I'm not really sure how he determined this to be 1 of 27. I'm hoping that I can get Ford or someone to give me some information on the car. Yea, these cars seem to be like trying to find a needle in a haystack. They also were only made in the GT model they do have some with the Boss and I heard there is a Saleen, but not really sure on that. When I was looking for one I wanted one that was not molested and as close to stock as possible. So the one I do have only has the K&N air system and Flowmaster Amercian Thunder exhaust. (have the original air cleaner).That's awesome to have even a 1 of 27 car! Not to mention if its one off! I was surprised to find out how rare this color was AFTER I bought it and that they made fewer of these than the Mystic Cobras
Let me know how you make out.Mine only has 73K but it has quite a bit done to it. DSS block, PI heads and intake, etc. I'm hopefully getting it repainted this winter. I'm surprised someone did all the work to it considering there's not a lot of them. I'm in Dayton Ohio. I'm on a local mustang site down here and there's no one in southern Ohio that I know of. I have a buddy that works at Ford, so I'm going to see if he can dig up any info on mine. You're lucky you found one unmolested... It's hard enough JUST to find the color, alone! Lol
Years ago the yellow mustang registry guy started the tangerine mustang registry for the 96's only. He or someone on his site had the records that broke the cars down, similar to the marti report. I sent him my vin and he broke it down by seats, transmission, and body style. I don't remember any other option mattering. It has been a few years since I have seen the page for my car but my 5spd coupe with black leather interior was one of like 139 out of the 829. Unfortunately the tangerine registry is gone now. I remember reading that the rare interior color was white for the tangerine cars. Not sure if that is true or not. Nice to see another one still around.How did you find all that out? Mine has a 5-speed, with a grey interior. I was TOLD that most of them had black interiors but who knows... There's usually a registry for rarer cars with more information, but I can't seem to find anything.
I think he is right. I believe black is the most common color. Keep in mind there was leather and cloth seat options for black and grey and I believe white was leather only. I have seen primarily black interior here in oregon on the tangerine cars, both cloth and leather. I have seen a couple white interior verts as well. I have not seen a grey in person but have seen one posted on the net years ago. Another few years Marti should get the records for our cars so we should get a better break down then.Ok, he probably had it backwards and grey is the common color with Black being semi-rare. It's still nice to talk to a few people you at least know a little about these cars.just wish there was more info for them.
Do you know if he still has a copy of the data? He had a good start on collecting the info from the 96 cars. Are you going to include the 04 competition orange cars in your registry?Ok, so on a whim I bought the domain name orangemustangregistry.com. Going to be getting it set up and gathering some info on all orange mustangs. Apparently the owner of YMR sold the Orange site to a girl and she let it expire after doing nothing with it. My buddy is good with graphic design and web hosting so hopefully ill at least get it started soon.
I'm still trying to get ahold of him. I might have to create a profile on YMR and see if I can get in contact with him that way. I don't want to step on any toes if he's planning on starting back up soon.Do you know if he still has a copy of the data? He had a good start on collecting the info from the 96 cars.

For some reason when it "updated" the page it logged me out and I just now was able to log back in, lol. Let me know if you have anymore problems with it.Hey just checking in, do you know what happened to the Orangemustang Facebook site? Was working now it says it's down, been like this for the last couple of days.
