Since the entire idea of the GT/CS was to boost regional sales, the California Ford dealerships took out several newspaper ads to tout the special model. The tag line of "California Made it Happen!" told local CA buyers that they were getting something special just for them. Dealer ads above include Galpin Ford (still in business!), Cutter Ford and Hensley-Anderson Ford (no longer in business).

It then unfolded to reveal a detailed description of the GT/CS package as well as several of the Mustang options that could be ordered with the car. Size is 8 1/2"x11" when folded up and 17"x22" when completely unfolded.

Above is the 1968 Mustang factory sales brochure available from the dealer. Although not specific to the California Special, it shows factory options, engine choices, standard equipment and specifications for the 1968 Mustang. For the most part these all apply to the GT/CS & HCS cars as well.
