Ford celebrated last month’s 50th anniversary of the original Mustang’s debut at the 1964 New York World’s Fair by unveiling a special edition version of the latest 2015 model. Called the Mustang 50 Year Limited Edition, it will be built in a run of just 1,964 examples, all based on the V-8-powered Mustang GT fastback coupe.
