Right from the beginning, Hot Wheels and Ford Mustang have gone together like speed and power. Like chrome and rubber. Like… well, cool and cars. To celebrate 50 years of Mustang, we asked you to show us your ponies!
One of the most recognizable and in-demand automobiles of all time, the Ford Mustang was introduced to the public 50 years ago at the New York World’s Fair on April 17, 1964. The flagship car of its class, it launched the term “pony car” which later came to be applied to any car in that class.
When the inaugural Hot Wheels series launched in 1968, the Custom Mustang was prominent. Mustangs have remained a mainstay of the Hot Wheels mainline ever since. And collectors love Mustangs! So here are a few shots that caught our eye. Enjoy!
