The High Country Special was a promotion that Ford ran from 1966-68.  The
mustangs came in three special colors; timberline green, columbine blue, and
aspen gold.  All came with special emblems that dealerrs were free to mount
where they wanted.  Only 333 were produced for the 1966 model.  They were
only sold in Colorado, Wyoming, and parts of Nebraska.  The following
information came from various web sites, mustang magazines, and my personal

email me at

This car was origonally purchased
on October 22, 1966 at Phil Long
