Just had her 50th a couple of months ago. Built on August 14, 1970 at Dearborn Assembly Plant. 1971 model year production began there on August 3, 1970, making this a very early (1,779th Ford) build. Sold to her first owner at Richards-Heath Ford, Villa Rica, Georgia, on September 25, 1970.

The sportslamps are NOS replacements. I love tracking down NOS parts. Part detective work, part scavenger hunt.

Happy 50th Birthday.  Rolled off the Dearborn line 50 years ago today.  Car has evolved over the years from a basic 302 - C4 - 3.00: 1 open rear end Sportsroof to a 460 - C6 - 3.73:1 trac-lok almost clone Mach 1.

My 'Stang turned 50 in September.  Built September 3, 1970, sold September 30th.  It now has 74,000 miles on the clock.  Numbers matching and mostly original, she wears her 50 years better than I do, LOL.  Pewter paint with Black interior, Ram-Air "J" code.
