Answered my own question...found this:

As a token commemoration of the Mustang’s 25th anniversary, Ford placed a small running horse emblem engraved with the words “25 Years” on the passenger side dash of all Mustangs manufactured from mid-April 1989 to late production 1990. This, of course, included Mustangs from both model years 1989 and 1990. Mustangs sold during this time period also had the same running horse emblem pictured in the background of the window sticker. After 1990, the running horse emblem remained on the dash without the “25 Years” engraving at the bottom.

There is no actual 25th anniversary GT models... although to commemorate the 1989 and 1990 models they had the dash emblem that read "25 years"... the only recognized 25th anniversary model in the "Ford Special Editions" book, was the 1989special order (500 total) 5.0 Mustang LX "CFD" (Carolina Ford Dealers) 25th anniversary special edition which was a top NASCAR sponsor and Jeff Gordon's 1st ride. Here are more details:
