|1967 Third Birthday Special Mustang|
Third Birthday Special
In 1967, Canada had its own special Mustang commemorating the 3rd birthday of the Mustang. Sometimes called the Third Birthday Treat hardtop it came with louvered hood, white sidewall tires, one of three colors (Candyapple Red, Springtime Yellow, or Thunderbird Diamond Green), wheel lip moldings, knitted black vinyl interior, door edge guards, rocker panel trim, and deluxe wheel covers.

|Silver Third Birthday Special|
This is a series of advertisements we found for a Super Valu Silver Anniversary Mustang sweepstakes which featured 7 silver 1967 Mustangs; and 100, 16 inch scale, electric, model Mustangs. Judging from the advertisement and the 1967 Mustang colors, we believe all 7 Mustangs were silver frost and were hardtops. At the time, Super Valu was mainly in the upper Midwest. This ad was placed by Hood's Super Valu in the January 17th, 1967 edition of the Algona Upper Des Moines newspaper of Algona, Iowa. Who won these Mustang? Check out the last ad in this sequence for the names and locations of all 7 winners.
