Surf's up! Ford rolls out Mustang GT "California Special"
In an effort to keep up the buzz surrounding its Mustang as Dodge and Chevy ready their muscle cars for the market, Ford is planning a series of "Feature Cars" for the V8 Mustang. The first off the line is the 2007 Mustang GT "California Special" shown here.
The Mustang GT/California Special is actually a reprise of the original 1968 GT/CS that added Shelby-like styling cues to California-market coupes. Unlike the original, this year's GT/CS will be available nation-wide, in both coupe and convertible versions.
A $1,895 option package, the GT/CS features redesigned front and rear fascias, 18-inch polished wheels, an interior trim package with exclusive "Dove" or "Parchment" themes, and retro-look "California Special" bodyside racing stripes. No extra ponies under the hood, but the engine bay gets a unique trim kit. More pics after the jump!
