

The Ford Mustang 60th Anniversary package is only available for the GT Premium with 5.0-liter V8 and will be available on both coupe and convertible models with either manual or automatic transmissions.

Building upon the iconic design cues that have defined the Mustang, it features a unique dash plaque and exclusive exterior features that create a special look and feel that brings classic accents of the original car that debuted in 1964 into the modern era.

“The design was directly inspired by the clean silhouette of the original car,” said Stefan Taylor, senior designer. “During the design process, we looked closely at the finely detailed elements of the 1965 Mustang, like the fender badges and wheel center caps. Our focus was capturing the feel of the ‘65, while also staying true to the Mustang as the modern sports car that it is.”

Key features of the Ford Mustang 60th Anniversary Package include:

  • Exclusive 60th Anniversary badges on the fenders and trunk lid are a modern take on the 1965 Mustang cloisonné badges
  • Unique 20-inch wheels finished in Dark Gravity Gray with bright machined details featuring a Vermillion Red, retro-themed stamped aluminum center cap inspired by the 1965 Mustang center caps
  • Exclusive side graphics which can be optioned in either Iconic Silver or Vermillion Red and are reminiscent of Mustang’s original rocker panel stripes
  • New grille with a unique mesh design as a callback to the 1964 original made modern with silver-accented nostrils that are also functional air intakes for the 5.0-liter V8
  • Smoked housing of standard Mustang Nite Pony headlights allows silver-accented nostrils to stand out
  • Available in classic Wimbledon White, modern Race Red and Vapor Blue colors
  • Iconic Silver mirror caps on Race Red, Vapor Blue cars callback to chrome mirrors of old, while Wimbledon White cars adopt body-color mirror caps
  • Serialized 60th Anniversary instrument panel badge
  • Interior colors available in Space Gray, Carmine Red or Black Onyx

The Ford Mustang 60th Anniversary Package is a limited-production model, with only 1,965 being made available as a nod to the official first model year of the car. The Ford Mustang 60th Anniversary Package will be available to order this summer and is set to hit dealerships nationwide in the fourth quarter of this year. Pricing will be available nearer to the on-sale date.
