As the world honors 50 years of Ford Mustang, what better way to celebrate one of the most iconic car brands than putting one back on top of one of the most iconic buildings? Getting a 2015 Ford Mustang convertible to the narrow observation deck of the Empire State Building 1,000 feet above the streets of Manhattan is no easy task. Below is a timelapse video of the assembly and a short video on how the crew got ready.
After weeks of preparation, the Ford team finally arrived at the Empire State Building late on the evening of April 14, 2014 with a truckload of parts that would eventually make up a 2015 Mustang convertible. The first night was spent unloading the truck and transferring everything up to the 86th floor in pleasant, early spring conditions. However, the second night, which was dedicated to assembling the car came with a weather encore of one of the worst winters in decades. Watch as a dedicated crew battles mother nature to build a car 1,000 feet above the streets of Manhattan.
