Anyone heard of a Mustang High Country Special
Hi everyone,

Just wondering if anyone has heard of a Mustang High Country Special or HCS. I know about the California Special that was made in 1968, but was looking for some info on the HCS, and the years that it was made, how many were produced and any options that it had. Any would be much appreciated!

I have heard of these but only ever saw a few pictures, the vast majority of GT's were California Specials I believe. Have a look at the following site

Yes, they were made from 1966-1968. There is not a lot of info and they are VERY, VERY RARE. For 1966 & 1967 the HIGH COUNTRY SPECIAL option was offered in 3 colors on any body style (Unlike 1968). The Color options included; Columbine Blue, Aspen Gold & Timberline Green, and the front fenders were marked with a Brass "shield" emblem.

In 1968 only coupes were used and they also offered the California Special (GT/CS)

The GT/CS & HCS options included;
Fiberglass trunk lid and quarter extensions, '65 Thunderbird tail lights, Pop-off gas cap, Fiberglass side scoops, Chrome quarter panel script (GT/CS only)
Unique body striping, Blacked out front grille, Fog lights, Quarter turn hood locks.
I believe the production is as follows:
1966 Production of the HCS 333
1967 Production of the HCS 416
1968 Production 4118 GT/CS & 251 HCS

It's my understanding that these cars were sold by Ford dealers in the Rocky Mountian Region mainly the Denver area thus the name "High Country Special" They were pre tuned for high altitude driving.
