Sanderson Ford and Roush Performance Team Up To Raise Money For Military Assistance Mission

Sanderson Ford is at it again and this time, they are teaming up with Roush Performance for a double dose of American muscle in the form of the “Jack Roush Tribute” Mustang.  To be sold at the Barret-Jackson Auction, this Mustang has a very special purpose.

With the final auction price totaling to $175,000, not only will the proud owner have the 50th Anniversary Mustang AND the 30th Anniversary of Jack Roush’s Champion Motorcraft Mustang all in one, but 100% of the proceeds will be going to benefit the Military Assistance Mission (MAM).  MAM is an organization that “serves local Arizona military, their families, and wounded heroes with financial and morale aide”, as stated by the MAM CEO, Margy Bons.

Margy Bons started MAM in honor of her son, Michael Adam Marzano, who fought and died for our country in Iraq.

The 2015 Ford Mustang was donated by Sanderson Ford and made into what it is by the Roush Performance team.  With a Phase 2 Roush-charged 5.0-liter V8 power plant that boasts an incredible 727hp, courtesy of Roush Performance’s R2300 TVS supercharger, this Mustang has more horsepower per liter than any other American muscle care on the market.

And the fun doesn’t stop there!  The white exterior keeps it classy while the red interior gives it a dangerous feel.  Want to not only be the envy of all of your friends, but also help a great cause?  You’ve come to the right place!

2015 Ford Mustang Anniversary Edition

2015 represents the 50th anniversary for the Ford Mustang, an enduring icon of American muscle. The classic sports car is just as relevant and viable as it was 50 years ago, even though it is now in its sixth generation of design.

To celebrate, Ford is making an Anniversary Edition Mustang, but only producing1,964 of them (to commemorate the year that production first began on the Mustang). The limited edition model will feature a powerful 5.0-liter V-8 engine. You can get it in either 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic. One of the coolest options is the availability to select the car in Wimbledon White, the color of the first Mustang.

The most interesting aspect to this anniversary celebration is that many of those who head the company are in line for the special edition. Bill Ford, grandson of Henry Ford, has already claimed number one. Mark Fields, the CEO, will also get one.

You know you are doing business with a healthy company when the top brass clamor for the product as much you do! Come to Sanderson Ford today to check out some of the company’s other great vehicles, as well as the iconic pony car!

The 2015 Ford Mustang Will Feature a Knee Airbag

Of all the things the 2015 Ford Mustang will do, safety is the top priority for Ford’s newest model of America’s favorite muscle car.  We’ve heard many tidbits leaked about what the new Mustang will do, including unbelievable handling and a great design, but the most recent news has us really excited for the future of this car.  An innovative new glovebox airbag will prevent passengers from knee injuries in a crash.

All of the 2015 Ford Mustang’s will have the active knee airbag as a standard feature, plus, it will be the first vehicle among Ford’s incredible lineup that will receive the knee airbag system.  This knee airbag system is 65% lighter than a traditional airbag and uses up to a 75% smaller inflator.  The airbag is virtually undetectable when you look at the glovebox door.

We are not sure if the knee airbag will show up in other Ford vehicles, but at Sanderson Ford, we think it’s a great idea, so why not?  And if you want to take a look at the all-new 2015 Ford Mustang, then visit our showroom today!

 

2015 Ford Mustang Convertible On Top of the World

2015 Ford Mustang convertible

As we posted in a previous blog, Ford intended to recreate the scene from the 1964 World’s Fair with the Mustang convertible atop the Empire State Building in New York City.  And 50 years later, just that has happened.  The 2015 Ford Mustang convertible now sits proudly on the observation deck of the Empire State Building, with a clear view of the Big Apple.

You would have never guessed that this strikingly yellow beauty had to actually be cut apart to be taken up the only freight elevator in the Empire State Building.  A company based in Michigan split the Mustang into parts that would fit on the elevator.  They built a mockup of the elevator, and then proceeded to make cuts on another pre-production Mustang convertible.

From the videos below, you can see how precise everything had to be to ensure this historical repeat.  At Sanderson Ford, we are also able to tell that their efforts weren’t wasted!  The 2015 Ford Mustang convertible looks beautiful overlooking Manhattan!

2015 Ford Mustang Convertible to Recreate a Scene from 1964

We have seen some great things out of the Ford Mustang over the years, but one of the most iconic moments will always be when the 1965 Ford Mustang convertible prototype sat atop the Empire State Building during the 1964 World’s Fair in New York.

Ford announced that they will be doing the very same thing for the 50th anniversary of the classic muscle car.  Mark Fields, the Ford chief operating officer stated “New York is one of the greatest cities in the world, and it’s the place where the Ford Mustang story began 50 years ago.  We’re thrilled to be visiting the architectural landmark that has been the heart of the Manhattan skyline for 83 years with the newest generation of the car that is the soul of Ford Motor Company.”

The only way to get the 2015 Ford Mustang convertible up to the top of the Empire State Building is the same way they did it in 1964: by physically slicing the car into pieces and taking it up the elevator.  Ford engineers have figured out exactly where to make the cuts and once they get it to the top of 86th-floor observatory, they will only have 6 hours to put it back together.

“It is a privilege to celebrate the new Ford Mustang, to bring together our two iconic brands, and to make new history with Ford.  The Empire State Building and Ford Mustang are both historic innovators – today, as in the past,” said Empire State Realty Trust Chairman, President and CEO Anthony E. Malkin.

At Sanderson Ford, we can’t wait to see the 2015 Ford Mustang convertible atop one of the most well-known buildings in NYC.  If you are interested in visiting the Mustang convertible, it will be available for viewing from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m. April 16-17.
