Lego is helping to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Mustang Club of America this weekend by putting a life-size Lego model of a 19641/2 Ford Mustang on display at the MCA’s 40th Anniversary Celebration at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The 1:1 scale 19641/2 Ford Mustang model was built by hand at Lego’s US headquarters in Enfield, Connecticut. It was unveiled to the world yesterday, at the start of the MCA’s 40th Anniversary event, and will make several more stops across the US before reaching its final display location: the Ford Driving School attraction at Legoland Florida Resort.

The whole Ford Mustang model tips the scales at 1,712 pounds, according to Jalopnik, of which 960 pounds are attributable to Lego bricks. The remaining 752 pounds is claimed by an aluminum chassis, without which the model would likely crumble, prompting one heck of a lengthy pickup effort. Throughout the model is an extraordinary attention to detail, with accurate badging, wheels, windshield wipers, and working headlights and taillights.

The life-size Ford Mustang recreation has even been wired to produce realistic horn and engine sounds.

This rather incredible 19641/2 Ford Mustang model will be on display at Indianapolis Motor Speedway through September 4th.
