Check it out. This is a Sierra Blue 1968 Mustang GT Rainbow Of Colors Edition fastback. It's owned by Marc from Yorba Linda, California. This is our featured Attitude Of The Week
starting October 11, 2015. The car was purchased new by his Father at a dealership in Santa Ana, California. It has the DSO/Special Order number of 71-0783. Marc tells us, "My Dad loved cars and took care of them. It had about 138,000 miles on it when he decided to do a minor restore. At one point, my Father had re-painted it, beefed up the engine (lighter manifold, racing cam, bigger carburetor, etc.), and re-did the interior. It was supposed to be parchment, but he
instead chose a white interior with blue carpet. I loved the car since I was about five so my Dad had always promised me the car when I was old enough. I remember every time it broke down, he would vent by saying he was just going to sell it. I used to get so upset, but he would always keep it. Unfortunately, the car was stolen from a parking lot in the early eighties. I was probably the most heartbroken of the entire family. Fortunately, the joyriders only wanted the battery and tires so they left it sitting on blocks. The car was recovered later that night. Needless to say, I was filled with joy in hearing the news and my Father was able to keep his
promise by giving it to me when I was sixteen. The car was not in great
shape at all. I spent most of my spare time working on it and most of my money on parts. In 1999, I was able to restore it back to almost original. It should have comfort weave parchment seats, but I was unable to find the material at the time. I removed the California smog equipment, added electronic timing and left the aftermarket aluminum manifold. I also installed a 3" Magnaflow Cat-Back (since I work for Magnaflow). I do still have all of the original parts. I had always tried to determine the paint color. The person who painted it had told me some story of having to get
the paint codes from Detroit, but never offered any detail as to the color.
Since it was a custom order, I was never able to determine exactly what the color is. Thanks to your website, I was able to decode the color as Sierra Blue. So the car has been in the family with one registered owner for the last 47 years and I will give it to my son in the next five years or so (let's hope he decides to keep it too)."
Check out the GT emblem on the fender behind the front wheel. Marc's ROC Mustang is equipped with a 390 V8 engine, C6 automatic transmission, bench
seats, A/C, power brakes, power steering, exterior Decor Group (hood scoops/louvers), GT reflecting C-stripes, GT grille-mounted fog lamps, GT dual chrome exhaust thru rear valance cut-outs, left-hand (driver-side)
remote mirror, AM push button radio, electric clock, fold down rear
seat, and 12-hole wheels with aluminum GT style hub caps.
