Player's Mustang Special Edition
The 1965 Player's Mustang special edition was painted dark blue and white to match the Player's cigarette package. The Mustangs were used to promote the cigarette by the John Player and Sons division of Imperial Tobacco Canada. Contests to win them ran in many Canadian Provinces such as Quebec, Manitoba, Ontario, and Alberta from 1965 through 1968. Besides the unique paint they all were hardtops with 200ci 6-cylinder engine, full wheel covers, and an AM radio.
