Stern Pinball, Inc., the world’s leading maker of real pinball games, has announced the merging of two American icons. Celebrate 50 years of Mustang with a Mustang pinball machine, exclusive to Ford, that drops players into the driver’s seat of one of the hottest cars on the street.
Narrated by professional racing driver Tanner Foust, this machine sets the tone for a fast paced, white-knuckle game. The game comes equipped with top-of-the-line features including artwork painted by famed Ford GT designer Camilo Pardo and the ultimate soundtrack from Sony Music featuring five decades of hits.
“The Mustang is one of the most iconic, American cars ever made,” said Gary Stern, Chairman and CEO of Stern Pinball, Inc. “What better way to celebrate 50 years of Mustang than with the launch of the Ford Mustang pinball game? Everyone at Stern is buzzing with excitement about this launch. From the artwork and game features to the stellar soundtrack, we have created a tribute that will make Mustang and pinball fans worldwide proud.”
Mark Bentley, Ford Global Brand Licensing says, “Ford Motor Company is extremely excited to partner with Stern Pinball on this state-of-the-art Mustang pinball machine. Both Stern and Ford are proud American companies with industry leading, iconic brands. Pinball aficionados from around the globe will appreciate the unique blend of Mustang heritage and Stern craftsmanship in this fantastic machine.”
The Ford Mustang game continues the Stern Pinball tradition of producing quality pinball machines for young and old. The company traces its lineage to the 1930’s in Philadelphia when Sam Stern entered the business of operating pinball games. Sam subsequently became part owner and president of Williams Manufacturing, a pioneer in the pinball industry, and passed his lifelong enthusiasm for the game and the business of pinball to his son, Gary, who founded Stern Pinball. Today, pinball remains one of the world’s favorite pastimes.
