For the eighth straight year, Ford Motor Company has created a unique, aviation-inspired Ford Mustang to benefit Experimental Aircraft Association youth education programs, including the Young Eagles. The Mustang Apollo Edition will be donated and sold via auction at the Gathering of Eagles charity event at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2015 - the World's Greatest Aviation Celebration.
"The Apollo program delivered astonishing innovations in technology and achieved a national goal of landing the first human on the moon," said Edsel B. Ford II, a member of the Ford board of directors. "The entire program was extraordinary - one of our nation's greatest technological achievements. With this year's stunning Mustang Apollo Edition, we salute that spirit of American ingenuity with the quintessential American automobile - Ford Mustang."
Based on a 2015 fastback Ford Mustang GT, Ford design and engineering teams transformed the 5.0-liter pony car into the Mustang Apollo Edition - a truly unique and highly valued vehicle that will excite enthusiasts and collectors alike.
