1968 Ford Mustang Rainbow of Colors
Special Order 1968 Ford Mustang Coupe
200ci 6 cylinder
Rare special order Passionate Pink (Hot Pink) color
Special Order Unit: 3062
This car was built in San Jose, CA and ordered through the Salt Lake City sales district under the Special Order Unit 3062. I believe this car was one of the Rainbow of Colors promotion. There were nine special hues that were part of a West Coast push to sell more Mustangs in the spring of 68 and again the following year. All Rainbow of Colors cars were built in San Jose(second character “R” in the VIN). These cars were then delivered to sales districts across the West Coast. I have found information on 2 other Rainbow of Colors 68 Mustangs that have the Special Order Unit #3061(Caribbean Coral), one unit before mine, and #3059(Forest Green), they were also built in San Jose, ordered through Salt Lake and were sold in Idaho. It is unknown the number of cars built with these special order colors as the color code on the door tag is blank on all of them.
The car has been painted green and now white by its previous owners. The original pink paint however is still visible on the floor pans, package tray, along with several other areas.
The body of the car is extremely straight
All bodylines and panels match very well
Panel gaps are very good throughout
Doors close like a bank vault
Front and rear frame rails are very crisp and clean
Hood is really nice, straight, rust free
All glass is original Carlite, except windshield(cracked)
Door glass rolls up and down super easy
Car has typical rust in areas that most Mustangs exhibit:
Driver's toe board, floor behind passenger seat, front torque boxes, tops of inner fenders, quarters, lower fenders
The previous owner tried to stop the rust with fiberglass patches, which makes it look worse than it really is.
I have owned the car since 2005. To my knowledge and the fact of how straight the car is; it has never been in an accident. It has been garaged the entire time I have owned it. It hasn’t been started in 11 yrs, but I put a new fuel pump on it and it starts right up. This car is being sold as a project car and therefore to be safe will need to be trailered because of old tires, brakes, etc. Clear WA state title
I do have new front and rear inner fender aprons, WA collector plates, 2 more slotted mag wheels, 3 more steel wheels, original carpet/insulation, kick panels, export braces, radio, misc parts.
