To celebrate the 50 years of Mustang, Ford Motor Co. kicked off its celebration with a special ceremony commemorating the 1 millionth Mustang produced at the Flat Rock Assembly Plant, but there were another 7.5 million Mustangs produced in total.

“Mustang is one of the most beloved nameplates in the industry, with fans around the world and throughout Ford Motor Company,” said Raj Nair, Ford’s group vice president for global product development.  “The team here at Flat Rock Assembly has built an outstanding reputation for quality while producing one million Mustangs over the last nine years, and we expect that to continue for many years to come.”

The 2014 Mustang, which is available now, will be the last of its current generation.  Ford is planning to introduce its next-generation Mustang for the 2015 model year.

The new generation 2015 Mustang will also be sold in Europe, with the popularity of the pony cars very evident.  Remember the car used in the iconic 1966 movie “A man and a woman”?  It was a white Mustang.

Ford has already unveiled a special 50th anniversary Mustang logo, which is featured on memorabilia and apparel, and the event is expected to be celebrated heavily leading up to April 17, 2014.
