What Is a Playmate Pink Mustang?Last Updated July 21, 2021 | Andrew Boyle
Mistakenly called "Playboy Pink", Playmate Pink was a special-order option available on first generation coupes and convertibles. These Mustangs are highly prized by collectors as very few real Playmate Pinks have survived through the years. Authenticating a Playmate Pink Mustang can be difficult since there is no official production data available.
In only 22 years, the Ford Special Vehicles Team gave us the Cobra, the F-150 Lightning, and the Ford Raptor. These vehicle legends were designed to represent the pinnacle of performance.
The second generation Mustangs are often forgotten now, but not the Mustang King Cobra. One of the most popular special edition pony cars, this car is highly sought after by collectors. The King Cobra played a key role in rehabilitating the Ford Mustang's image among car enthusiasts. Read more about the Mustang that was the first to feature the 5.0 branding.
Ford and Hertz teamed up in 1966 for a "Rent-a-Racer" promotion with the "H" in Shelby GT-H standing for Hertz. The promotion was revived two more times, once 40 years after the first promotion in 2006 and again in 2016.
More likely to be identified by exterior features that are not present than are present is the Mustang GTS. Favoring power over luxury, the Mustang GTS featured an HO 5.0L pushrod V8 engine, dual exhaust system, and 5-speed manual transmission. In 1996 Ford eliminated the GTS designation and replaced it with the 248A package.
