To celebrate 50 years of "automotive innovation," Ford created a unique display built from 1965 and 2015 models of its iconic Mustang brand. Each half of the car has its own functional driver component.
The hybrid-Mustang was revealed on May 4 at the National Inventors Hall of Fame museum in Alexandria, Virginia, where it will be a permanent part of the "Intellectual Property Power Exhibit."
"Visitors to the museum will be able to sit in either side of the car and directly compare features and styling details; From the AM radio, roll-up window, vent air window, and optional retractable color-keyed and seat belts available in 1965, to the working touch screen display in the 2015 model," according to a Ford press release. "Some patents and other intellectual property will be displayed on accompanying monitors and over speakers. Visitors to the display will also be able to hear the sounds of the original 1965 Mustang V8 engine and a 2015 Mustang V8 engine at idle."
