2015 Mustang On Top Of The Empire State Building
Now this is really cool, Ford have just announced that on April 16-17 2014, Two of the world’s most recognizable icons are coming together again replicating the same feat that happened 50 years ago. This also coincides with the global celebration of 50 years since Mustang debuted at the 1964 World’s Fair in New York. Ford is celebrating 50 years of continuous pony car production by bringing the all-new Mustang convertible to the Empire State Building’s 86th floor observatory, allowing visitors to join in the festivities.
Ford is re-creating the same feat it achieved nearly 50 years ago – unveiling a Mustang on the world’s most famous attraction, once again making history. Taking a car 86 stories above the densely populated streets of Midtown Manhattan is no simple task. No portable crane can reach the 86th floor observatory, and the spire towering above the relatively narrow deck makes helicopter delivery impossible. That leaves the elevators as the only viable option. Right now a technical team is hard at work disassembling a Mustang into sections so that it will fit into the elevators of the 1,454-foot-tall international landmark, they have a little over 3 weeks from today to accomplish this monumental task, once everything is uncrated and transported up 86 floors, the technicians will have less than six hours to reassemble the sections into a complete car that will be on display above Manhattan. We have to ask - "Will they be offering test drives" and who would ever have thought you would see a 2015 Mustang on top of the empire state building anyway!
