This rare 1968 Madagascar Orange Mustang hardtop from the west coast Rainbow of Colors promotion is owned by Dale Olson of Rohnert Park, California. It was our Attitude Of The Week for December 28th, 2008. Dale writes, I got this car in 1990 and finished restoring it in 1996.
It was not show room quality, but it was a very nice car. For the entire time I've had it, I was misreading the data plate and didn't know exactly what the car was. Even few years ago I did search on internet of Orange 68 Mustang, and got nothing. Just within the past few weeks I finally
found out the car was a part of the Rainbow Mustang promotion of 68
and 69. I don't have the original engine in it because when I got the
car someone had put a straight six in it. I also had a 67 mustang with
a 289 4v that was usable so I rebuilt it. Also no longer have the C4
automatic for it. I put in the Ford design 4 speed (RUG-E2), but no
modifications other than bolt-ons. The car only has 23,000
miles on it since restoring it, but due to it sitting outside in the
weather, it needs to be completely restored again (except the
engine, transmission, and rear end). We've included some scanned in photos after its first restoration in 1996, hopefully Dale can get us more in the future. Also take a look at our Rainbow of Colors special information page to see what we believe all 13 colors from the Rainbow of Colors promotion looked like along with photos of other Rainbow of Colors cars.

Calypso Coral 1968 Mustang hardtop owned by Michael Williams from Adelaide , South Australia. This is our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting May 11, 2014. Michael tells us, "I bought this car from an importer in 2011 and set about restoring it myself. It was originally a Limegold and Parchment vinyl roof car. Its been repainted in Calypso Coral with a black vinyl roof. The Ivy Gold interior has also bee replaced with a new black interior. I've had every nut and bolt out and know the car intimately now. I managed to track down the previous owner in California, who was very surprised to find the car had made it downunder and he was able to fill in some of its history. It recently attended the Mustang 50th Anniversary Celebrations in Geelong Australia, after driving it halfway across the country and back."

Looks to be little rust. Or the fenders have been replaced.

That's the area around Monroe, Washington, in the background. I live in the area. Vinyl roofs were usually added by the dealer as an upgrade since it was such a popular option. There were many colors and patterns, including a crazy paisley pattern. Luckily this special order Mustang has a standard black one.

Calypso Coral 1969 Mach 1 Mustang fastback owned by Tom Patterson from Poulsbo Washington. This is our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting February 7, 2016. It has the 428-4V Cobra Jet V8 engine and a manual transmission. This was originally a Purple painted Rainbow of Colors promotion Mustang. Tom tells us more, "This Mustang was purchased out of Michigan about a year and half ago. I came with some additional touches making not quite stock. It has a Shelby roll bar installed, 1970 hood locks, and the roof emblems were removed giving it a cleaner look. This car was originally purchased from Russ Davis Ford in Covina, California under the Rainbow of Colors promotion with a color code of WT9106 or Purple."

It looks to be Calypso Coral (a shade of orange) to me. That's if it's a factory color. Doesn't appear to be dented too bad.

Check out the modifications Paul made. Paul says, "Here's another picture from 1979 when I was a corner worker at the road races up at Brainerd International Raceway in central Minnesota."
(from page 19 of the 1970 Collection)
Paul's Mustang was featured in the March 1989 edition of "Fabulous Mustangs and Exotic Fords". The text states, "Even though car enthusiasts can be as different as the vehicles they build and drive, most of them fall into two groups. The build 'em and sell'em group who are always trading cars and working on a new project, and the "I'll keep it forever" crowd who have had the same car for as long as you've known them. Paul belongs to the later category. When Paul was 17 years old, he took the savings from his paper route ($2750) down to the local Ford dealer and ordered a brand new 1970 Mustang Fastback. Eventually the time came to increase performance and Paul knew exactly what he wanted to do. Six years as a corner worker at Brainerd International Raceway had him hooked on road racing, and now he wanted to play too. Wanting a 7000-rpm redline, Paul had a truck block bored 0.010-over, and filled the holes with 10.5:1 TRW pistons. Topping the bores are ported, polished and cc'd 302 heads with 1.94 and 1.60-inch swirl polished valves that are controlled by an Isky cam with a 0.476-inch lift and 290 degrees duration. An Edlebrock F4B dual plane intake distributes fuel from a 780-cfm Holley carb, while a Jacobs electronic ignition, wires and coil fire the plugs. Headman headers clear the leftovers into a pair of Califorina Turbo mufflers. An oil cooler helps the bearings survive long races..." |
