Donna Michelle’s 1965 Playmate Pink Convertible in Australia
You may all wonder why there are so few updates on my car these past few weeks and months. One reason is money, but the main reason is the amount of work my builder has going on at the moment. A nice Bullitt clone is one, but this beauty is the other.
Here is a great piece of history that’s very close to home, literally. It’s Donna Michelle‘s 1965 ‘Playmate Pink’ convertible Mustang. Some say these are extremely rare and from what I can find out it is!
Some say between 1964 and 1966 a handful of special promotion ‘Playmate Pink’ (also known as Playboy Pink) mustangs we given to certain playmates by Hugh Hefner. Now I’m not too sure how accurate that is but all the information points to something along those lines.
There were also other pink Mustangs one must not get confused with. These other paints were named; Dusk Rose, Passionate Pink and from what I can gather Dusk Rose was a 1967 colour only, used for a limited time of about 6 Months and was special order only and Passionate Pink was a 1968 production option.
So back to this unique car, It can be identified as a genuine Playmate Pink car by the absence of a paint code on the data plate. The plate reads as follows:
Body = 76B
Paint code =
Trim = 66
Date = 30O
DSO = 610006
Axle = 1
The car is 289 4V (A Code) Convertible. It has a Auto Trans C4, 8-3/4 Ford rear axle, Drum brakes with power booster and power steering. The Black “Pony” interior is still present along with the Center Console (with T bar auto shifter) and white convertible power top. The car has all the original panels as well.
The car was given to Donna Michelle in 1965 for being the Playmate of the year in 1964. It was saved from a yard in Texas about 3 years ago and is now in possession of the builder of my car, believe it or not, so like I said, very close to home! In Australia
The car is undergoing a ground up restoration and this week is receiving a fresh new paint job in the original ‘Playmate Pink’. The car is well documented and authentic and once restored will be sold. So if you’re interested contact me and I’ll put you in touch.
I’ll have some more pictures in the coming weeks but these will do for now.
