1967 Lone Star Limited Mustang

22327950002_large1967 was a big year for limited edition Mustangs. Ford was riding the wave of success coming off the record setting sales of the 1965-1966 Mustang and individual sales districts wanted to keep that momentum going. Like the High Country Special and Ski Country Special created for the Denver sales district, the state of Texas didn't want to be outdone and created their own unique classic Mustang.

So started the Lone Star Limited. A total of 175 '67 Mustang Coupes were sent to the Dallas area Ford dealerships. They had special paint (Bluebonnet Blue to match the state flower), blue standard interiors and brass fender emblems featuring the Mustang running horse inside the shape of Texas. The Lone Star Limiteds also wore all the elements of the Sports Sprint package, including chrome rocker panel molding, wheel covers, chrome air cleaner, louvered turn signal hood (a feature made standard the next year on all 1968 Mustangs) vinyl covered automatic shifter handle and F70-14 wide oval tires.

Identification: Like the High Country Specials and Ski Country Specials, the special paint helps verify these cars today. Look for a 6 digit DSO (615160) on the door data plate. The first 2 digits will be 61 for Dallas DSO and the next 4 digits indicate the special order paint (5160)

    I have two of these cars and have been able to dig up some pretty interesting info. Always looking for more info and other cars. If you know anything, I’d love to hear from you. DSO numbers of 61-5036 and 61-5598 have also been known to be assigned to Lone Star Limiteds (AKA Bluebonnet Specials).

    Hopefully, you will respond to this.

    Hey Virgil, How’s it going? Have you gotten to do any work on the cars? There is always something more I want to do on my BB. I am going to take it to MustangFest in Oct. to Mustang Island. That should be fun!

    I am trying to confirm if we have a bluebonnet or not. The DSO# is 615598 and has the correct hood, wheels and air breather. We bought it was white. The paint code was “C” and nothing come up on that.That’s what got me searching. Any info would be nice.

    Typically the color spot on the door data plate is blank for a special order paint car, but not always. Check out the data plate of this other Lone Star Limited (ie. Blue Bonnet Special) with a “C” listed as the color: http://www.allfordmustangs.com/photopost/showphoto.php/photo/134531

    I have one of these my great grandfather bought brand new with 66k original miles on it. It still has dealer assigned badge (Horne-williams) on car but lonstar limited badges are gone. Would love to talk to other owners as I am thinking of restoring it. DSO code is 615036 with blank color code, 6cyl automatic car with no AC. Email me at orangecrushbjj@gmail.com
