As a part of the Southern Ford Dealers sponsorship of LEGOLAND Florida, the FDAF has funded the building of a life-size 1964 1/2 Ford Mustang, the very first model of the iconic pony car, made completely out of LEGO bricks. The Mustang will replace the LEGO Ford Explorer, which has been on display in front of the Ford Driving School inside the park for the past five years, later this month. After a few cosmetic updates, the LEGO Explorer will be relocated to another location in LEGOLAND Florida, and later make its way to the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, MI where it will remain on display. Unlike the LEGO Explorer, however, the LEGO Mustang has working lights, flashing light-up blinkers, a working horn, and the authentic sound of the Mustang’s engine that can be controlled with the push of a button.
The LEGO Mustang made its debut today at the Mustang Club of America 40th Anniversary Celebration at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, where it will remain throughout the weekend. After the event, the Mustang will make its way to Florida in its custom trailer with clear panels, which allows drivers and spectators to view the car on its journey (photos attached). Once in Florida, the Mustang will stop at FLBlogCon at Full Sail University in Winter Park, which Southern Ford Dealers are the title sponsor, on Saturday, September 24. On September 25th it will be on Tampa Ave (Southside of Raymond James Stadium) before the LA Rams vs Tampa Bay Bucs home game. The vehicle is scheduled to make its LEGOLAND Florida debut in front of the Ford Driving School on Saturday, October 1, where it will remain.
