Back in the 60s and 70s, certain parts of the United States got their own special editions of the Ford Mustang. Colorado had the High Country, Texas had the Blue Bonnets, California of course had the California Special and in 1970, Kansas City had the Twister. Two of these ultra-rare cars recently sold at auction for a huge chunk of change.
Only 96 were made, all as part of an agreement with American Raceways Inc. They were all Grabber Orange and were based on the Mach 1.
All the cars were originally suppose to have Cobra Jet 428 engine but there was a shortage of the engine so only 48 were built that way. The others have Cleveland 351 V8s. All the cars had every option box ticked from the factory.
The two cars were sold at Mecum's Kansas City auction, earlier this month. The larger engine model sold for $140,000 while its less-valuable Cleveland sibling sold for $130,000. Also sold at the auction was a 2008 Twister Mustang convertible built as a tribute car by R&A Motorsports. The convertible sold for $55,000.
