Forums can be very informative when browsing through endless topics relating to your ride. On TheMustangSource.com, a Ford social media representative posted this tidbit of information: “The 2014 ½ will be the 50th Anniversary edition. It will be added to production for a limited run sometime during the year.”
Once that was posted, it was later retracted. “Okay, we made a mistake. We misunderstood the information and we’re sorry for causing all this confusion.”
Well, maybe it just wasn’t the right time to release this information causing him/her to take back the statement. According to sources at Ford, there will be just 1,000 Ford Mustangs produced as the 2014 ½ for the 50th anniversary. These will be the first Mustangs produced on the all-new S550 platform. Each one of these limited-edition Mustangs produced will have a unique VIN and build number.
Rumors swirling about the limited-edition Mustang include a 5.0L V-8 capable of 450 horsepower. It’s not getting a significant bump, but a bump nonetheless. The sticker price for these cars is likely to be outrageous considering that these will be instant collectors’ models.
