There were a few Brown featured Mustang special models. These were either exclusively brown or came in special brown paint.
Bronze 1967 Shelby Mustang
Bronze was the name Shelby used on the GT350 or GT500 for Ford's standard 1967 V-code Burnt Amber paint. Shelby offered 10 of the 1967 Ford paints, 3 were given unique names: Bronze, Dark Blue and Medium Gray.
Sage Bronze 1969 Mustang
Sage Bronze has been listed by several sources including PPG/Ditzler as a special order color for the 1969 Mustang. The color listed is the same as the 1967 Mustang Bronze. If 1969 Mustangs were really painted with this paint; then it would have been under a special order with a blank paint code on the door data tag. This is because Marti's database shows no standard productions Mustangs painted this color in 1969.
Copper Brown 1973 Mustang
Well, Medium Copper was not a special order color in 1973 or on any special model Mustangs, but it is one good looking color. We've included Medium Copper brown in this special list because it looks awesome.
