National Ford Mustang Day

April 17th is observed every year as Ford Mustang Day. This holiday celebrates one of the most successful sports cars ever created in the United States. This series of American automobiles has been in continuous production since 1965 and is currently one of Ford’s longest-produced car nameplates.

As of the time of writing, the Ford Mustang is in its 6th generation and is currently the 5th best-selling Ford car. After it went into production, it quickly became the choice of car for action heroes.

A 1968 Shelby Mustang GT500 was used in “The Thomas Crown Affair,” a 1971 Ford Mustang Mach 1 was used in “Diamonds Are Forever,” and a 2007 Shelby Mustang GT500 was used in “I Am Legend.” And those are only a small sampling of the movies this car has been featured in.

The History of Ford Mustang Day

This holiday was created sometime around 2007 by Ford Mustang enthusiasts. It was conceived as a holiday to celebrate this car and the experience of driving one.

It also honors the men and women who restore these iconic cars and transform Mustangs that are destined for the junkyard into beautiful, powerful street machines. Powerful and graceful street machines that need no introduction.

Observing Ford Mustang Day

This holiday can be observed by learning more about the Ford Mustang, checking out iconic Ford Mustangs that were used in movies over the years online, or driving one yourself. Nothing compares to the feeling of driving a Ford Mustang, and anyone who has ever driven one can attest to that fact.
