2007 Ford Mustang GT California Special Coupe In mid-February 1968, the California Ford Dealers began to market a factory-built, limited-edition Mustang, called the GT/CS, or California Special. The hope was for a targeted production run of 5,000; however, only 4,118 were made, including 251 units that were remarketed in Denver, Colorado, as High Country Special \'68. Production ran for only 5.5 months from mid-February 1968 to early August 1968. This was all in response to the new pony car competition for the upcoming 1968 model year from the Camaro, Firebird, Javelin, and even from Ford\'s Torino and Mercury Cougar. The state of California, alone, was responsible for the sales of 20% of all Mustangs and Thunderbirds in the country, which gave the regional dealers there the clout to ask for and market their own Mustang. Lee Grey was the Southern California district sales manager for Ford and he was looking for something unique to spark the sales of Mustangs in Los Angeles. Ford dealers had tried promotions like the 1967 Rainbow Colored Mustangs, as well as by adding accessories and options to dress up cars for public view. The objective was to make the Mustangs sold in California unique and to look custom made, thus differentiating them from the standard models available elsewhere. As a tribute to the 1968 California Special, Ford added a limited production factory GT/California Special in 2007. The GT/CS option adds 2 tone seats, (Dove or Parchment inserts), unique floor mats, side stripes, side scoops, 18 polished aluminum wheels, rolled exhaust tips, a faux gas cap, (with words California Special), lowered front bumper/valance and unique rear bumper.

This West Coast dream machine features some throwbacks such as the hockey stick cove, B pillar GT50-esque ducted rear quarter windows, fastback styling, menacing inset round foglights and of course the galloping steed on the blackened grille center. A nod to the California Special history is seen in the form of a black side tape stripe that gently fades into the Redfire at the rear of each door. A faux hood scoop is on but the heart of this pony is fed air by a JLT cold air intake. On back, a spoiler in body matching Redfire and the triple tail lights take us back to the 1960\'s styling that is now iconic. Dual exhaust creates the zoom zoom sound and tinted glass makes it look more menacing, although it really needs no help in this department! Just immaculate in this presentation.
