Ford revives California Special package for 2019 Mustang

The Ford Mustang GT California Special is back this summer!

The Ford Mustang GT California Special is back this summer!

Ford says the California Special Mustang will be available in a variety of vibrant-looking paint jobs including, crucially, the same Dark Highland Green that comes on the Bullitt. Those cars looked especially trick with the blacked-out grille and side stripe the modern vehicle honours complemented by fog lamps, a Shelby-styled side scoop and spoiler, and custom taillights.

Mustang GT's retuned 5.0-liter V8 engine packs 460 horsepower and 420 lb. -ft. of torque and tops out at 155 miles per hour.* When that torque gets delivered to the pavement via 6-speed manual and available Performance Package, you better hold on, because that's where rev-matching gives Mustang drivers a leg - or a heel and a toe - up.

The original California Special, dubbed the GT/CS, was a dealer-specific package offered only in the coastal state before Ford took it nation-wide in 1968. New five-spoke wheels, blacked-out grille, and a front splitter borrowed from the Performance Pack 1 round out the cosmetic changes.

Most notably, perhaps, is the Cali Special's fading side stripe that flows from the "5.0" badge and into the side scoop. Inside, you'll find more badging on the dashboard, floor mats, and the black Miko suede-trimmed seats. On downshifts, the engine rpm instantly kicks up to smooth out the transition between gears.

Ford is also leveraging its new partnership with B&O Play on the 2019 Mustang.

Power and torque remain the same 460 hp/420 lb-ft as the regular 2018 Ford Mustang GT. Drivers can control the system via the drive mode selector or through the instrument panel.

Lastly, Mustang is adding two new hues to the color chart for 2019: Velocity Blue and Need for Green.

The 2019 Ford Mustang will hit dealerships this summer.
