50th ANNIVERSARY MUSTANG EXHIBITION OPENS AT SARATOGA AUTO MUSEUM

Opening Weekend Activities Announced for Mustang at 50: An American Icon

 

The Saratoga Automobile Museum’s featured summer exhibition celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Ford Mustang begins on Friday, June 13 with three days of activities. Mustang at 50: An American Icon will illustrate the evolution of the Mustang and its impact on automotive history, its role in auto racing, and its place in popular culture. The exhibition features cars from each generation of the Mustang starting with early production cars, including examples of the storied muscle cars created by Carroll Shelby’s collaboration with Ford, and ending with a 2014 TdF Mustang built by Holman Moody. Several short videos will highlight various aspects of Mustang history. The exhibition also includes examples of the creative advertising campaign that brought the Mustang to national attention and prominence in the mid-century, “Mad Men” era. Visitors and the general public are invited to share their Mustang stories and photos in the “Mustang Memories” section of the exhibition, which will highlight community contributions.
