The Ford Mustang finally has a place to call home

After 55 years, the Ford Mustang finally has a place to call home. The Mustang Owner’s Museum is located in Concord, NC. It is just a short drive (less than a mile) away from Charlotte Motor Speedway. At the time of this article being written, the Museum is still under construction and is planning its Grand Opening on April 17th, 2019. Continue reading below to get more information about the Grand Opening and 55 Years of Mustang Event.

Mustang Owner’s Museum Construction

The Museum building is roughly 35,000 sq. ft. That’s a whole lot of room for Mustangs and Mustang related memorabilia! I had the opportunity to attend National Mustang Day back in 2017 and view the grounds before construction began. Below you can see progression images that the Museum has gone through since late 2017.

Footings have been placed and the steel frame is starting to take shape.

The steel frame is complete and the first pre-cast wall is going into place.

Before all of the walls and floor was poured, the Mustang Owner’s Museum invited some of their Museum members to visit the construction site. Members were able to bring their Mustangs inside the Museum and get an update on the construction process.

The floor has been poured! So much room for Mustang activities.

The parking lot has been graded and is ready for pavement to be poured.

The Preview Museum

While the Museum is under construction, a Preview Museum opened to give Mustang enthusiasts a “preview” of what you could expect to see when the Museum opens on April 17th, 2019. Over the 10 month span of being open, the Preview Museum had attracted several hundred guests on a local, national and international scale.

The Preview Museum opened in March of 2018. There were several Mustangs that were on display and a lot of unique Mustang memorabilia. Some of the vehicles included new ROUSH Mustangs from Tindol ROUSH Performance, a restored ’75 Mustang II, 2014 Shelby GT500 SuperSnake Widebody and a Playboy Pink ’67 Mustang.

The Preview Museum closed down in December of 2018. It is now being used as a workshop to organize memorabilia and put together displays that are going into the Mustang Owner’s Museum permanent location.
