This weekend at a local event called the Bluebonnet Car Show in Burnet TX, I saw an interesting Mustang. It's a 1967 Bluebonnet Special also known as the Lone Star Limited made for Texas. Pretty unique. Don't recall ever seeing one before. Quite the coincidence of it being at a show of the same name.

I like those wheels and tires, 14s with a lot of sidewall just looks right on a 67.

That paint doesn't look the same color as the other LSLs I've seen photos of. There's a couple of LSL threads here on VMF that get revived every couple of years.
And Bluebonnet is one word as you have spelled it.

Hmm. Maybe they didn't get the color right on a re-spray. I thought that didn't look quite right. Is it possible that all were not that brighter color?

Born and raised in Alabama, been around the world and I love it here, but Texas or Tennessee probably would be where I would go if they ran me off.

I understand that the Bluebonnet paint was not a standard Ford color. It was developed especially for the LSL Mustangs so they would have all been that same color.

FYI - There is one currently for sale in FW. This one looks to have the correct color. However, I think the asking price is a little ambitious for a coupe with some special badging and a drivers side door that isn’t aligned properly. Just, saying...

Take the 5 off of the end of the price and I'd be interested.
That's the blue color I associate with the LSL.

All of the classic Mustangs at Streetside are drastically overpriced, but that one takes it to the next level. Still, it’s a fun place to walk around. It’s kind of like an air conditioned car show where everything is parked too close together.

Yeah, the Doc can put the other glove on and give me a second opinion before I pay that kind of money for that kind of a car.

@dcubedus Thanks for posting the link to the one for sale. Very interesting. Serious coin.


I think the badging looks sort of funny. The pony is running east on the Texas-shaped badge. This works great on the passenger side, because the LSL badge pony and the tri-stripe pony both are running towards the front of the car. But on the driver's side, the tri-stripe pony is running towards the car front, but the LSL badge pony is running towards the back. I think we got us a gin-you-ine stampede here, podnuh!

That paint looks more like Arcadian Blue to me, definitely not Bluebonnet, but many were resprayed over the years. It was surprisingly hard for me to get the actual PPG color code for Bluebonnet during my restoration, so it's plausible that they used a standard 1967 color instead. The badges are missing some shading details too.

Hey tx65coupe, if you happened to get the owner info in one of your pics (maybe from the show entry form on the dash?), PM me please. I have a list of over 20 owners collected and would like to reach out if this isn't a car already on the list. I also have the original LSL badge tooling, so if the VIN checks out, I want to send them some better badges for the car. :)
