Ford Reveals How it Got a 2015 Mustang Convertible Up the Empire State Building
The all-new 2015 Ford Mustang Convertible will be on display atop the 86th floor of the Empire State Building this week. But just how will it get there? No helicopters, cranes, or other fancy equipment are involved. Instead, the Mustang will manage to get there as any visitor would—in the elevator.Ford pulled the same stunt 50 years ago when the first Mustang debuted. And it pretty much happened through the same process. But the original Mustang's design hindered it from getting up the building. “The only real problem we had in 1965 was the steering wheel,” said retired DST technician Claude Cochran. “When we tried to roll the middle section of the car with the windshield removed into the elevator, the top of the wheel stuck out a bit too far through the door, so we had to tip the cart a bit to get it in.” The vehicle will be on display at the Empire State Building observation deck April 16-17 from 8 a.m. to 2 a.m. The debut coincides with the New York Auto Show, which runs April 18-27.
