Exterior

There are a slew of cosmetic changes to this Mustang 50 Year Limited Edition, many are reminiscent of the first generation "Pony".

Up front you is a fascia that appears to have been inspired by the 1968 version with gills on both sides of the grille. Of course the iconic steed chrome emblem is largely displayed in its center.

Around back, the traditional tri-bar taillights also get a touch of chrome with their surrounds.
Most noticeable in its profile are the glass louvered rear windows (ala the 1965 fastback) and the 19 inch spoke wheels.

There will be two color offerings reserved just for the limited edition. The original 1964 hue of "Wimbledon White" and "Kona Blue."
