Ford is building one-off ’50 Year’ Mustang convertible to fight MS

The 50th anniversary of the Mustang is a big deal, and in case you forgot that Ford wants to remind you. We have already covered the special anniversary edition of the 2015 Mustang that Ford will be releasing in the fall, called the ’50 Year’ edition. But now Ford will be building a special one-off convertible version of the 50 Year, and it is even for a good cause.

This special edition 2015 Ford Mustang will be raffled off to benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Like the hardtop special edition, the convertible will feature the 5.0-liter Coyote V8 with more than 420 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque.

Also like hardtop, it will feature a whole series of special styling touches inspired by Mustangs of yore. The most noticeable of these distinctions will be chrome accents on the grille, emblem, and tail lamps. Like the first Mustang ever sold, this convertible will be painted in Wimbledon White.

The interior also gets a workover, including two-tone leather and cashmere seats, and cashmere accent stitching throughout the interior. As you would expect with a prestige edition like this, there are also numerous GT 50 Years badges throughout the car.

In the end, all of these changes are basically superficial. But the results do look awfully good. What’s more, it is hard to complain when the proceeds are going to a cause as worthy as finding a cure for Multiple Sclerosis.

If you are interested in helping to fight this debilitating disease, or just want a – slim – chance to win a shiny new Mustang tickets are available for $20.00
