Just What We've Always Wanted: A Classic Lego Mustang

LEGO is partnering with Ford to create a vintage Mustang you can build yourself.

On March 1st, the $14.99 183-piece 1968 Ford Mustang will be available for purchase.

It features gold wheels, gold stripes, and green paint, as well as a removable windshield where a vintage racing suit-clad driver can be positioned. Included in the kit are race stickers and a timing board.

This follows the recent release of the redesigned 2018 Mustang, which now features an Ecoboost four-cylinder backed by ten-speed automatic transmission or six-speed manual.

The LEGO 'Stang is part of the Speed Champions collection, which includes Ferrari, McLaren, and Buggati supercar kits.

Ford and LEGO® are celebrating Ford's heritage by adding a 1968 Mustang fastback race car to the LEGO Speed Champions lineup.

"The new Ford Mustang LEGO Speed Champions set gives parents and children the chance to share their passions - generations of fans have grown up building LEGO sets and spending time together behind the wheel," explained Myra Lind, marketing manager for LEGO Speed Champions, in a statement. "This partnership of iconic brands allows kids of all ages to enjoy the latest products from two great companies."
