The effortlessly-cool Bullitt Mustang isn't the only special-edition pony vehicle being unleashed by Ford Motor Company for 2019; today, the automaker announced that the Ford Mustang GT California Special is coming back, reviving a nameplate that's excited collectors and Mustang die-hards for fifty years.
The original version, pictured below, featured a blacked-out grille, fog lamps and self-proclaimed "over-the-top" racing stripes.
For 2019, Ford brings back the Cali Special as part of an appearance package for the Ford Mustang GT.
When Mustang first hit the streets in 1964, owners clubs sprang up around the country, with many regional dealers creating their own personalized pony vehicle designs.
Customers who opt for the special edition vehicle get a blacked-out grille, exclusive wheels, a lower splitter and a side body stripe.

5 - The 2019 GT/CS gets unique wheels with a machined face and painted pockets. Inside, you'll find more badging on the dashboard, floor mats, and the black Miko suede-trimmed seats. Now, the GT's six-speed manual transmission offers automatic rev-matching technology that predicts shifts and quickly matches engine rpms accordingly.
The entire Mustang range will now come optional with a Bang & Olufsen 1,000-watt 12-speaker stereo system; and a new rev-matching feature in 5.0-litre manual-equipped cars to simulate heel-and-toe upshifts and smooth out downshifts.
Ford is also leveraging its new partnership with B&O Play on the 2019 Mustang. Like 2018, the 5.0-liter cars will make 460 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque. Drivers can control the system via the drive mode selector or through the instrument panel. Dark Highland Green is another new color but is available only on the Bullitt.
The 2019 Ford Mustang will hit dealerships this summer.
