Ford Mustang 50th Anniversary
Ford Motor Company

This month, the Ford Mustang turns 50, and Ford is celebrating in a big way. In 1964, the original Mustang was unveiled atop the Empire State Building. Last week, as part of the New York International Auto Show, a 2015 Ford Mustang was assembled on the Empire State Building's 86th floor. As any Ford Mustang enthusiast can attest, the Mustang has done its fair share of maturing over the years.

In our 50th Anniversary Ford Mustang slideshow, we take a look back at the evolution of this iconic all-American car that's firmly ingrained in our films, music and popular culture.
