We worked closely with LEGO to design a vintage Mustang… — Matt Monroe, Ford
“We worked closely with LEGO to design a vintage Mustang, personalizing the fastback with stripes and decals that harken back to Ford’s racing heritage,” Matt Monroe, Ford licensing manager, said. “This 1968 Mustang fastback race car is a special product that adds even more excitement to Ford’s LEGO Speed Champions lineup.”
The result is a 183-piece kit that results in Fastback with a green body topped by over-the-top gold racing stripes and racing decals. Its minifigure racer is clad in vintage racing suit and the set also includes a Ford-logo‘d timing board.
