History of Mustang through the Newspaper's Eyes
Looking through local newspapers in the US and Canada between 1964 to 1970 has allowed us to put together a different type of history of the Mustang. It is a history of the Mustang through the eye's of the newspaper with a focus on Mustang advertisements. This is an interesting view of the Mustang throughout the years because we can see what was important each year through photos, graphics, models, written text, phrases, etc. Most unexpectedly it also shows an interesting view of why styles changed and how special promotions created special and limited edition Mustangs.
1969 Mustang 4.1 Litre Special
Ever hear about the 1969 Mustang 4.1 Liter Special? We found some data possibly confirmed by a viewer that owns one. We think they were all were delivered to the Indianapolis order district (DSO 46) with special order numbers 0572, 0573, and 0574. The owner says this special order Mustang came with an automatic L-code 4.1 liter (250ci) 6-cylinder engine; special order exterior green WT7034, yellow or orange paint; white and gold pinstripe; and a 4.1 Litre Special checkered flag fender badge. Let us know if you have more information.
Information on the Canadian 1965-68 Player's Mustang
A viewer just sent us photos and newspaper advertisements from 1965 and 1966 for the Blue and White Mustang Player's special edition hardtop. These Mustangs were painted blue and white to match the Player's cigarette package. All models were hardtops, had this special blue and white exterior paint, 200ci 6-cylinder engine, full wheel covers, and an AM radio. The promotion was run as Mustang-A-Week contests in many Providences in Canada between 1965 and 1968.
See some of the Players Special Edition Mustang winners we've found.
The 1967 Mustang Blazer Limited Edition Hardtop
We found many newspaper advertisements for the newly discovered 1967 Mustang Blazer Limited Edition Mustang which featured Lime Gold exterior paint, black vinyl top, personalized interior nameplate, and Blazer exterior nameplate. This was a local limited edition Mustang for the Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Maryland area from mid November to mid December of 1966. We think the Blazer exterior nameplate was placed just below the Mustang lettering just behind the front wheels as shown in this image we modified. Take a look at the newspaper advertisements and let us know if you have any more information.
Uncovering the 1968 Dixie Special Mustang
We think we just found a new limited edition Mustang! Its called the Dixie Special Mustang which was available only the Mississippi and Louisiana area in the spring of 1968, and featured special paint, a Dixie Special license plate, and a Dixie Special emblem. Take a look for yourself at the newspaper advertisements we found. We also think someone found one!

Paint Color Code Cross-Reference Database
What is the difference between a Ford M, WT, or MX code paint? How about a list of all of them with color samples, color names, Ditzler PPG codes, Dupont codes, and links to photos of actual cars if they are in our photo database. Did Ford ever use a GM paint on a Mustang?
These questions and more can be answered with our Paint Color Code Cross-Reference Database. We've also added other Manufacturers cars, trucks, and heavy equipment. This database is being set up to understand the historical usage of colors on special order Mustangs including the 1968-69 Rainbow of Colors, 1968 Color of the Month promotions, as well as understanding special usage in all Mustang colors.
Did you know that in 1967 you could order a Mustang in one of over 40 colors? Or that in 1968 over 26 special order paints were offered free as part of promotional packages? Or that there are hundreds of special order paints available from Ford every year?
We also have many of the GM special order WE-code paints as well as the Chrysler special order DT-code paints.

1968 Color of the Month Promotion
Color of the Month
Thanks to Mal Hillier of Melbourne, Australia, for the information on his Black Hills Gold, 1968, January, Color of the Month promotional Mustang. We've added his car to the February Passionate Pink Mustang and April Eastertime Coral Mustang. We are still looking for a March Emerald Green Mustang, but we have recently discovered that Emerald Green was a Ford Special Order Fleet Paint until at least 1988. If you have any information on this promotion, please contact us.
Update: 1968 Color of the Month promotional Black Hills Gold shares the same paint codes with 1968 Rainbow of Colors promotional Spanish Gold. The date and assembly codes on Mal's 1968 Mustang hardtop more closely matches the 1968 Rainbow of Colors promotion, although it is a great example of what the January Color of the Month gold looked like.
Red, White, and Blue are the three basic paint colors offered on each year of Mustang production (1964-2010). Thanks to Chet (owner of a 1993 Mustang GT) who emailed us with the correct answer first. He will receive a MustangAttitude.com window decal set.

1967 Ski Country Special Aspen Red
What exactly does Aspen Red look like? Frank Recupero of Okhurst, California, submitted his rare 1967 Ski Country Special; but is it Aspen Red? MustangAttitude did a little research and found the Dupont paint chip for Ford MX 707587 (DuPont 2721H 93-83001H)). It was used on the 1958 Ford Edsel (but called Ember Red) as well as a custom color for vintage Gibson guitars, but the color appears to match!
