Orange Featured Mustangs

There were a few orange Mustang special models. These models were exclusively orange or came in special orange paint.

Madagascar Orange 1968-69 Rainbow of Colors Mustang

Not exclusively limited to orange, the Rainbow of colors was a 1968-69 West Coast promotion which allowed new Mustang owners to order a car in one of 13 special factory of colors which represented the colors in the rainbow. Some of these colors were Madagascar Orange, Whipped Cream, Spanish Gold, Dandelion Yellow, Hot Pink, Caribbean Coral, Forest Green, Sierra Blue, and Moss Green.

Special Orange 1968 Shelby GT500KR

Flower Power Red Orange 1968-1969 Rainbow of Colors

Flower Power Red Orange 1969 Limited Edition 600 Mustang

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.

Grabber Orange 1970 Twister Special

Offered only in Grabber Orange, the 1970 Mustang Mach 1 Twister Special was a promotional special model sold exclusively in the Kansas City area.
