Did you know that today is National Mustang Day? Ford Mustang announces today that it was the top-selling sports coupe worldwide in 2017 – now for the third consecutive year. One-third of all sales went to export markets, with 125,809 Mustang coupes and convertibles sold globally last year in 147 countries.

Over the last five years, Mustang enjoyed 10 percent sales growth with female buyers. The iconic Mustang will be off to the races – literally – in early 2019, competing in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. Officially debuting on February 17, 2019, this will be the first time Mustang takes part in the race.

Once considered lost forever, the original 1968 Mustang used in the American hit movie “Bullitt,” featuring Steve McQueen, will make a rare and unexpected appearance on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. from April 17th – April 23rd. This is the first time in history that the movie’s iconic car will be on display.

The movie “Bullitt” celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, and as such, Ford found the owner of the green car Steve McQueen made famous years ago and refreshed it with a new 2019 edition to honor the milestone. This is a perfect stop along the Mall for car enthusiasts, families and fans alike to experience a little movie history in the nation’s capital.
