4.6 of 5 mustang attitude4.6 of 5 mustang attitude4.6 of 5 mustang attitude4.6 of 5 mustang attitude4.6 of 5 mustang attitude (from page 2 of the 1967 Collection) This is a rare 1967 Mustang Ski Country Special hardtop owned by Frank Recupero from Okhurst, California. Frank says, I found this special ordered Mustang Ski Country Special on cars.com. I had been looking for a decent 289 Mustang for about a year and found this in my back yard the next town over Coarsegold, California. Owned it for one year and 6 months, I got curious and ran the VIN#. It kept coming up special ordered, so I got more curious and ordered a Marti Report. The Marti Report solved the special order, it was something I never knew existed. What's a Ski Country Special? I did some more research and I'm very happy I did. This is 1 of 247 Ski Country Specials produced according to the Marti Report. I did very little mods. I had painted black stripes and new rims and dual exhaust on it. The rest of the car is stock. I also recovered the original badge for this model. I called the original owner up and asked her what was so special about the car; and she said her dad ordered it as a special model and there was some kind of badge that went on the decklid that was never put back on the car after one repaint. The owner asked me if I wanted the badge and I said sure; and now it's on the rear decklid where the dealer installed it in 1967.
4.3 of 5 mustang attitude4.3 of 5 mustang attitude4.3 of 5 mustang attitude4.3 of 5 mustang attitude4.3 of 5 mustang attitude (from page 2 of the 1967 Collection) Front view of an Aspen Red 1967 Mustang Ski Country Special photos with new black stripes and wheels. The VIN number indicates that this car came with the C-code, 200hp (at 4400rpm), 2 barrel, V8 engine. The door data tag reads: 65B hardtop body style, blank color code (but in this case for Aspen Red, Ford MX 707587 (DuPont 2721H 93-83001H)), 6A black decor interior with bucket seats, 26L assembled on the 26th of November 1966, 51 ordered in the Denver area, 0005 special order, A 3.00:1 equa-lock rear axle ratio, W automatic transmission. Further information shows this to be Order Type local promotion, DSO Item # 2238, Dealer # 76A011, Fordland, 11000 W Colfax Ave, Lakewood, CO 80215. We think this car is still in Aspen Red; a color first used on the 1958 Ford Edsel and later used on custom Gibson guitars.

3.9 of 5 mustang attitude3.9 of 5 mustang attitude3.9 of 5 mustang attitude3.9 of 5 mustang attitude3.9 of 5 mustang attitude (from page 2 of the 1967 Collection) The 1967 Mustang Ski Country Special hardtop which featured ski racks, snow tires, equalock rear axle, coffee bar and a Ski Country Special hood medallion. The Ski Country Special was a winter promotion in Colorado which complemented the summer High Country Special. Original options on this car included a black vinyl roof, automatic transmission, limited slip differential (for driving in the snow and ice), 14 x 7.35 inch 4-Ply rated tires (snow tires), white Rayon sidewall tires, wheel covers, rear trunk-top luggage rack (ski rack), power steering, 8 track AM radio, Exterior Decor Group, Interior Decor Group, tinted glass, and a heavy duty battery. Original color selections included Aspen Red, Vail Blue, Winter Park Turquoise, Loveland Green, or Breckenridge Yellow. This car was originally Aspen Red. Frank adds, According to the Marti Report my car was painted orange, I have not found a color chip on the Aspen Red so it's hard to say that this orange is Aspen Red. The Marti Report states special paint and I got in-touch with the owner and they said this was the color they ordered the Ski Country Special in. So we at MustangAttitude will call it Aspen Red until we are proven wrong.
4.3 of 5 mustang attitude4.3 of 5 mustang attitude4.3 of 5 mustang attitude4.3 of 5 mustang attitude4.3 of 5 mustang attitude (from page 2 of the 1967 Collection) Left rear view of a 1967 Aspen Red Ski Country Special Mustang hardtop. You can just make out the Ski Country Special rear deck emblem that Frank re-installed. The deck lid here is missing its luggage rack which was part of the original Ski Country Special. The luggage rack was advertised as a ski rack; but in reality, it may have been too small. Some people, called this rack a coffee bar since it had a trailing edge bar which raised up about 2 inches; just enough to keep your coffee cup from falling off the deck lid as you adjusted your bindings.
(from page 2 of the 1967 Collection) Here is a close-up of the Ford Ski Country Special metal rear deck emblem. The recessed part of this emblem has been painted black. The Mustang Ski Country Special was available for the hardtop or fastback. In 1967, the Ski Country Special options package could be also ordered on the Ford Galaxie or Fairlane.
(from page 2 of the 1967 Collection) Well, after searching http://www.performancecoatings.dupont.com for Aspen Red, Ford MX 707587 (DuPont 2721H 93-83001H)), MustangAttitude found the color in the 1958 Edsel Color Bulletin No. 1. Now they (probably Edsel) calls it Ember Red, but its the same numbers and the color chip looks like this car as well as Edsels found on the net in Ember Red. So mystery solved, we now know what Aspen Red looks like. Frank, you indeed have a rare car. MORE INFO: we did some research on Edsel Ember Red and found some nice sites out there talking about Ember Red from the 1958 Edsel being a custom color for vintage Gibson guitars.

(from page 2 of the 1967 Collection) Here is a shot of it's original C-code 289ci 2V V8 engine.
(from page 2 of the 1967 Collection) The interior is black. It has metal inserts on the door panel.

(from page 9 of the 1967 Collection) Jason of Michigan brought this special Mustang in the rough back from Nebraska. He saw it a few years ago showing its unusual orange original paint here and there. Jason ran the VIN and door data code (65A blank 2A 16C 511913 0 W) and found it to be originally painted Aspen Red, ordered in the Denver area, and has filled in truck lid holes from a luggage rack. This all matches the local Denver special order Ski Country Special promotional package which was the winter version of High Country Special. This promotion featured 5 special order paints (Aspen Red being one of them), ski racks (trunk lid luggage rack), snow tires, and a Ski Country Special rear deck plaque. Jason hasn't found the original plaque but he's been able to confirm from other owners that this is a Ski Country Special. See the other photos in this set for glimpses of the original color and features.
(from page 9 of the 1967 Collection) Here is the front view with the grille, hood, and headlamps off. You can see the original paint behind the headlamps. Its very orange, but the Aspen Red of the Ski Country Special was an orange red. Hope the C-code, 289ci, 2-barrel, V8 is still in there.
(from page 9 of the 1967 Collection) The original color is very obvious inside the trunk.
(from page 10 of the 1967 Collection) Here is a rear view showing the black and gray of the repaint. Jason found evidence of filled in luggage mount holes in the underside of the trunk lid. The previous owner of another Ski Country Special says his Ski Country Special badge was on the trunk lid also.
(from page 10 of the 1967 Collection) Close-up of the head lamp and some of the original Aspen Red orange paint.
(from page 10 of the 1967 Collection) The orange red paint is also visible in the vent holes of the optional louvered hood where the black paint is pealing.
