The Ford Mustang first graced us with its presence over 50 years ago. At that time, multiple trim levels weren’t readily available in the way that they are now. Instead, regional dealers created their own personalized Mustang designs. One of those designs used a 1967 Ford Mustang Shelby GT coupe prototype as its starting point and eventually became known as the Ford Mustang California Special. The Mustang California Special quickly became a hit with Mustang lovers all across the country, firmly cementing its spot next to other well-known special edition Mustangs like the Shelby, Boss and Mach 1 Mustangs.
Fast forward to the 2019 model year and the California Special is back again in the form of the 2019 Ford Mustang California Special, which we have right here at Brandon Ford in Tampa, FL. Featuring updated style points, a 5.0-liter V8 engine offering 460 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque, and a comprehensive suite of advanced new safety, technology, comfort and convenience features that includes an all-new B&O PLAY premium audio system, the all-new Ford Mustang California Special is the definitive must-drive model of the 2019 model year.
All-New Ford Mustang California Special Pays Homage to the Past by Modernizing Its Unmistakable Look and Style
At the time of its initial release, the first Ford Mustang California Special was truly a site to behold. Unlike any other Mustang of its time, the Mustang California Special struck an imposing presence on the road thanks to its blacked-out grille, its custom tail lights, and its first-of-its-kind rear fender scoop.
Today, the 2019 Ford Mustang California Special takes those style points and modernizes them to create one of the most visually impressive Mustangs ever built – which is really saying something. The all-new Ford Mustang California Special features a special fading racing strip along its sides, a unique 5.0 side badge, a modern rear fender scoop, a unique California Special trunk lid badge, a blacked-out open grille, the splitter found in the Mustang Performance Pack 1, and California Special 5-spoke painted wheels.
