Ford is celebrating two milestones today as they have announced the Flat Rock Assembly plant has built their one millionth Mustang on the car's 49th anniversary.

The millionth model, a Ruby Red convertible, was driven off the assembly line by the plant's material planning and logistics manager, Ed Salna, as well as Ford group vice president for product development Raj Nair.

In a statement Nair said “Mustang is one of the most beloved nameplates in the industry, with fans around the world and throughout Ford Motor Company. The team here at Flat Rock Assembly has built an outstanding reputation for quality while producing one million Mustangs over the last nine years, and we expect that to continue for many years to come.”

To date, Ford has sold over 8.5 million Mustangs and those numbers will likely increase when the next-generation model is introduced.
