How would you like to buy a brand new 1967 Ford Mustang fastback for a lot less than the Hagerty Price Guide might indicate such a vehicle is worth? Oh, one thing: More than some assembly is required because this Mustang comes in the form of the new Lego Creator Expert Ford Mustang kit, which includes 1,470 pieces.
According to a news release, Ford and Lego Group worked together on the kit. Assembled, the car wears dark-blue bodywork, has a printed Mustang grille badge, and working steering system.
The car “can also be customized with additional muscle car components,” the companies said.
“Customization options include a supercharger, rear ducktail spoiler, beefy exhaust pipes, front chin spoiler and a nitrous oxide tank for an authentic muscle car build experience,” according to the announcement.
The kits will be available on March 1, Leon said, priced at $149.99 in the U.S., $199.99 in Canada, £119.99 in England and for €129.99 in Germany.
The assembled car will be nearly 13 1/2 inches long, 5 1/2 inches wide and nearly 4 inches tall.
Under the hood is a Lego-version of the 390cid V8 engine with such details as battery, hoses and air filter. Doors and trunk lid also open to reveal other components.
“There are few cars on the road that are as instantly recognizable as the Ford Mustang, and it’s exciting to see the iconic car’s combination of design and heritage come through in this Lego set,” Roelant de Waard, Ford of Europe vice president for marketing, sales and service, is quoted in the news release.
“The Ford Mustang is one of the most iconic, symbolic cars in history – and to bring this fan favorite muscle car to life in brick form, with this level of customization, has been exhilarating,” added Lego Creator Expert design leader Jamie Berard. “We can’t wait to see our Lego and Ford Mustang fans’ own creations when they get their hands on this new set.”
