LEGOLAND Is Towing a Lego ’64-And-A-Half Mustang Across the Country

Somewhere in the Northeast or the Upper Midwest, a Ford F-150 is towing a ’64-and-a-half Mustang in an enclosed trailer. This is not especially unusual. What’s unusual is that this Mustang is made entirely out of Legos, and the enclosed trailer is transparent. See the Ford Mustang models for sale near you

This is the work of LEGOLAND Florida, an organization that’s currently hauling a full-size ’64-and-a-half Mustang from Connecticut to Indiana, where the Lego Mustang will debut later this week at Indianapolis Motor Speedway during the Mustang Club of America’s 40th-anniversary celebration.

The Mustang is perched inside a transparent, enclosed trailer covered with Lego-block graphics and hashtags reading "#BrickPony," as that’s what LEGOLAND is calling the Mustang. When it arrives, LEGOLAND says, "#BrickPony will lead a huge parade of Mustangs representing more than 50 years of Ford Mustang in an attempt to break the Guinness World Record on Friday, September 2." No word yet on how a car made entirely of Legos will pull off this feat.

More impressive than the fact that LEGOLAND has created a 15-foot-long Mustang made out of Legos, or that they’re trailering it across the country like a real Mustang, is how they made the #BrickPony: with 165 layers and thousands of Lego and Duplo bricks that make up a giant internal structure under the skin. Interestingly, they have experience with this sort of thing, as they built a Lego Ford Explorer a couple of years ago.

Once the Lego Mustang completes its duties in Indianapolis, it’ll permanently reside at LEGOLAND Florida. Find a Ford Mustang for sale

  1. From what I read elsewhere, it isn’t made entirely out of Legos, it has an about 740 pound aluminum sub frame. Tre cool, nonetheless.

  2. I just wish they would have added some technic/mindstorm influence and made the tires dense rubber over a solid plastic wheel, with the familiar X axel, coupled to a small electric motor system that could only propel it up to about 5-10mph. Then it could be actually leading the parade, rather than merely being the second car present (since the truck/tow car is the first car there). 

    • Yeah, they’ve been doing this sort of thing for a long time.  I have pictures of a LEGO XC90 from the 2006 Auto Show.
