2015 Ford Mustang makes it on top of the Empire State Building

It has been 50 years since the Ford Mustang was first introduced to the world and placed high on top of the Empire State Building.  To celebrate 50 years Ford has again placed the brand new 2015 Ford Mustang on top of the Empire State Building.  In order to do this they had to essentially cut the Mustang into five different pieces so that it could fit in the elevator to take them to the top of the building.

1965 Ford Mustang

The Ford Mustang made its debut in the 1964 World’s Fair in New York City.  The following year in 1965 engineers took apart one of the Mustangs and took it to the top of the Empire State Building where it was then reassembled!  When the Mustang was first debuted it sold for around $2,300!  The Mustang’s sales blew away expectations, Ford expected to sell 100,000 the first year and they sold 100,000 in the first three months.  The observation deck where the Mustang was placed is open to the public from 8 a.m until 2 a.m.  This gave the team of six only six hours to get the car on the observation deck and reassembled.  Before all the parts were shipped to New York City, the six man crew practiced a number of times reassembling the car to time everything out and make sure they had enough time to complete it.
