(from page 9 of the 1968 Collection) Jeffrey Wheeler's recently restored Olive Green 1968 Rainbow of Colors Mustang hardtop is our Attitude Of The Week for the week of July 10, 2011. Jeff found this amazing car with 28K original miles on it in its original special order Olive Green paint and options as part of the West Coast Rainbow of Colors promotion which featured custom colors and upgrades. Jeff writes, I wanted to give you an update and send some new pictures of Maggie Mae. She is on the road and doing great! I entered her in the 2011 PNWMC Mustang II's R a Mustang Too Spring Show n Shine and had a blast sharing her story with others and listening to the comments like 'I didn't know they came in that color' or 'Look at that, it has a bench seat'. Over all I would have to say she was very appreciated by others as she was awarded 2nd place in the '67 - '68 Coupe Class. It was a proud day. Now I am enjoying showing her off and eager for September to arrive and with it the 4 day International Mustang Show in Spokane.

(from page 9 of the 1968 Collection) Here is a nice shot of Jeff's factory specially painted 1968 Mustang with C-stripe and sport wheels. All the Rainbow of Colors promotional Mustangs we have compiled were built in San Jose, ordered in the San Jose or San Francisco area, have a blank paint code, and a special order number. We have more detailed information on the 1968-69 Rainbow of Colors promotional Mustangs.

(from page 9 of the 1968 Collection) Amazing left front view of the Olive Green 1968 Rainbow of Colors Mustang hardtop. The other Olive Green Rainbow of Colors promotional Mustang known to exist is now in the Netherlands. They both have the same special order number and build date.

(from page 10 of the 1968 Collection) The sun really shows off this special order factory color. I like the rocket in the background.

(from page 10 of the 1968 Collection) The special paint really stands out at car shows. Awesome!

(from page 10 of the 1968 Collection) Originally posted July 25, 2010. This is one of two known Olive Green 1968 Rainbow of Colors promotional Mustangs; and besides the unique special order color, it is nearly all original. It is owned by Jeff from Oregon and was our Attitude Of The Week for the week starting July 25, 2010. Jeff bought this car thinking it had 133,000 miles, but during restoration, discovered it only had 33,000. The Rainbow of Colors was a 1968 and 1969 sales promotion in the San Jose - Los Angles area which offered new Mustang owners one of thirteen special order paints and sport upgrade options. This Olive Green is one of those 13 colors. During the restoration process Jeff has tried to keep as much of the original paint as possible. He still has the white side stripes to put back on.

(from page 10 of the 1968 Collection) Here is Jeff's, Olive Green, 1968, Rainbow of Colors promotional Mustang at the 2010 Mustang Round-up car show in Bellevue, Washington. About 1000 Mustangs showed up to this car show. I spent the whole day at the show looking at cars and thought Jeff's Mustang was the best. It sure did attract a lot of interest. This photo also fender that Jeff had to replace and repaint. The color match Jeff did is amazing. Jeff says that the American flag in the grille is in the same spot as when the first owner used it in Veteran's Day parades with magnetic white Generals stars on the doors and hood.

(from page 10 of the 1968 Collection) Here is a before restoration view of Jeff's Mustang in its original WT7105 olive green paint which has all the numbers to make it a 1968 Rainbow of Colors west coast promotional Mustang. Jeff writes: It is still all original, despite some front end damage due to a previous owner trying to use it to move a guard rail... It is definitely a Military Olive Drab Green color. I even have pictures of the previous owner having driven it in a Veteran's Day parade with magnetic white Generals stars on the doors and hood for a classic military look.

Jeff wrote this just before restoration began: I just wanted to update you guys on the progress of my Mustang. I currently have it in a paint and body shop being repaired which has led to some very exciting information. The guy doing the work had originally said he could fix all the original sheet metal, which was what I wanted to do to preserve the car in it's originality. Well, last week, he called me up and said unfortunately, he wouldn't be able to repair the driver's side fender due to some stretched metal. In an effort to keep the car original, I took the fender to a Mustang professional restoration expert for a second opinion. He and his coworker examined it and initially thought it had been nicely restored at one point, and I made the comment that I didn't believe it had ever been restored and that the entire car looked to be in the same condition. They began to take a closer look and realized that it in fact was all factory original and then came the question, " How many miles did you say were on this car?" and I replied with, " I think it's somewhere around 128,000." Then one of the guys pointed out to me the wear on the front edge of the headlight bucket and that there was no way possible that this is a 100,000 mile car. He explained his logic and what wear is typical given various miles. He said the wear on this fender is more indicative of around 40,000 miles. I called my paint and body guy to explain the new found opinions and information. He then proceed to take a closer look at the car this morning and all the typical wear spots. He called me in a very excited tone and said "This is a 33,000 original mile car." He checked on brake and gas pedal wear, carpet wear, and so on and said none of it had been restored and it was all original. After finally calming down a bit and having called several friends, called back the Mustang experts and told them. The owner said in his history of restoring Mustangs and going to shows, that this makes the 3rd lowest original mileage Mustang he has ever seen in the classics. Talk about a find!!! Now I have some serious work cut out to document as much as possible with it. Luckily for me I have almost a whole year to prepare for the 30th annual Mustang Round Up in Bellevue, WA. I am so pumped up, this is absolutely AWESOME! Thanks, Jeff

