|Orange Mustangs at MustangAttitude.com|
The first Orange Mustang was introduced the first year of Mustang production in 1964 as an orange shade of red called Poppy Red. Another early orange was also the first glow color: 1966 Emberglo. Most people think about Grabber Orange when they hear orange Mustang which was first introduced on the 1969 Shelby Mustang. There were 52 offerings of Orange paint in 30 of the 58 production years of the Mustang. Follow this link to see photos of all Orange Mustangs on this site.
There were a few orange Mustang special models. These models were exclusively orange or came in special orange paint.
Flower Power Red Orange was a special red orange color WT5185 Ditzler60524 Dupont97249H which was used on several 1968 special painted Shelby Mustangs, the 1968-69 Rainbow of Colors West coast special promotional Mustangs, and the 1969 Limited Edition 600 Mustang. Color match experts call it as a version of Poppy Red or Competition Orange (Ford code M1730, PPG Ditzler 60449) but the PPG paint code is different. Is possible that M1730 was the production paint code of WT5185.
There were many Special Order Orange factory paints for the 1968 Shelby GT500KR as originally assembled and documented by Peter Disher of theCoralSnake.com. Besides Ford special paint code WT5185, there was WT5014 and WT5107. Here are all the codes.
