This is an authentic 1968 Limited Edition 'Gold Nugget Special' promotional car for the Pacific Northwest dealerships. One of only 481 actually produced of the scheduled 525 to be offered through the promotion. The Golden Nugget Mustang has a DSO# 741111 on the door data plate, with the 1111 indicating the Special Order Unit as such. It was a promotion that was offered at no additional charge, however it could not be ordered. According to the promotion details and first hand information from an original owner, each Ford Dealership in the Pacific Northwest was to receive one Gold Nugget Special and the first person who came in wanting to by it was the lucky person. It was sold with a custom commemorative dash plaque with the original purchaser's name and a simulated gold nugget affixed. All of the Gold Nugget Mustangs were only available in the Coupe model, with Sunlit Gold exterior paint, hood blackout stripes, and a black vinyl top with either black or nugget gold interior. They were produced with varying combinations of engines, transmissions and other available options. This particular Gold Nugget Mustang has the original 200ci inline 6cyl engine and 3spd manual transmission. It runs and drives excellent and was driven on a 1200 mile road trip earlier this year with no issues. It is currently driven several times a month and never has any issues starting right up. It is virtually a rust free car and besides needing paint it needs little else to be a great driver/show car. The interior is in nearly perfect condition. Here is your chance to get a truely limited production Mustang. There is a Gold Nugget Registry that has been formed and to date less than two dozen have been confirmed to still be in existence with less than a dozen actually registered. The well known California Special had a production run of more than 4100 being built. The Gold Nugget Special was equal to approximately 10% of that total making it a more unique and rare Mustang than the California Special. I am asking 6250.00 and I may consider partial trades. If you're looking for something different and special, this is the Mustang for you. Feel free to email or call any time. Thanks, Jeff
