The 1967 Ford Mustang GT is soon to be available in Lego form, as the Danish brickmaker announces the classic pony car’s miniature set.
Ford’s licencing agreement with Lego has seen the company create a couple of models recently, with the 1968 model Mustang (in a conspicuously familiar ‘Highland Green’) and M-Sport’s Ford Fiesta WRC car both copping the plastic brick treatment.
While those two models are from the rather small Speed Champions series with 183 and 204 pieces respectively, the new Lego Mustang GT will be a much larger kit with 1471 pieces.
It’ll also cost more at $200, though orders for the set don’t open until March 1.
Its larger model size (34 centimetres long, 14cm wide, and 10cm high) allows for more detail and more customisation, with a blown supercharger, lip spoiler, side exit pipes, and front apron included to give the Lego Mustang a more ‘hot rod’ look. If you wish, that is.

It even comes with four different sets of licence plates, one of which looks to be a NSW state number plate in the promotional images.
Lego has also created several new brick types specifically for the Mustang, which is something it generally avoids doing to utilise its existing brick types’ diversity and likely also keep production costs low.
Some of the new pieces are similar to previous bricks with added Mustang elements, but the five-spoke wheels are said to be completely new for Lego.
The Mustang will join the likes of the Lego Aston Martin DB5 (in Bond-spec), the VW Camper and Beetle, and the Mini Cooper as part of the Creator Expert series.
