Motor Muster

Motor Muster Motor Muster comes to Greenfield Village on Father’s Day weekend each year. This event brings more than 500 automobiles, racecars, motorcycles and bicycles from 1933 to 1973 to the Village. Past Motor Muster weekends featured vehicles including the 1965 Ford Mustang Serial #1, in running condition; a 1905 Ford Model B, the only running example of its kind in existence and; a rare replica of Henry Ford's first vehicle, the 1896 Quadricycle.

There are cars of all kinds during Motor Muster. Decades on display include:

The 1930s and 1940s: The Road to Technology and Style
Automotive styling and technology made great changes in the period from 1933-1949. These great American classics along with the cars that moved everyday Americans are on display.

The 1950s: Under the Hood Horsepower
As the decade progressed, the impact of the jet age became more and more apparent in automobile styling. These automobiles feature ports, fins and chrome through the fabulous fifties.

The 1960s: Ageless Youth
During the 1960s, American tastes in automobiles changed. A new line of smaller, sportier, and more powerful cars became popular, especially among the young car buying public.

The 1970s: Moderate to Muscle
By 1970, the American automobile industry’s offerings ranged from raw muscle to basic economy. While trolling through the 1970’s display area beware, you might just run into a Gremlin.

Aside from the many cars on exhibit, you can also enjoy vehicles ranging from bicycles, racecars, motorcycles/motor scooters, recreational vehicles and trucks.

This is just a sampling of a few of the vehicles that have been on display for the weekend.
