Paint Code, Blue Bonnet?

Have a guy looking at purchasing a 67 with this code, wants to know if the color is possibly a Blue Bonnet. I know there was some interest in the B.B. here so I thought I'd see what you guys thought.

Re:Paint Code, Blue Bonnet?

Was the Blue Bonnet offered in '67 or was it only in '68?

Re:Paint Code, Blue Bonnet?

According to the April 05 Mustang Monthly the Blue Bonnet Special was only offered in 1967 and had a DSO of 61 followed by the digits 5160. The color code is left blank.
Hope this helps.

Re:Paint Code, Blue Bonnet?

It looks like we have an even bigger mystery now. If the Blue Bonnet code is 61 5160 then what does the 61 5036 represent?

Re:Paint Code, Blue Bonnet?

Here is what Virgil wrote me back.

P.S. I put in a good word for Jason that if he wants to sell the car if it turns out to be a Bluebonnet let me know as I know someone interested in purchasing a Bluebonnet.

Cory

Yeah, I read that article. That's where I found the "Bluebonnet Special" in the first place. The car I am talking about was (I'm pretty sure) painted that same color blue originally. It was also for sure a special order car. It is a 1967, has a DSO of 61 but is followed by 5036 instead of 5160. I got a VIN report from Marti Auto Works and the option list is very similar to the car featured in the Mustang Monthly article, (Sports Sprint, F70-14 Wide Oval Tires, 3- speed transmission, Rocker Panel Moulding, AM Radio, Tinted Glass, Wheel Covers). I called Vic Lea (one of the guys mentioned in the
article) and he said the car could very well be a bluebonnet special and he would try to determine without a doubt with a source he has in Detroit. At any rate, if it turns out to be a bluebonnet special, I plan to restore it to like new status, if not, I plan to make a resto-mod out of it. We'll see. Thanks for your help!

Lone Star Limited

Hey guys,
I own a Lone Star Limited "blue bonnet special", one of VERY few left. It has a DSO of 615160. However, my car has the letter "C" under paint. If you check the paint codes for 1967, there is no "C" available. Interesting bit of information. Any questions please contact me at turquoisetexan@yahoo.com
Thanks and Merry Christmas!

Curtis

Jason, are you still upside down on the other side of the world?

My wife and I are trying to figure out where to go for our 15th next year and were thinking about that area. We may need to meet up at one of the local car haunts one of these weekends and talk about it.

My book shows "C" as being used for "Dark Grey Metallic" on T-Birds in '67. Probably doesn't have any bearing, but offered for information anyway.
