GUMTREE MUSTANG CLUB
Who We Are
The Gumtree Mustang Club is a group of Mustang and Blue Oval owners of all years and enthusiasts. There are no officers or dues. Ownership is not even neccessary, just a passion for the cars.
We meet every third Tuesday of the month at random locations throughout the Tupelo, MS area. We get together for car shows, cruise ins, and day/weekend trips.
We invite other owners/enthusiasts to join in with us. Just drop us a message and we will let you know where the next meeting is.
What We Drive
Special Edition Mustangs
1968 Golden Nugget Special
|The 1968 Golden Nugget Special or Golden Nugget Limited Edition Mustang was an Oregon/Seattle promotion which took a 1968 hardtop and offered it in Sunlit Gold (color code Y, usually followed with a "5" to indicate the black hood, and special order number 1111 after the 74 DSO found on the door data tag) although any of the standard or special Mustang colors could be ordered. Also with this package came the louvered hood with black painted inserts, black vinyl top, a black interior, and featured unique golden plaques on the dashboard with the original owner's name engraved. 481 Golden Nugget Limited Edition Mustangs were actually produced of the 525 scheduled to be offered through the promotion.|
1968 Mustang Challenger Special
|The Mustang Challenger Special was a Mississippi, dealer modified Seafoam Green hardtops 289ci V8 (4 speed manual) or 302ci V8 (3 speed manual), and Shelby intakes and a special 4118 Holley carburetor. To keep the cars light and fast they had no power options (no power steering, power brakes or A/C). There were about 21 with a 302ci V8 and a few with the 289ci V8. The 302ci, 3-speed, Challenger Special VIN numbers have been isolated to 8F01J193649-70 with DSO of 64 New Orleans where the intakes and carburetors were changed out. Similar models were offered by other dealers across the nation but promoted differently.|
