“Being the global 50th anniversary for the iconic Mustang, the 2014 event in Christchurch will be a very special occasion and we’re delighted to be a part of it,” said Corey Holter, Managing Director of Ford NZ. “Previous Mustang conventions have been superbly managed by the respective organising clubs with their local sponsorships, and we have greatly appreciated their efforts. Accordingly we’re delighted to go further this year and provide direct support to the organising club, Canterbury, for this one off opportunity in Christchurch.”

The Canterbury Mustang Owners’ Club is equally delighted with Ford NZ’s involvement. Club President Jeff Waghorn recognises the impact and responsibility of Ford’s investment. “Our club had already been humbled by the opportunity of hosting the 50th celebration convention in Christchurch in October. Now, with Ford’s direct support, we are even more motivated to create an event truly befitting the 50th, and befitting the profile of the Ford brand.”

The national Ford Mustang convention will be held in Christchurch over Labour Weekend, from Friday October 24 through Monday October 27. Whilst registrations are not due to open until April, the Canterbury organisers confidently expect an all-time record of over 200 Mustangs, representing the years and models across the 50 years 1964 to 2014. The convention itself, and associated events will feature a public show and exhibition, a “pony run” and a Ruapuna track day.
