Ford Motor Company announced today it has built its 9 millionth
Mustang. The GT Convertible Mustang is heading west to be delivered to
a dealership in Iowa.
The Ford Mustang, approaching its 45th
anniversary on April 17th, 2009, is one of the most widely recognized
vehicles in the world. Today, one of every two sports cars sold in
America is a Ford Mustang. The Mustang is also Ford Motor Company’s
longest-running nameplate. Mustang was introduced on April 17, 1964, at
the New York World’s Fair.
Mustang sales hit an astounding
419,000 in its first 12 months on the market, and topped the 1-million
mark in the first two years, shattering the sales records of any single
model in the history of the automobile. Mustang leads the nearly
$1-billion aftermarket parts and accessories industry as the most
personalized vehicle of all time, and has been recognized by SEMA as
the most accessory-friendly new vehicle.
The 2009 Mustang offers a Glass Roof option and a new Warriors in Pink Package, available this summer.
