I thought for sure at least for the 05-09 body style that to buy a Mustang GT in California that it had to be the California package as it had 4 cats instead of the regular 2.

That is just my understanding though and shoot what do I know I live on the east coast and only know that info as a dealer over here told me that. I take what they say normally with a grain of salt as half of it is them blowing smoke up your butt to make a sell anyways. haha

BUT now you have me really wondering. Maybe we can get some California Mustang owners to provide info on laws and regulations and also maybe even get some California Special owners to chime in and post a pic of their stickers. Would be interesting info to know.
