Ford kicked off the Mustang's 60th anniversary on Wednesday. It was on this day, April 17, that the original model first debuted at the World's Fair in 1964. The Blue Oval will be hosting a birthday event at Charlotte Motor Speedway later today, but ahead of that it revealed a special edition Mustang named, appropriately enough, the 60th Anniversary Package.

The 60th Anniversary pulls inspiration from the classics, starting with simple five-spoke, 20-inch alloys at all four corners. The car you see here is doused with Wimbledon White paint, just like the original. Contrasting stripes down low make it very clear what this model celebrates. They're red here, though buyers have the choice of Race Red or Vapor Blue paint, which both come with silver stripes. Old-school 5.0 badges sit aft of the front wheels, while the Nite Pony package's smoked headlights give the 60th Anniversary a slightly meaner look. Between the headlights, there's a retro grille mesh design and contrasting silver nostrils. Going for the blue or red will net buyers some shiny metallic side mirror caps, too. Inside, there's a unique, serialized dash plaque.

Sweet five-spoke wheels and a heritage Wimbledon White paint mark out this celebratory model.

Those wanting the Mustang 60th Anniversary package will have to opt for the highest GT Premium trim. Sorry, EcoBoost buyers. Ford will be giving folks the option of convertible or coupe however, as well as either the six-speed manual or 10-speed automatic.

As a nod to that original model year, Ford will produce just 1,965 examples of the 2025 Mustang 60th Anniversary package. Expect pricing closer to its arrival in the fourth quarter of this year.
