Ford Celebrates Mustang’s 50th Anniversary with New Logo

Ford has revealed a special commemorative logo and a marketing campaign that will see merchandise sold from over 50 different companies to celebrate the 50th anniversary of one of its most significant vehicles, the Mustang. Jackets, shirts, watches and even pinball machines will be included in this merchandise, all of which will be branded with the new logo.

The new logo was a result of a design contest put on by Ford chief officer J Mays, which was won by designer Michael Thompson. Typically, the logo features the famous galloping pony which has been seen on the Mustang since it was first introduced. With festivities starting at the upcoming 2013 New York Auto Show, Ford will be celebrating all year long. April 17, 2014 is the Mustang’s official 50th birthday, as the original Mustang was unveiled at the 1964 New York World’s Fair.
