Just as the 1965 Mustang was a runaway hit, so was its counterpart pedal car, selling over 93,000 units by Christmas of its first year in production. Four decades later, the pedal car with the Mustang logo is back and demand extends beyond kids, to their parents and grandparents as well – some of whom may have owned an original.
“Mustang is an icon that appeals to kids of all ages. The pedal car gives our youngest fans a chance to get behind the wheel of their very first Mustang a bond that we hope continues for a lifetime,” said Mark Bentley, Ford licensing manager.
To start youngsters off right, Ford is donating 100 of the iconic Mustang pedal cars to the US Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program.
