When Ford introduced the Ford Mustang in 1964 and instant love affair with the American Pony Car was born. The mustang was smaller, lighter, and more nimble that any American manufacturer had produced thus far. This coupled with its fresh design, the Ford Mustang became a must have among the American public. 1967 marked a pivotal year for the Mustang, as this was the first time since the first generation made its debut that vast changes were made to the Mustang. Making it larger and having many more engine options than before. It also eliminated some things that did not make sense. 1968 was just the same and by this point, Ford had found the next best thing and had very little for competition comparatively. In mid-February 1968, the California Ford Dealers (Ford Dealer Advertising Fund) began to market a factory-built, limited-edition Mustang, called the GT/CS, or "California Special". The hope was for a targeted production run of 5,000; however, only 4118 were made, including 251 units that were remarketed in Denver, Colorado, as "High Country Special '68". Production ran for only 5.5 months from mid-February 1968 to early August 1968.
