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.