Those pictures from the Mustang Round Up are included in this set.

(from page 10 of the 1968 Collection) This Olive Green factory special paint, 1968, Rainbow Of Colors promotional Mustang hardtop is owned by Jeffrey Wheeler of Oregon and is our Attitude Of The Month for the month of September 2012. Jeff restored the car which has mostly original paint and about 30K original miles on it. I've had the privileged of seeing the car in person, its amazing.

(from page 13 of the 1968 Collection) mustang This double unique, special model, Mustang was our featured Attitude of the Week for the week of December 13th, 2009. Robbie Tromp from the Netherlands has restored this Olive Green 1968 Rainbow of Colors promotional Mustang which is also a Branded Special. This olive green is one of 13 special colors which a new Mustang owner could order along with several upgrades in the west coast Rainbow of Colors promotion. Also during this time dealers could add a Branded Special emblem to further promote a car. Amazingly this car is both! This was the first Olive Green Rainbow of Colors promotional Mustang that found us. A few months ago, Wolfgang Kohrn of ponysite.de, contacted us about finding a unique originally painted, olive green, 1968, Mustang in the Netherlands which had all the options and special order data to indicate that it was the first car found of this unique color. This is that car which is also featured on Wolfgang's site. So far we've only found 9 names of the 13 colors of the promotion. This green was not one of them, so we've been temporarily calling it Olive Green. If you know the official color name, let us know. About the same time, Jeff from Oregon, emailed us on his newest purchase of an olive green 1968 Mustang which turns out to be a sister car to Robbie's because the share the same DSO order area, special order number, and therefore ordered by the same dealer which was, Lou Gerard Motors, in Redding, California. Look at the other photos of this car, Robbie has much more information.

(from page 13 of the 1968 Collection) Here is an excellent photo of Robbie's Olive Green 1968 Branded Rainbow of Colors promotional Mustang in the Netherlands' countryside. Robbie writes, The Mustang was found in San Jose, California, where it had been underneath a cloth for a long time, in a driveway, in a suburb area. It had no license plate, so details are minimal. It had torn white vinyl, chrome moldings and golden striping, and some holes on both C-sides where the 'Branded' emblems had been. These were the only original missing things. For the rest: it was totally original, even the safety directions on the steering wheel and in the trunk where there. It was bought and shipped to the Netherlands early 2005. I bought the Mustang late 2005 and that was the start of the process. The Mustang was restored and left in the original state, I had replica emblems made (from some pictures), but now I have an original one, so I will be able to finish up the Mustang with 'original replicas'. I used the Mustang for my wedding in 2006, special cars must be used for special occasions. Until that time, because of the timeline of production (February '68) and sale in August '68, we thought the Mustang was a St. Patrick's Day special... boy o boy, we where wrong... Wolfgang was the one who started digging in the right direction and everything fits, watertight proof, it couldn't be better. A Rainbow Mustang and a Branded Special, all in one... Who could ask for more?

(from page 13 of the 1968 Collection) Robbie's research has shown that this car was originally ordered with automatic transmission, electric clock (driver side dash center), center console, deluxe steering wheel, power disc brakes, power steering, tilt steering, air conditioning, AM radio, color matched deluxe seat belts, tinted glass, remote control left hand mirror, deluxe wheel covers, 7.35 x 14-4 ply rated white sidewall tires. Its possible that the vinyl roof and Branded special pony emblem was added by the dealer.

(from page 14 of the 1968 Collection) Here is a great photo of Robbie's, Olive Green, 1968, Branded, Rainbow of Colors promotional Mustang before restoration. He found it in San Jose, under a cloth in a driveway before shipping it to the Netherlands.
