Erik from British Columbia is trying to find out more about this Special Order purple painted 1968 Mustang hardtop (and possibly also a Cougar) that was built early 1968 and ordered in BC, Canada (DSO B7, blank paint code). The paint appears to be Ford WT9083
special order purple paint which was used in the Rainbow of Colors - West Coast promotion
but we have found no evidence of this promotion further north than the Salt Lake City area. The paint is over a metallic blue but the purple paint is painted everywhere as usually done by the factory when the trim is all off (we've seen other factory special painted Mustangs with a different color underneath). Erik, who owns this car, has a friend in BC who owns a Cougar with the same paint. Contact us
or Erik if you know of others or have any ideas.
Here is a closer look at that special order purple paint.

Good shot of the special order purple paint on the door.
The paint is everywhere, even under the vinyl roof; but vinyl roofs were a common dealer added option.
A real survivor this Royal Maroon 1968 Mustang Sprint vinyl roof hardtop has 14,976 miles on it. Since 1966, the Sprint options package's main purpose was to offer an engine upgrade to the next largest engine over the popular base model to prevent a shortage. For 1968 this engine was the 195hp (at 4600rpm), 289 cubic inch, 2 barrel V8. Economically priced the Sprint Package from the factory which includes the Argent styled steel wheels, fog lights, and wheel lip moldings.
