Last December 2013, Ford showed the sixth-generation Mustang to the world.
For anyone who cares about cars, it was a big deal because the car has been an icon ever since it began tearing through roads in its '60s heyday. And for anyone who likes their cars fast and sexy, the new Mustang fortunately still has the soul of a performer, thanks to its turbocharged EcoBoost® 2.3-liter or the upgraded 5.0-liter V8 with more than 420 horsepower.
Fifty years may have passed since the car was revealed to the public back in April 16, 1964, but the adoration of gearheads live on, proving that it is indeed an icon.
To celebrate that milestone, Ford recently pulled a stunt that paid tribute to an old stunt that they pulled to celebrate the first car.
Wait, what? Okay, let's do this again.
In 1965, Ford took the original Mustang to the observation deck of the Empire State Building—then the tallest building in the world. The narrow observation deck was on the 86th floor, a place that no crane or helicopter could reach due to the building's spire towering. So what they did was slice up the car into portions that could fit into the building's elevator. Like so:
Fast forward to last April 17, 2014, the day Ford recreated that feat the way only they can! Jump to the next page to see the more recent stunt!
