As the 50th Anniversary of the Ford Mustang approaches, Ford Motor Company has been releasing some great images and stories concerning Mustang history.  This is another very interesting story!  In October of 1965, Ford worked with the Empire State Building management to put a brand new 1966 Mustang Convertible on the top of the famed building.

Ford engineers "disassembled" the car in pieces that would fit the building's service elevators to transport them to the roof.  Special brackets were built for reassembly once the trip was made to the top.
