||Special Gold Golden Mustang Limited Edition|
Newspaper advertisement we found for the 1968 Golden Mustang Limited Edition which was available at least in the Illinois/Iowa area. It says, The Golden Mustang comes to Ford Country. America's unmistakable, favorite sports car. Specially painted Golden Mustangs for this area only. Special emblem. Special price. First come, first served. Some of the features shown are hood vent louvers, hood-mounted turn-indicators, floor-mounted stick, bucket seats, special gold paint, wheel covers, full carpet, whitewalls, and special emblem. The emblem is shown (probably in gold and black) with a star and the Golden Mustang Limited Edition lettering. We just got confirmation that these cars exist and have a blank paint code indicating a non-standard production special gold paint and that they were order in the Davenport Iowa area. We found this advertisement in the February 15th edition of the Monticello, Iowa, Express newspaper placed by Freese Motors. We also found the exact ad in the February 19th, 1968 edition of the Cedar Rapids Gazette in Cedar Rapids, Iowa; another by "Service Motor Sales" on 881 Wells Street, Burlington, Iowa; another at Winebrenner-Dreusicke Ford, 1 East College, Iowa City; one from Harold Triem Ford in Postville, Iowa; and one from Grant Williams Ford Sales 'FORDTOWN' on First ave east at 40th street, Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
