Greenlight Collectibles has significantly ramped up its catalog of Blue Oval diecast models in recent months, particularly in the pony car realm. There, the company is set to release toy versions of the all-new S650 generation 2024 Ford Mustang, as well as The Drive Home to the Mustang Stampede Series 1 collection, which consists of diecast versions of a 1965 Ford Mustang, a 1976 Mustang Cobra II, a 1980 Cobra, a 1992 LX 5.0 coupe, a 2010 Shelby GT500, and a 2021 Mach 1. Greenlight also revealed a diecast version of the famous 1967 Ford Mustang “She Country Special” back in 2021, and now, that particular model has made it to the company’s catalog, too.
The She Mustang was available in the pastel colors of Limelite Green, Bermuda Sand, Evening Orchid, and Autumn Smoke.

A 1:18 scale diecast model of the 1967 Ford Mustang “She Country Special” has been added to the Greenlight Collectibles catalog, giving pony car fans yet another way to expand their collections. The brainchild of Ann Goodro, owner of Goodro Ford in Denver, Colorado, the She Country Special was designed to appeal to professional female customers, and has since become a rather elusive and valuable machine.
Goodro became one of the only women to own and operate an automotive dealership in the 1960s when her husband, Bill, passed away in 1967. Goodro was determined to succeed in spite of the odds, and the She Country Special was one of the ways she intended to do so. The 1967 Mustang She Country Special was available in a few unique colors, including Evening Orchid – the color present on this diecast – as well as Autumn Smoke, Bermuda Sand, and Limelite Green. Each of these special edition pony cars also came with an orchid corsage and an interior plaque. In total, just 48 She Country Special Mustangs were produced in coupe and convertible body styles, 12 of which were finished in Evening Orchard.
In addition to building and selling these special Mustangs, Goodro also created a special waiting room at the dealership specifically for women that featured nicer decor from a local furniture store. Ultimately, these changes worked, as Goodro Ford’s sales rose 12 percent after Ann took over. Now, her story will rise to the forefront once again thanks to this cool little collectible.
