This Dynasty Green 1965 Mustang hardtop is owned by Hayley M. of New York and was our Attitude Of The Week for November 15, 2009. Hayley says, I just purchased from a couple who bought it in Utah 10 years ago. When they got it, several beehives were present in the headlights and engine compartment. They went a little crazy with the color choices under the hood, but retained the original color. All I know about it is what the previous owner knew, which wasn't all that much. While it's not perfect, it's a classic that deserves to be well taken care of, and I intend to do so for many years to come. My only addition has been the pirate flag on the antenna. |

Color has been verified by Window Sticker showing Special Paint, No Charge, family members of Ellsworth Harrold Ford, The original owner, and additional information obtained by the Marty Report Company in Arizona, and by the color delete on the VIN. I purchased the car from the second owner in November 2002. It was a father daughter project. This amazing car is our Attitude Of The Week starting June 30, 2019.

This awesome Clearwater Aqua 1967 Mustang hardtop is owned by Corey Fong of San Jose, California. This was our Attitude Of The Week for September 21st, 2008. Corey writes: I just pulled the car out after ten years of storage. My mom was the original owner, who bought it when she was in her 20s. Lots of original parts still on it (glass, chrome, California smog parts, wheel covers, etc.). This was a daily driver for a number of years but remains in pretty good condition.

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.

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. |

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.
