2018 marks the 50th anniversary of the 1968 Mustang fastback race car, so Ford and LEGO® are celebrating. The Mustang has a long, exciting history of being one of America’s most famous and favorite race cars, and this year, LEGO® decided to design a LEGO® Ford Mustang for its LEGO® Speed Champions lineup.
LEGO® sets are a pastime that unites generations, so parents and children alike will be excited to embark on building the 183-piece LEGO® 1968 Ford Mustang. The tiny version of this classic car features a green paintjob, gold racing stripes, and, of course, the Mustang logo on the front. Ford worked with LEGO® designers to create the perfect small replica of this vintage Mustang, which includes distinctive logos and decals from Ford’s history. For children, this replica is a great way for them to learn about the history of American auto manufacturing, and for adults, this provides a nice, nostalgic addition to your desk that you can tinker with while at work.
The LEGO® Speed Champions lineup is no stranger to Ford vehicles and contains various other Ford vehicles besides the 1968 Ford Mustang fastback race car. The series includes the Ford GT40, Ford Raptor truck, and the 2015 Ford Mustang.
On the other hand, if you’re more interested in the real Ford Mustang than the LEGO® version, you can always check out the latest and most powerful iteration of the famous muscle car at Gurley Motor Co.
