Springtime Yellow 1965 Mustang convertible owned by Rick Scott from Clinton, Connecticut. This is our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting October 28, 2019. This Mustang has the in-line 6 engine and an automatic transmission. Rick tells us more, "My Mustang was purchased in 2016 from the daughter of the original owner. The original owner purchased her on July 6, 1965 from a Ford dealership in Amsterdam, NY (Parsons Inc. of Amsterdam). It remained the family car for many years. After all four daughters grew up and moved out of the house, Robert Snyder (original owner) kept her on the road and would drive her from time to time. After Mr. Snyder passed away in March 2015, his youngest daughter decided to pass the car along to someone else. Now, I am just the second owner to enjoy this amazing Mustang. She came to me all original. The engine was over hauled but all original. I replaced the interior, carpeting and convertible top. What is on her is exactly how she was purchased - several production options and dealership options. She also has her original AM radio... and it still works."

This Special Order Cream Yellow Mustang, 289ci V8, hardtop is owned by Michael Gellrich of Germany and was our Attitude Of The Week for January 17, 2010. This is a blank paint code Mustang; meaning, the car was factory painted a non-standard production color. Michael tells us more. We found the car in the Netherlands, there is a dealer who sells only Mustangs 1964-1972. It was a great looking car in our eyes and we bought the pony. At home we saw that there was a missing paint code in the VIN. After sending a chip of paint (found under the rear seat) to Marti Auto, we got the answer that the pony was painted with the special paint called "Cream". We started a search for Mustangs painted in cream, but found no other cars. Then we put our question in the vintage mustang forum and Kevin Marti wrote us that there were 5 cars (with different options) which was ordered by one dealer (Ed Chovanes Ford, San Leandro CA). So we know that we have got a very special car. The Mustang was painted over one time (we hope with the original color) and was a one owner car from San Jose.

Special Order Yellow 1969 Mustang Mach 1 fastback with a 360hp (at 5400rpm), 428 cubic inch, 4 barrel, Super Cobra Jet, V8 engine. This restored car is one of the 10 special paint cars ordered by Russ Davis Ford, Covina California for a special promotion. We are hunting through the newspapers of the time to determine what the promotion was. It could have been a 1969 carry-over of the "Rainbow of Colors" West Coast Promotion, or a "Gas Ronda" special promotion. The Rainbow of Colors promotion offered new Mustang owners one of up to 13 special "Rainbow of Colors." This car has been repainted Ford Special Paint WT6135, which a a little more orange than what we believe is the original Yellow in this group of 13 colors. But WT6135 is a period Ford special order paint! This combined with some newspaper articles of the time says that funny car racer Gas Ronda was heavily sponsored by Russ Davis in 1969 and Gas Ronda drove a modified bright "orangey reddish" Mustang Mach 1. It is possible that the 10 special colored 1969 Mach 1 Mustangs ordered by Russ Davis was for a Gas Ronda promotion. In this case a brighter yellow car may have been necessary, making the current color possibly very close to the original. What did the other 9 Mach 1 Mustangs ordered by Russ Davis look like? well here is one.
