3.5 of 5 mustang attitude3.5 of 5 mustang attitude3.5 of 5 mustang attitude3.5 of 5 mustang attitude3.5 of 5 mustang attitude (from page 5 of the 1968 Collection) 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.

All Rainbow of Colors promotional Mustangs were special order built in the San Jose plant, and to this date we have found one's ordered in the Los Angeles, San Jose (also delivering to Honolulu Hawaii), and Salt Lake areas. The promotion offered a Rainbow of Colors such as Madagascar Orange, Whipped Cream, Spanish Gold, Dandelion Yellow, Hot Pink, Caribbean Coral, Forest Green, Sierra Blue, and Moss Green.

5 of 5 mustang attitude5 of 5 mustang attitude5 of 5 mustang attitude5 of 5 mustang attitude5 of 5 mustang attitude Has viewer comments (from page 22 of the 1968 Collection) Karen Rose in Raleigh, North Carolina owns a very rare Madagascar Orange 1968 Mustang. This car was originally ordered by her grandma Frannie in California, who picked out one of the special factory colors advertised in the "Rainbow of Colors" Ford promotion between 1968 and 1969. Karen writes, I still drive this car regularly, but it could use some restoration, most pressingly a new hard top. I've been scouting around for a good body shop in the Raleigh NC area if you know of one. Thank! And you don't even want to see photos of my engine, it's not a pretty sight, but at only 160k, garaged most of her life in California, I'm still able to keep her going replacing part for part as they wear out. She's a good gal at 40. A larger wallpaper view of this car is also available.

(from page 23 of the 1968 Collection) We received this email of a second special orange/red Mustang with DSO 710777. This one is under restoration along with a possible other special order Mustang. The owner writes, I have recently bought a 1968 Mustang and discovered the original color was a unique orange. After searching the VIN I discovered your site. I have DSO 710777. If you look closely at the picture you can see the original color of Madagascar Orange where the drip rails where removed. Also the trunk have never been touched and is the original Madagascar Orange. I am excited to re-store her one day and preserve Mustang history. Yet another twist of fate! I also owned a 66 Mustang for over 10 years and finally began to sand her layers of paint. Well as I began to remove door panels, and look in places I found a Bubble Gum color pink. Long story short, we believe this Mustang to have been originally painted Playmate pink which was only a special order in 66 and not officially offered. So I am honored to have 2 rare painted Mustang and hope to be able to save up to restore them to their original glory!

(from page 51 of the 1968 Collection) Check this one out. It's a Madagascar Orange 1968 Mustang hardtop Rainbow of Colors. It was sent in by Bryant Hatfield from Palmer, Texas. Bryant tells us, "It was owned by my friends father. It was buried in a garage for years. His father had passed away so I have no story on the car. Kinda upsetting, but I had noticed the car had no paint code and I started researching and found your site and one other that showed 1187 as my DSO code which states it was a special order orange." The car came with a 289 V8. It now has a 351w V8 engine.
(from page 51 of the 1968 Collection) We know of two other Madagascar Orange 1968 Rainbow of Colors Mustangs ordered under the 71-1187 order district/DSO. This one appears to have had a vinyl top.
(from page 51 of the 1968 Collection) Looks to be little rust. Or the fenders have been replaced.

3.8 of 5 mustang attitude3.8 of 5 mustang attitude3.8 of 5 mustang attitude3.8 of 5 mustang attitude3.8 of 5 mustang attitude (from page 67 of the 1968 Collection) This is a Madagascar Orange 1968 Rainbow of Colors promotional Mustang with a J-code, 230hp, 302 cubic inch, 4-barrel V8. This car was a special order car from the San Jose, California area. Besides the special order paint it came with automatic transmission, white sidewall tires, center console, power disk brakes, power steering, AM radio, tinted glass, deluxe seat belts, remote left hand mirror, and deluxe wheel covers which included the center red cap to the standard full wheel covers. The vinyl roof may have been a dealer added option. The Rainbow of Colors was an east coast promotion which featured special order paint in a rainbow of colors. I got to see this car in person. Its been repainted but its in very good condition. We also have a sister to this car since it shares the same special order number.
