1968 GT/CS & HCS
1966-1968 HCS History & DocumenationA special thanks goes out to Mark Hartman for allowing this site to display the collection of High Country Special documentation he's managed to dig up. Hours upon hours were spent at the University of Wyoming microfilm machine researching vintage copies of the Rocky Mountain News. He was able to piece together some great news articles and dealer advertisements from the local Denver market.
Mark bought his first 1968 HCS in 1982 in Denver. It had a 289 engine and some non-factory items including a 4-spd toploader, 4 barrel carb, dual exhaust and overhead/floor consoles.
So thanks to Mark for putting this info on the web (way back in 1995) and for letting it be housed here on CaliforniaSpecial.com.
1968 High Country Special
1967 High Country Special
There was a big publicity and sales promotion event that occured in July of 1967. An entire trainload of Mustangs were shipped to Denver at that time and some or possibly all of the High Country Specials built that year were on board.
Another train load of Mustangs also were shipped that month. This time the train was filmed for use in a television commercial and had hundreds of Mustangs on board along with one Brinks armored truck, supposedly filled with a million dollars. These stories appeared in the railroad magazine put out by Western Pacific. It was called "Mileposts". Here is page one of that story and here is page two.

This promotion was not limited to the Mustang and was available on the Galaxie and Fairlane models as well.
