It's all about style.

Hot on the heels of Ford Mustang Bullitt, Ford is introducing another classic nameplate for the 2019 model year – the California Special. The package takes several cues from the original 1968 special edition, on top of inspiration from more recent variants. Like the last few versions, the 2019 California Special is based on the V8-powered Mustang GT.

The trademark racing stripe that reaches from the 5.0 side badge to the rear fender scoop returns along with the blacked-out open grille. Both were signatures on the original car 50 years ago. Other styling elements include an Ebony Black and Race Red California Special script on the trunk lid along with unique five-spoke painted machined wheels. The car also receives the front splitter offered in the available Performance Pack.

Inside, the California Special cues continue. There are black Miko suede-trimmed seats embossed with the GT/VS logo and contrast red accent stitching. Even the floor mats are custom embroidered with the logo. California Special script badging appears on the dash panel.

The Mustang California Special has always been about the visual upgrades, and Ford has continued that tradition in with the 2019 package. Ford hasn't announced pricing just yet, but the wait won't be too long to drive one. The 2019 Ford Mustang GT California Special will be available this summer for both the coupe and convertible bodies.
