This is the ten millionth Ford Mustang
V8 manual convertible marks an astonishing milestone in ‘Stang history
The times, they are a-changin’. The very first Ford Mustang ever built – VIN 001 – back in 1964 was a convertible, 164bhp, three-speed V8 model. Now, more than 50 years later, Ford has just built its ten millionth Mustang.

“Mustang is the heart and soul of this company,” explains Ford boss Jim Farley. Indeed, it is one of the world’s most famous cars outright, let alone synonymous with the Blue Oval.
To celebrate the milestone, Ford invited 60 Mustang owners and their cars – spanning all six generations – assembled into the formation you see above, along with a flyby of three WWII-era P-51 Mustang fighter planes.
