Color of the Month: 1968 Ford Mustang

1968 Ford Mustang

This 1968 Mustang may not be a real barn find, but it’s interesting color does make it worth a look. I knew that Ford released multiple special editions of their Pony car over the years to give sales an extra push, but I had never heard of their “color of the month” promotion. Apparently, Ford offered special colors for the first four months of 1968. This unique color was fittingly released in April and called Eastertime Coral. Colors for the previous months included Black Hills Gold in January, Passionate Pink in February, and Emerald Green in March. What a clever marketing gimmick! This particular car was resprayed in 1989 in the original color and still presents itself very well. The car is for sale in Basin, Wyoming and is listed here on craigslist for $22k. So, can anyone dig up more Mustangs belonging to the Color of the Month Club? Thanks goes to Robert R. for the tip!

    Just like our 70 Mach1 it’s just a Coupe with some nice options and a odd color otherwise just a 68 Coupe. Our Mach1 is just another heavily optioned 2 barrel 351 Cleveland Mach1 but was painted a rarely seen Chestnut Metallic but the color doesn’t make it worth anymore.

    This Mustang looks to be in pretty decent condition, but not in that color.

    I don’t care how many were made and what the NADA says, NOT in that color.

      are you just saying you don’t like the color.

    And here I was gonna guess Salmon Pink for the fishing opener! ^o^

    I’d want to see the door tag to verify the DSO order and/or the buck tag on the firewall if present for paint code. Looks like a dearborn built car based on VIN.

      I would be more than happy to send you a picture of the data tag. if you will send me an email address. yes it was a Dearborn car, it was shipped to the Columbus district, actually it was sold from “dick masheter ford” and they are still in business today

    I remember seeing custom colors in the showrooms. Any Ford color could be ordered on your Mustang and the Thunderbird solids were popular. The color code was left blank. https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/classicmustang/info

      Yikes, Passionate Pink makes Eastertime Coral look good!

    I have a 1968 GT that has a vin with Eastertime Coral, trying to decide if I should restore to original back to coral or something else.
