Green is back in 2013 with "Gotta Have it Green".
The first Green Mustang was introduced the first year of Mustang production in 1964. Three shades of green were introduced in 1964: two shades of blue-green Pagoda Green and Dynasty Green; and a true green Cascade Green. There were 110 offerings of Green paint in 39 of the 51 production years of the Mustang. Follow this link to see photos of all green Mustangs on this site.
Green is back in 2013 as a bright tri-coat lime green paint called Gotta Have it Green, available as an extra cost option on all models of the 2013 Mustang.
Gotta Have it Green 2013 Mustang
My favorite green is Seafoam Green which was only available for the 1968 Mustang. This amazing light green could have been combined with Meadowlark Yellow, Diamond Blue, Passionate Pink, and Eastertime Coral by dealerships in 1968 to form the Mustang Easter Collection of Colors sales promotion. The only green close to this color is 1967 Diamond Green which we feature below.
Starting in 1969 with the Shelby Mustang and then becoming available on the regular Mustang lineup in 1970 and 1971, Grabber Green paint was a popular sport model color. In 1971, a new Grabber Lime was added, but none of the Grabber Green colors have been used on Mustangs after 1971.
Ivy Glow was one of the first Glow Paint offerings in 1972 as an option for $34 extra. In 1973, Bright Green Glow was added to the Glow Paint lineup along with Ivy Glow, Blue Glow, and Gold Glow; but now at no extra charge. Green Glow didn't return until 1976 as Medium Emerald Glow; a special order color, and hasn't been offered since.
There were several green featured Mustang special models. These models where either exclusively green or came in special green paint.
Loveland Green 1967 Ski Country Special
Loveland Green was one of five special colors for the Denver area 1967 Ski Country Special which featured ski racks, snow tires, equalock rear axle, a heavy duty battery, and a Ski Country Special decklid medallion. The 1967 Ski Country Special was a winter version of the Denver 1967 High Country Special. Other colors for the Ski Country Special included Aspen Red, Vail Blue, Winter Park Turquoise, and Breckenridge Yellow. See our 1967 data explorer to see the all the Ski Country Special colors first compiled by MustangAttitude.com. It is interesting to note Loveland Green was first used on the 1961 Ford Rambler as Valley Green.
Pagoda Green from 1964 was actually brought back as 1967 Ski Country Special Winter Park Turquoise.
Lime Gold 1967 Mustang Blazer Limited Edition Hardtop
Lime Gold was the only color the 1967 Mustang Blazer Limited Edition hardtop came in. The special model included a black vinyl top, personalized interior nameplate, and Blazer exterior nameplate. This was a local limited edition Mustang for the Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Maryland area from mid November to mid December of 1966. We think the Blazer exterior nameplate was placed just below the Mustang lettering just behind the front wheels as shown in this image we modified.
Diamond Green 1967 Special Order Paint Mustang
Diamond Green was a popular special order paint in 1967. Some say that 1967 was the year with the most colors available for a Mustang, possibility more than 40 colors. See our list of all 1967 colors in our 1967 Mustang Data Explorer.
Emerald Green 1968 March Color of the Month Promotional Mustang
Emerald Green was a special green commemorating Saint Patrick's Day for the Color of the Month Mustang Promotion. The Color of the Month was a promotion which offered a specially painted Mustang for each of the first 4 months of 1968. January had a Black Hills Gold Mustang for the new year; February, Passionate Pink for Valentine's Day; and March, Eastertime Coral. See our 1968 data explorer to see the all the Color of the Month special colors first compiled by MustangAttitude.com. Special order Ford green paint WT7819 was used which continued as a special order Ford paint till at least 1987.
Poppy Green, Olive Green, Forest Green, and Moss Green are four shades of green used as part of the 1968-69 Rainbow of Colors West coast promotion. Quite a bit of information is known about Poppy Green (WT7034), Olive Green (Ford WT7105, Ditzler 43827) is believed to be a World War II army color, we think we've just recently found a few Forest Green (WT7126) Mustangs, and there is a Ford Truck Pale Jade paint that matches the Ford WT7080 code.
Groovy Green 1969 Limited Edition 600
Groovy Green was the name given to one of the two special colors of the 1969 Limited Edition 600 Mustang. This custom model was a special spring 1969, promotion in the Philadelphia area. 508 cars were produced for this promotion which was 92 cars short of the 600 planned. The cars were available in either Flower Power Red (Ford special paint code WT5185) or Groovy Green (MX8241928). They came in both hardtop and fastback body styles, hood scoop, pin stripes, and many of the hardtops came with a black vinyl top. Each of the cars received a special Limited Edition 600 decal, which was located under the Mustang emblems on the front fenders.
Deep Emerald Green 1990 Spring Feature 25th Anniversary 7-Up Mustangs
Late in the 1990 model year, a new Deep Emerald Green was introduced on a convertible with white interior. These cars go by many names: Spring Feature car, the 25th Anniversary 7-Up Mustang, or just the 7-Up Mustang because 30 of these were to be given away by the 7-Up Bottling Company as a promotional item. These cars actually started life at the Ford factory as coupes! They were converted to convertibles. The work was done by Car & Concepts in St. Louis, Missouri. The 7-Up contest never materialized but 4103 of these Deep Emerald Green Mustangs were built. 2743 had automatic transmissions and 261 of them were exported out of the country.
Highland Green was an exclusive color for the Bullitt optioned 2001 Mustang which was based on the 1968 fastback driven by Steve McQueen in the detective movie Bullitt. Bullitt modifications included unique side scoops, 17-inch American Racing aluminum wheels, a lowered suspension, modified C-pillars, special quarter panel molding, rocker panel moldings, brushed aluminum fuel cap door, special Bullitt badging, polished-rolled tailpipe, and came in Highland Green and True Blue and Black. The original 1968 modified Mustang used in the movie was Highland Green. The movie's director called for speeds of 75 to 80 mph, but the cars (including the ones containing the cameras) reached speeds of over 110 mph on surface streets. Filming of the chase scene took three weeks, resulting in 9 minutes and 42 seconds of film. During the chase scene, the Charger loses six hubcaps and has different ones missing at different times. The production company was denied permission to film on the Golden Gate Bridge. The Bullitt was also offered in 2008 and 2009, but was also offered in Black.
1968 Highland Green is Ford code M3067 (Ditlzer PPG 43644, Dupont 4869) where 2001 2008 2009 Highland Green is Ford code M6920 (PPG 5488, Dupont F7944). We think both colors are the same.
Highland Green 2008 & 2009 Bullitt GT Coupe
In 2008 and 2009, the Mustang Bullitt coupe came in Highland Green and Black. The new Mustang Bullitt brought back the style of the 1968 Mustang fastback used in the 1968 Steve McQueen movie Bullitt. This special model included modified 18-inch micro machined Euro-flange Bullitt wheels with a satin finish; tri-bar pony wheel caps; dark gray painted calipers; satin finish Bullitt emblems/badging; 3.5 inch stainless steel packed exhaust tips; ram air and other improvements added to the 4.6 liter, 3-valve, single-overhead cam, V8 engine; and special handling.
