    Ford brought a Mustang to the top of the Empire State Building Wednesday as part of a publicity stunt for the New York International Auto Show.

    The company is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Mustang. 

    Ford put a bright yellow 2015 Mustang convertible on the 86th floor observation deck of the midtown skyscraper. It's the first time a car has been there since 1965, when Ford similarly put a Mustang convertible there.

    The car had to be broken into five pieces for the ride up the building's elevators and reassembled late at night, when the deck is closed to visitors. It will be on display until Friday.

    The 50 Year Limited Edition models will come in one of the two colors of Ford's logo: white or blue. Buyers can choose a manual or automatic transmission.

    The Mustang was first shown in New York at the 1964 World's Fair.
