Having previously withheld complete pictures of the 50 Years of Mustang Limited Edition cabinet and translite artwork, Stern have today released it and we have it here for you.
The $8,495 LE game features metallic blue powder-coated legs, side rails, hinges and lock bar, matching the blue theme of the artwork. In the backbox, the translite - not a backglass, even with the LE - contrasts the design of the original 1965 Mustang with the new 2015 model.

As we saw before, the playfield features the 1/24 scale model Mustang mounted on a rotating turntable, just like the $1,000 cheaper Premium model

Once again, the cabinet and backbox art is by Camilo Pardo, with John Youssi believed to be behind the playfield art package.
Here's how Stern announced the newly-revealed Limited Edition cabinet and translite artwork:
Stern Pinball Unveils “Top Secret” Images of the 50-Years-of-Mustang Limited Edition
MELROSE PARK, IL – April 17, 2014 – Stern Pinball, Inc., the world's oldest and largest producer of arcade-quality pinball games, announces the feature rich “50 Years” of Mustang Limited Edition Pinball. The “50 Years” LE joins Stern’s Boss Mustang Premium and Mustang Pro models to complete the Mustang Pinball line.

Stern Pinball’s “50 Years” Limited Edition machine offers exclusive commemorative game features and artwork featuring Mustangs from the original car through the all-new Mustang GT. Stern’s design team created an innovative art package that features genuine Ford Kona Blue cabinet trim identical to the color of the “50 Years” GT. In addition, the cabinet art is rendered on a unique satin glow brushed aluminum finish to accentuate the dazzling new car! This innovative new cabinet art process was developed by Stern to give the car a three dimensional look and feel. The game also features genuine Mustang engine sounds and a Sony Music soundtrack of eight generational cruising tunes which put the player in the driver’s seat of a Mustang for driving adventures and exhilarating racing.
The game incorporates a mix of classic pinball features and cutting-edge technology to let players race with some of the greatest Mustangs of all time while building a dream collection as they progress through the game. The playfield invites players to go drag racing, rallying, drifting and road racing as they string a series of shots together in pursuit of a high score. “We are thrilled to honor Mustang’s 50th Anniversary with this outstanding LE model,” said Gary Stern, Chairman and CEO of Stern Pinball, Inc.
