Visitors of the Detroit Auto Show who can’t afford a real 2015 Ford Mustang won’t go home empty-handed. That’s because toy manufacturer Revell is giving away the first official 2015 Mustang model kit free of charge to those who visit Ford’s booth.
To commemorate 50 years of Mustang, Revell will host a “Make ’n Take” event at the Ford stand during the show. At the event, children of all ages (yes, you too) and enthusiasts will be able to build and take home their own free Auto Show Edition 2015 Ford Mustang model before the real pony car even hits the road.
“For nearly 50 years, kids of all ages have been configuring and building their own personal full-size and small-scale Mustangs, and now they can build a new dream car and take it home,” said Steve Ling, Ford car marketing manager.
Revell’s 2015 Ford Mustang model kit can be easily assembled in minutes.
“I am thrilled Revell has the opportunity to work with Ford this year and provide kids and enthusiasts a chance to make and then take our 2015 Ford Mustang models home with them,” said Lou Aguilera, Revell vice president and general manager.
Revell introduced its first scale model of the Ford Mustang in 1968 and has produced more than 3 million small-scale Mustangs ever since together with sister brand Monogram, in scales ranging from 1/64 to 1/12.
The Detroit Auto Show is open for the public from January 18 to January 26.
