Ford Mustang on the Empire State BuildingLast Updated July 21, 2021 | Andrew Boyle
In 1965, the Ford Mustang climbed to the top of the Empire State Building. A white convertible Mustang was disassembled into four main sections and transported, along with smaller components, to the top of the Empire State Building via its elevators.
Back in late 2012 when the 2013 Shelby GT500 was released, it was a sight and sound to be held. Being the most powerful production V8 in existence was no small feat from the joint forces of Ford Racing, SVT and Carroll Shelby himself. 662 horses of insane power just pleading to be put to the asphalt. Since then, we’ve seen the Camaro’s ZL1 and Mopar’s Hellcat seriously give the 2013-2014 GT500 a run for its money. Now, Ford Performance is answering back with the 2020 GT500 and 760 horses of American fury!
Starting with the 1964 ½ Mustang that officially launched for 1965, Ford’s pony car has become an American icon. Learn how many models were produced for each year.
Available only in Grabber Orange and featuring a black hood stripe and tornado decal, the Mustang Twister Special is highly sought after by collectors. Based on the already powerful 1970 Mach 1, the Twister Special added a drag pack suspension and either a Super Cobra Jet Ram Air engine or the new 351 CID Cleveland V8. The Twister saw revivals in 1985 and 2008.
