Ford's Mustang turns 50 years old. We got to test drive the 2014 model and what a beauty that is.

Soon the 2015 lineup of GT 500's, coupes, premiums and deluxe's will be released.

Ramey Ford's Internet Sales Manager told 59News what Ford is unveiling specifically for Mustang's birthday.

"There's going to be only 1,964 limited edition mustangs to commemorate the 50th anniversary," said L. T. Schoonover.

Also to celebrate Mustang's birthday, Ford is unveiling a 2. 3 Liter Eco-boost 4 cylinder with twin turbo. It's the 1st time in almost 30 years that Ford has put a twin turbo in a Mustang engine.
