2014.5 Anniversary Edition Mustang Spied!

2014.5 Anniversary Edition Mustang Spied!

Our friends over at Mustang6G recently spied what they think is likely the 2014.5 anniversary edition of the Mustang out for testing. After seeing their photos, we agree that it's almost certainly the 2014.5 edition, and we definitely think it looks great!

The 2014.5 Mustang

The 2014.5 Mustang is a special version of the S550 design, and we're pretty excited about some of the changes that were made which throwback to the 1964.5 version. The 2014.5 prototype was spied in Michigan by a photographer connected with Mustang6G, and he snapped a number of great shots that really allow us to see what it should look like.

Here's a few of the big highlights:

  • The New Grille: The 2014.5 Mustang has a near exact replica of the pony corral that was first found in the 1965 Mustang. While it's darkened in these spy shots, we're pretty sure it will be shining brightly in chrome when the production version hits.
  • Window Louvers: From looking at the shots, both rear quarter windows are covered--it's hard to make out, but they are window louvers that's covering them. We're thinking this bit of throwback styling will make the production version, too.
  • Wheels: We love the FR500 style wheels, which also harken back to the wheels used on the original 1965.
  • Color: Looking at the photos and after reading some of the speculation, the color of the model out for testing could either be Oxford White or Wimbledon White. Both throwback to previous Mustangs. The Oxford White was originally found in 2003-2004 Cobras, though we suspect the final version of the white will be closer to Wimbledon White, which is a near match to the paint color on the first Mustang. Other colors will surely be available, but the white is the one that takes us back to the earliest Mustangs.

It's expected that the 2014.5 Mustang is only going to be available in the GT trim, with the 5.0L V8. Beyond what's already been discussed, it should be pretty loaded with options, too, though all of that comes with a pretty decent price tag. No speculation on what that price actually is at this point, but it probably won't be as cheap as the original 1965 version!

When the 2014.5 Mustang hits the market, we expect it to sell out FAST! There are only expected to be 1,000 copies produced, so those interested will need to get a move on when this once in a lifetime version gets released.

Hurry, or all you'll see is the taillights of the 2014.5 Mustang!

2014.5/2015 Mustang Public Unveiling

The 50th Birthday of the Mustang is right around on the corner, on April 17, 2014. While we've already said we're going to be at both 50th Anniversary Celebrations in Las Vegas and Charlotte, New York is also hosting the annual New York Auto Show during those same dates, and we're expecting to see something new from Ford there, too! The question is...what are they going to show us?

We think it could be this 2014.5 Mustang that we just shared. Or it could be the new Shelby GT350, which has also been spied a few times recently in heavy camouflage.

No matter what Ford unveils at the auto show, the CJ Pony Parts team will be there to share it with you! Two members of our team, including our videographer, will be at the New York Auto Show and will be bringing us whichever 2014.5/2015 Mustang that is released, with videos, photos and commentary.

Of course, we won't leave you hanging...we'll have this info as soon as it gets to us and will get it up on our blog and on FacebookGoogle+Twitter and Instagram. Just keep following along with CJ Pony Parts to get the latest information on the 2015 Mustang.

Don't forget, if you want to get caught up on everything we know so far, check out our extensive 2015 Mustang information on the CJ Pony Parts website!
