A 2015 Ford Mustang sits atop the observation deck of New York’s Empire State Building Wednesday in celebration of the sports car’s 50th birthday. The automobile was brought up in separate parts and assembled atop the skyscraper, where it will stay on display for a couple of days.

The Mustang’s visit recreates an event from 1964, when a prototype Mustang was also assembled on the Empire State Building’s observation deck.
