Teri Garcia owns this Dusk Rose pink, 1967, 200 Sprint, Mustang hardtop which was our Attitude Of The Week for the week starting January 31st, 2010. Teri tells us more: My Mom and Dad bought me my 1967 Mustang in 1995 (my senior year of high school). When I got my Mustang it was Red. It is a 6-cylinder 200 sport sprint with a 3 speed on the floor. We did not know what we had until my brother went to put a new stereo in the car and saw the floor boards were pink. We ran the codes and sure enough it was originally Dusk Rose. My brother really had to twist my arm to restore it back to the original color. I always wanted a red Mustang. In 2002, I finally had it restore back to it's original color. It was done just in time for my wedding. In 2007 we had the engine rebuilt, engine compartment redone, and a good bit of the suspension redone. Restoring this Mustang back to the original color was the best thing we ever did. People are so curious about it. We have so much fun meeting and talking to people about our Mustang. We have won many awards. We have two 2nd place awards and one 3rd place from the All Ford Nationals in Carlisle, Pennsylvania.

Her husband, Al, tells us more, "Bought it from a friend for my wife and did a complete resto. The only original parts are the hood. Painted Playboy Pink because when I met my wife she had been in a hair style competition and had Pink hair, and she wanted something other than red. Runs good. She has ball driving it and gets lots of looks. We are a Ford family - my son has a 69 Mach 1, 428 4-speed 2 4-bbls. I have 50 Ford lead sled."

Here is a car you will not see often. Its an Eastertime Coral 1968 April Color of the Month promotional Sprint Mustang hardtop owned by John of Michigan and was our featured Attitude Of The Week for July 13th, 2008. The Color of the Month was a promotion for the first four months of 1968 where special colors were connected to main holidays for special sales: Black Hills Gold paint for the New Year celebration in January, Passionate Pink for Valentine's day in February, Emerald Green for St. Patrick's day in March, and in this case Eastertime Coral for Easter in April. Imagine an Easter Collection of Colors sale showing Eastertime Coral Mustang next to a Seafoam Green, Meadowlark Yellow, and Diamond Blue 1968 standard factory color Mustangs; and a Passionate Pink Mustang left over from the Valentine's day, February color of the month. The Ford color number for Eastertime Coral was WT9012 (6779DH Dupont, 71617 Ditzler) and was also used for the Rainbow of Colors 1968-69 West coast promotion but called Caribbean Coral. See our 1968 data explorer and the 1968 Special Models page for more information on both of these promotions. We also have a larger 1024x768 pixel wallpaper of this car.

This amazing, special ordered, 1968, Sprint optioned, Mustang hardtop was purchased in 1968 and is still owned by Orville and Ann Werner of Colorado. It is also our Attitude Of The Week for the week starting June 17th, 2012. Orville tell us that he bought the 1968 Mustang off the showroom in Colorado which came with the Sprint package, 302ci V8 engine, and this amazing special paint. Since then Orville has seen other coral 1968 Mustangs in the area. "Samoan Coral" is the name of the paint as Orville recalls, and was part of the Color of the Month promotion in Colorado. The door data tag has a blank color code indicating that it the exterior color was a special order, the order district is 51 for Denver, the special order number is 3000, and the build date is 15D for April 15th. The car has been repainted but it is very close to the original color.

Check it out! It appears to be an Eastertime Coral 1968 Mustang "Color Of the Month" special edition hardtop. The Mustang still has it's original 289ci V8 engine and an automatic transmission. Reg Henderson just picked it up on March 27th. Reg is asking for help identifying the original owner. Here is what he knows, "This car started out in Dearborn shipped to 'DICK MASHETER FORD' in Columbus, Ohio. I don't know who the first buyer was, but I do know that he sold the car in 1989 to John N. White in Columbus Ohio, and he sold the car to Edward J. Peksa of Greensburg Pennsylvania in 1998, it was then sold to Kenneth Lipyance of Churchill Pennsylvania. Then it was purchased by Christian Nuss of Alliance, Nebraska in 2005. It has quite an extensive maintenance record for this car. What I would really like to find is the original owner." This Mustang has a DS0-Special Order Number of 32-2328. We are looking for anyone else with a Mustang from this batch.

Under this black paint is Caribbean Coral paint. It's a 'Rainbow of Colors' Special edition 1968 Mustang. It's owned by Brandon Salisbury. Brandon is 16 and is planning to restore the car with his Father. The Marti report states that it is a Special Paint Coral, Ford #WT9012. It was built in San Jose (8R) on 3/8/68 and ordered through the Salt Lake City DSO (73) with special order# 3061. It was sold through Gooding Ford in Gooding, Idaho. This paint was also offered on the 'Color of the Month' special edition Mustangs. This Coral Mustang was built about a month too early to be considered a 'Color of the Month' special edition. The Coral paint was an April color. The special order number on this Mustang is close to 3059 which we know is part of the 'Rainbow of Colors' promotion. We believe most of the 'Color of the Month' cars came from the Metuchen New Jersey factory, and we have never found an advertisement for the 'Color of the Month' promotion from the Salt Lake City area.
