Story City, Iowa – Ford has delivered its nine millionth Mustang, a GT convertible ordered and purchased by Thomas Krumm of Story City, Iowa.
Krumm, a farmer from rural Story City, became interested in Mustangs through his daughter Rachel, an enthusiast who saved enough money to buy her first Mustang at age 17.
The Mustang is Ford’s longest-running nameplate, having been introduced on April 17, 1964 at the New York World’s Fair. It sold 419,000 units in its first twelve months on the market and topped the one million mark in its first two years, setting a sales record for a single model. Today, one out of every two sports cars sold in America is a Mustang.
