As many West Michigan Mustang aficionados will tell you, 1968 Ford Mustangs are an absolute treasure. Apart from just plain looking cool, this generation saw the addition of the powerful 4.9L V8 engine and was prominently featured in the film ‘Bullitt‘ starring Steve McQueen.
If you love classic Mustangs, Borgman Ford is happy to share that The LEGO Group and Ford have teamed up to produce a faithful recreation of this iconic car – complete with stickers to personalize the vehicle to your own tastes and to celebrate Ford’s racing heritage. The set will join LEGO’s Speed Champions line on March 1st, complimenting the recent arrival of the 2018 Ford Mustang in Grand Rapids.
