Ford Motor Co. marked production of the 10 millionth Mustang with celebrations Wednesday at the automaker's headquarters and at the Flat Rock Assembly Plant where the iconic sports auto is made.

Another cadre of Mustang owners also planned to parade from Ford's headquarters in Dearborn, where the Mustang was first built, to Flat Rock. There, the cars were organized into a configuration that spelled out "10,000,000".

The first serialised Mustang (VIN 001) produced in 1964 sported the same colour, with a three-speed manual gearbox and a V8 engine. It's been the best-selling sports auto in the world over the last three years. Interestingly, while you can buy a standard white Mustang in showrooms in the United States today, this particular shade, Wimbledon White is actually not on offer.

As you'd expect, Ford has specced its modern milestone vehicle to match the original. sort of. "It's changed the perception because of its popularity".

Iconic muscle auto crosses major milestone, having been in production for 54 years; 10 millionth example pays tribute to the first serialised Mustang.

Although the celebrations will largely take place at the Flat Rock plant, the Mustang called Dearborn home for the vast majority of its life.

The iconic vehicle has been around for 54 years now.

"Fifty-four years ago I bought a auto, (and) we're still talking about it", said Wise, who bought the baby blue Mustang for $3,447.50. Back in the late 1980s, Ford looked to terminate Mustang production and replace American's beloved sportscar with what became the Ford Probe. "I said I feel like a movie star at 76 as well as I did at 22".
