The first Blue Mustang was introduced the first year of Mustang production in 1964.
Five shades of blue were introduced in 1964: Guardsman Blue, Caspian Blue, Skylight Blue, Tropical Turquoise, and Twilight Turquoise. Historically there has been the most number of Blue Mustang colors offered than any other color.
There were 161 offerings of Blue in all 51 production years of the Mustang. Follow this link to see photos of all Blue Mustangs on this site.
There were also two shades of blue-green introduced in 1964: Pagoda Green and Dynasty Green.
Two shades of Blue are available now on the 2014 Mustang: a bright Grabber Blue and a new Deep Impact Blue. Only Deep Impact Blue will be available in the 2015 model year.
Starting in 1969 with the Shelby Mustang and then becoming available on the regular Mustang lineup in 1970, Grabber Blue paint was a popular sport model color. In 1974, the only Grabber paint option offered was a Light Grabber Blue, but this time on the new Mustang II body style. Grabber Blue comes back in 2010.
The first Blue Glow was offered in 1973, one year after other glow paint were offered as an option for extra charge. Silver Blue Glow was made available as the only glow color in 1975 and joined Tan Glow in 1976. The final blue glow color was offered in 1979, as Medium Blue Glow. Early glow paints faded easily in the sun due to the lack of good paint protectants. See our special Glow Paint page for more information on all glow Mustang paints available.
