Ford Mustang Concepts That Shaped The 10 Millionth Mustang

It might be hard to believe, but the truth is that the 10 millionth Ford Mustang has just left the automaker's assembly line in MI.

Ford has put together a proper celebration to commemorate 8 digits' worth of pony cars rolling out of factories across the country over the last half-century. The commas were represented by the first Mustang produced and the 10 millionth, a 2019 Wimbledon White GT V8 six-speed manual convertible.

During its 54-year production history, the Mustang was built in San Jose, California, and Metuchen, New Jersey, as well as at the original Mustang production facility in Dearborn. That auto, with a serial number ending in 001, was purchased in Canada in April 1964 by an airline pilot named Stanley Tucker, who gave it back to Ford in exchange for the 1 millionth Mustang in March 1966. Production at the Ford plant in the automaker's hometown ended in 2004 after 40 years. There, the cars were organized into a configuration that spelled out "10,000,000".

Sales slowed with the recession back then, but kicked into high gear when Ford expanded Mustang sales globally with the introduction of sixth generation auto in 2015 and went on to sell almost half a million by the middle of 2018. Now you may wonder why a simple white Mustang without any giant racing stripes would be so special - apart from the 10 millionth auto. Ford will be putting it on promotional duty for a while, but its future is uncertain after that.

The parade will end with the Mustangs spelling out the milestone in one of Flat Rock's giant parking lots.
