GREENLIGHT PRESENTS '68 FORD MUSTANG HCS & GT/CS

GREENLIGHT PRESENTS '68 FORD MUSTANG HCS & GT/CS

INDIANAPOLIS, IN (August 19, 2009) "Only Mustangs Make it Happen"- especially in California.  In mid-February 1968, California Ford Dealers began to market a factory-built, limited-edition Mustang, called the GT/CS, or "California Special". This was in an effort to respond to the new model car competition in '68 versions of the Camaro, Javelin, Firebird, and Cougar.  The California Special was originally set for a production run of 5,000, however only 4,118 were actually produced.  From that run, 251 units were remarketed in Denver, Colorado known as "High Country Special '68".  Production of these Mustangs ran for 5  months, ending in August 1968.  Unique details of these models include side fender scoops, rear taillights, rear decklid, front fog lights, and hood locks.

In tribute, GreenLight is producing the GT/CS in Candy Apple Red with a White Stripe and the High Country Special in Gold Metallic with Black Stripes and a Black Vinyl Roof.  All replicas feature:
-100% die-cast metal body with authentic factory paint
-Opening doors, hood and trunk
-Carpeted interior with fabric seatbelts
-Window box packaging
-Sequentially numbered chassis
