Ford Mustang Celebrates Production Milestone
“Mustang is one of the most beloved nameplates in the industry, with fans around the world and throughout Ford Motor Company,” said Raj Nair, Ford vice president for global product development. “The team here at Flat Rock Assembly has built an outstanding reputation for quality while producing one million Mustangs over the last nine years, and we expect that to continue for many years to come.”
The one millionth Mustang built at the Flat Rock facility is a Ruby Red 2014 convertible model. The milestone vehicle was driven off the assembly line by Raj Nair and Ed Salna, material planning and logistics manager at the plant and 27-year veteran of Flat Rock Assembly.
“Flat Rock has gone through an amazing transformation over the past year,” said Tim Young, plant manager, Flat Rock Assembly Plant. “We’ve invested $555 million including a state-of-the-art, fully flexible body shop and an upgraded paint shop to make sure we’re continuing to build the best of the best for the next one million Mustangs.”
Ford Mustang production was moved at the Flat Rock Assembly Plant back in 2004, which means the Blue Oval built an average of over 100,000 musclecars per year in the last ten years.
Since its introduction back in 1964, the Ford Mustang was produced in more than 8.5 million examples.
