Ford Celebrates The Roll Out Of Its 10 Millionth Mustang

Posted by at 1:55 pm on August 8, 2018

Ford announced this week that it has made 10 million Mustangs, across 54 years and six generations of one of America’s most iconic muscle cars. Ten million is a big number no matter the circumstance, as most of us are probably be overwhelmed at the thought that there are actually 10 million Mustangs on the planet. But it’s big in terms of car production, too.

According to the Detroit Free Press, Chevrolet’s made more than 1.6 million Corvettes and more than 5.5 million Camaros over the years—just fractions of the Mustang’s 10 million. The Corvette came around about a decade before the Mustang, and the Camaro a few years after it. Outside of American sports cars, the Freep reports that Toyota’s made a casual 44 million Corollas in 52 years. Cars will probably be bland, self-everything, artificial-intelligence-powered pods before the Mustang can hit that number.

The 10 millionth Mustang made, Ford said, is a white 2019 convertible with a 460-horsepower V8 and a six-speed manual transmission. It cosmetically matches the first serialized Mustang, VIN No. 001, from 1964, which had a three-speed manual transmission and a 164-HP V8.

To celebrate it all, Ford rounded up 60 Mustang owners to park their cars in the shape of the number 10 million. It appears to have gone smoothly, just like Mustang sales have for the past five decades.
