In July of this year, we got some incredible views of Pluto. Now, Ford is making its own contribution to the final frontier with the Ford Mustang Apollo Edition.
According to a press release from Ford, the American Automaker created the Ford Mustang Apollo Edition to celebrate the Apollo Moon Missions.
The Mustang has been designed to resemble the rockets that carried the brave astronauts out into the vast unknown. The interior also reflects the spirit of innovation, with unique amenities and features inside.
The modifications were performed by MAD Industries, led by designer Chris Magnum.
This one-of-a-kind Mustang was auctioned off at the Gathering of Eagles Charity event on July 23. All proceeds benefit the Experimental Aircraft Associations youth program, the Young Eagles.
Ford has auctioned off an exclusive Mustang to support the Young Eagles for eight years in a row now.
“Ford has been a committed sponsor of EAA and AirVenture for more than 15 years – bringing incredible value to those who make Oshkosh the highlight of their aviation year,” said Jack Pelton, EAA chairman of the board, in the press release. “With its eighth Mustang donation, Ford continues to excite with its specialty vehicles, which reflect the depth of the company’s commitment and which allow EAA to provide support to its valuable programs and dedicated members in helping us grow the next generation of aviators.”
Here at Sanderson Ford, it makes us proud to represent an automaker so dedicated to the future of aviation.
