Since 1973, the National Inventors Hall of Fame Museum (NIHF) of Alexandria (Virginia) collects the top inventions that have made possible the evolution of the society up to what it is today. Since some days ago, the visitors of this museum u.s. have been found with a new piece in the exhibition, which pays homage to a very curious and representative the 50 years of the Ford Mustang and its evolution.
A sculpture that unites the two halves of Ford Mustang, each representing 60% of the original vehicle. To the left, a model of the year 2015, to the right, one of 1965. At a glance it is possible to see how the pony car’s most famous story has been evolving, growing in size on the whole, although in this last generation and the previous one have been recovered the traits so characteristic of the first Ford Mustang.
This commemorative sculpture of the Ford Mustang is part of the new permanent exhibition of the museum, call Intellectual Property Power and that seeks to show visitors the importance of intellectual property. The Ford Mustang is a very good example, since it is a model easily recognizable, and an icon. When the Mustang was launched in the 60’s, there was no patent on his unmistakable style. In fact, these did not arrive until 18 months later, when Ford realized that this car was a great success, having sold over a million units.
Now, the intellectual property of the vehicles has changed a lot. Only the Ford Mustang Convertible last generation that form part of the half of this sculpture has 36 patents stylistic, trying to preserve their own identity. This sculpture, so representative will be accompanied by monitors and speakers that will show and explain some of the patents of intellectual property more potent. Even it will be possible to listen to the different sound at idle between the V8 engine of the Ford Mustang in 1965 and 2015.
A pity that the representation of these Mustang does not continue to lag behind
If someone asks if Ford has happened to tear into the rotaflex to a Ford Mustang of 1965, may be quiet. It is a recreation of modern construction, respecting 100% the specifications of the original model, yes.
