LEGOLAND Florida Resort will unveil a 1:1 replica of Ford’s iconic “1964½” Mustang coupe during Mustang Club of America’s 40th anniversary celebration. Built brick by brick at The LEGO Group’s U.S. headquarters in Enfield, Connecticut, the life-size model will make its public debut at the legendary Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Thursday, Sept. 1.
Partnering with long-time sponsor Southern Ford Dealers, the resort wanted to build a life-size Ford vehicle that would resonate with guests of all ages. Created with thousands of colorful LEGO bricks by a team of veteran Master Model Builders, the stunning model re-creates the first Ford Mustang, which debuted at the New York World’s Fair on April 17, 1964.
After its initial appearance in Indianapolis, the LEGO Mustang will make several stops around the country before arriving at the popular, kid-sized Ford Driving School attraction at LEGOLAND Florida Resort, where it will remain on permanent display.
