Visitors to the Observation Deck of the Empire State Building Wednesday got a pleasant surprise: a new 2015 Ford Mustang that workers will have carved up into three pieces, stuffed inside the building’s cramped elevators and reassembled on the 86th floor. The move recreates a publicity stunt Ford pulled off nearly 50 years earlier, as part of the grand launch of the original 1964-1/2 Mustang. Making its debut at the New York World’s Fair, the first Ford Mustang proved to be one of the industry’s biggest hits ever, quickly requiring the automaker to fire up three assembly plants – two more than planned – to meet soaring demand.
