Shults Ford Lincoln To Celebrate Mustang’s 50th Birthday

This year, the iconic American automobile, the Ford Mustang, will mark 50 years of continuous production, placing it in a very exclusive group of auto industry nameplates. To commemorate this milestone, Ed Shults Ford Lincoln will hold a 50 Years of Mustang Celebration on Saturday. With games, prizes and giveaways, it will be an event for families and Mustang fans alike. For more information email erinz@shultsauto.com, or call 484-0121.

Launched April 17, 1964, the Mustang became an overnight sensation. An affordable, sporty car, targeting the growing youth market at the time, the Mustang turned into a car with its own automobile category – the pony car. Seen in movies such as “Bullitt” and “Gone in 60 Seconds,” featured on two postage stamps, and in the songs “Mustang Sally” and “First Gear,” the Mustang has become an icon in American culture, not just the car culture.

Ed Shults Ford Lincoln’s Mustang Celebration will feature a live DJ, giveaways, door prizes, games, and a 99 cent chicken barbecue by All American BBQ. Local Mustang and car clubs are all invited and will be onsite showcasing their classic and unique Mustangs. A highly specialized Stage 3 2014 Roush Mustang will also be on display in the showroom. Car clubs are welcome at 10 a.m. and the festivities are from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., rain or shine.

Ed Shults Ford Lincoln is located at 2257 Washington St., Jamestown. For more information, email erinz@shultsauto.com or call 484-0121.
