31 Mar Newport Car Museum Celebrates National Mustang Day
Discounted Admission for Mustang Owners from April 17 through April 22
Monday, April 17 is National Mustang Day, when Mustang clubs around the world hit the road to honor the iconic Pony Car. This special day sprang forth in late 2015 to honor Mustang’s 50th anniversary and now, nine years later, it is the largest one-day community Mustang event of the year.
If you’re a fan of the Newport Car Museum, you know that one of our seven galleries is devoted to Ford/Shelby, and so it is with great enthusiasm that we will observe National Mustang Day not only on April 17 but also every day thereafter through Saturday, April 22 when the Mustang Car Club of New England visits as part of its National Mustang Day outing.
Mustang owners: from April 17-22, show your Mustang key at the front desk and get $4 off an adult ticket.
You’ll want to check out the 19 cars in the Ford/Shelby collection, 11 of which are Mustangs, including an original (one of 34 built) 1965 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R and its equally rare “grandson,” the 2015 GT350R (with the same build number). Take in the hard-to-find (under 100 produced) ’67 Shelby GT350 Paxton Supercharged, 1970 Mustang Boss 429, 2020 GT500 and other beauties to get a sense of pure Mustang magic!
