The Ford Mustang has been an iconic car since its introduction nearly 50 years ago. For just nine years of that time, the vehicle has been manufactured at the Flat Rock Assembly Plant in Michigan, and the plant recently celebrated the production of its 1 millionth Mustang. 

Flat Rock Assembly honored the milestone with the production of a cherry red 2014 Mustang. 

"Mustang is one of the most beloved nameplates in the industry, with fans around the world and throughout Ford Motor Company," said Raj Nair, group vice president for global product development. "The team here at Flat Rock Assembly has built an outstanding reputation for quality while producing 1 million Mustangs over the last nine years, and we expect that to continue for many years to come." 

The car has undergone many different changes, redesigns and rounds of auto repair throughout the years, and it will only continue to do so. An upcoming, limited edition Mustang is expected to hit the market next year for the automobile's 50th anniversary and will be made available to customers around the world, The Detroit Free Press reports.
