When you only have five hours to assemble a 2015 Ford Mustang convertible at the Empire State Building, 1,000 feet above Manhattan, practice makes perfect. Watch the crew from DST Industries do it in 35 seconds. As the world honors 50 years of Ford Mustang, what better way to celebrate one of the most iconic car brands than putting one back on top of one of the most iconic buildings? When Ford and the Empire State Building decided to display a new 2015 Mustang convertible on the 86th floor observation deck, Ford turned to a longtime supplier for the unique expertise required to make this happen. In a world where tiny startups are regularly swallowed up by established behemoths, Ford Motor Company and Romulus, Mich.-based DST Industries have been collaborators for nearly six decades. In 1965 — the only other time in the Empire State Building’s 83-year history a car was displayed on its open-air deck — a DST crew was on hand to show off that Mustang convertible.
