About 50 years ago, Ford cut its brand new Mustang convertible into three pieces, sent it up the Empire State Building’s elevator, reassembled the vehicle and drove it around the observation deck. Half a century later, Ford did the same thing with the 2015 Mustang, all in order to commemorate the Mustang’s 50th anniversary.
But a lot has changed since 1965. With a bigger, longer and wider vehicle, and the exact same Empire State Building, Ford enlisted the help of DST Industries and actually built an Empire State Building elevator replica to carefully plan and test out the process ahead of time. With an elevator only 36-inches wide, careful planning was definitely in order. Check out some of the neat then and now photos.

Social for good is what it’s all about, and when that good is for the fight against breast cancer, everyone wants to be social. That’s why Ford has established the Ford Warriors in Pink.
Ford Warriors in Pink was established to create hope and awareness for the cause and to encourage all of those affected by breast cancer. The organization supports the fight against breast cancer through their line of apparel, sponsorships, and Courage Talks. All of this has raised over $125 million for the effort. The organization has been established since 1993, and in 2006 Ford made a mission to become more involved in the fight.
Ford now offers “warrior wear,” where 100% of the net proceeds are donated to the charity of the buyer’s choice. Furthermore, Ford sponsors events from Komen Race for the Cure to endorsements in television, magazines and movies. You can also find the Courage Talks with their Courage Models on the Ford website. In this segment, Courage Models (breast cancer survivors) tell their stories and encourage others to keep up the fight. These models include men and women from the age of 18, all the way up to the age of 70 and from all stages of life.
