2024 Ford Mustang GT California Special Has us Feeling Blue

GT's get blue trim everywhere

  • The Mustang Smurf, sorry, Surf Special

  • Offered on all GT package cars

The Ford Mustang California Special is back. The first (of likely many) special edition of the S650 Mustang is here and it’s loaded with Rave Blue details.

When Ford first launched a California Special way back in 1968, it really was made for California. A run of around 4,000 Mustang GT models commissioned by Ford dealers in the state, it got fiberglass extras from Shelby, inspired by the GT-500 prototype named Little Red.

Since then the badge has returned a handful of times. Each one was a cosmetic upgrade to the standard Mustang GT, and was always available in every state (and Canada). This one is no different.

The 2024 Mustang GT/CS, as it’s badged, has darkened headlight bezels for a meaner look. It will also have Rave Blue paint on the air intakes in the grille, slats instead of honeycomb inside that grille, and blue stripes down the side.

Ford is offering two wheel designs, both 19 inches in diameter. Both get Rave Blue accents, and the optional set comes from the Performance Pack.

In the cabin, there’s more blue. The seats are Ford’s Navy Pier colour and they have Raptor Blue stitching. There are California Special floor mats and a badge on the passenger side.

The package adds $2,595 to the price of a Mustang GT Premium. It’s offered in coupe and convertible body styles, and with the six-speed stick or the 10-speed auto. Order books are open now and the car will make its first public appearance at the LA Auto Show next week.
