The Ford Mustang is known as the world’s best-selling sportscar, which makes sense because it’s been around for so long. Most car people I knew as a kid had a Mustang poster of some kind on their bedroom wall, and for many years those who grew up wanting one in SA were pretty pooched, mainly due to the fact that importing left-hand drive cars into the country wasn’t allowed. That all changed in 2015 when Ford turned the Mustang into a global model available in both left and right-hand drive. Some of those kids were now all grown up and could now afford a new Mustang and as a result, they’ve become quite popular on local roads. We even have the likes of Shelby and RTR available here now, so seeing a monster of a supercharged Mustang fully kitted out with the best of the best components is more common than you’d expect. In 2025, the iconic Mustang nameplate turns 60, and in typical automaker fashion, such a big milestone anniversary is the perfect excuse to make a limited edition car. What makes it even cooler is that at least one of these could make it to local shores if a local bazillionaire makes the order. The Ford Mustang 60th Anniversary Package has been tailored for the GT Premium with a 5.0-litre V8 model only, but that’s not a bad thing. The 60th Anniversary Package gives the Mustang a sort of retro makeover as it draws on the classic styling of the original Mustang from 1965. To keep the package as exclusive as possible, it will have limited production numbers limited to, and no surprises for guessing, the total will be 1,965 cars. "We took inspiration from the original Mustang and applied some of the most special design elements to the latest in this limited production run. Mustang’s design DNA has never been stronger or more enduring than this multi-generational tribute,” says Matt Simpson, Ford Enthusiast Vehicles General Manager.

The Mustang 60th Anniversary package is available for both the tin-top and hard-top versions of the car and it builds on the iconic design cues that have defined the Mustang for generations. Part of the package is a unique dash plaque and exclusive exterior features that help create a special look and feel that brings classic accents of the original car that debuted in 1964 into the modern era. “The design was directly inspired by the clean silhouette of the original car,” said Stefan Taylor, senior designer. “During the design process, we looked closely at the finely detailed elements of the 1965 Mustang, like the fender badges and wheel centre caps. Our focus was capturing the feel of the ‘65, while also staying true to the Mustang as the modern sports car that it is.” Key features of the Ford Mustang 60th Anniversary Package include exclusive 60th Anniversary badges on the fenders and trunk lid that are a modern take on the 1965 Mustang cloisonné badges, unique 20-inch wheels finished in Dark Gravity Gray with bright machined details featuring a retro-themed stamped aluminium centre cap in Vermillion Red inspired by the ‘65 Mustang centre caps, exclusive side graphics that can be had in Iconic Silver or Vermillion Red that are reminiscent of Mustang’s original rocker panel stripes, a new grille with a unique mesh design as a homage to the 1964 version made modern with silver-accented nostrils that are also functional air intakes, smoked headlight housings, silver mirror caps for Race Red and Vapor Blue Mustangs as a homage to the original chrome mirrors (Wimbledon White Mustangs keep body-coloured mirror caps), interior colours available in Space Gray, Carmine Red or Black Onyx and lastly, a numbered 60th Anniversary instrument panel badge.
