Ford Mustang turns 50 today

The Ford Mustang hits the big '50' today.
The iconic muscle car was introduced on April 17th, 1964 and sold for just 2400 dollars.
  
Ford was hoping to sell 100,000 Mustangs a year but on the first day they got orders for 22,000.

To help celebrate, the company recreated a 1965 publicity stunt and put one of its new Mustangs on the observation deck of the Empire State Building.
  
Engineers had to break it down into elevator-sized parts and put it back together up top.
