Ford has released some new details about their plan to put a 2015 Mustang Convertible on the 86th floor of the Empire State Building.
According to Ford, planning began in mid-February and DST Industries is heavily involved in the process as their fabricators have cut up the car into sections which will be held together by a custom-built tubular steel subframe. The company also built custom carts and crates which will be used to transport the car, in sections, up the elevators.
According to Mustang chief engineer Dave Pericak, “This week, the band is getting back together as Ford and DST bring the all-new Mustang to the Empire State Building to honor 50 years on sale." He went on to say "We’ve taken the new Mustang to new heights of technology and refinement, so we decided to take it to new heights literally for this celebration.”
If everything goes according to plan, the Triple Yellow 2015 Mustang convertible will be on display at the Empire State Building's observation deck on April 16-17th.
