What Is the Special Paint Edition Mustang?

By the mid-1970s, concerns over spiraling gasoline costs caused many American car buyers to seek more fuel-efficient alternatives to the gas-guzzling, high-performance muscle cars that were so popular in the previous decade. Ford responded to consumer demand by developing the Mustang II, which signified the beginning of the Mustang’s second generation. The Mustang II was a smaller, slimmed-down vehicle with a design based on the subcompact Ford Pinto. Nearly 386,000 units were sold in 1974, the Mustang II’s first model year.

In the middle of the 1975 model year, Ford introduced a Special Paint Edition Mustang that offered a bolder paint scheme than the regular-production Mustangs of the time. The Special Paint Edition Mustang featured a two-tone paint job or a wide stripe, as well as additional enhancements consisting of sport wheels, bumper guards and body side moldings.

The Special Paint Edition Mustang Didn’t Last Long

The Special Paint Edition was a short-lived Mustang version that was only available through the end of the 1975 model year. It was replaced in 1976 by the Stallion, a performance package that offered many of the same features, but included specially designed Stallion decals.
