The first production Pink Mustang was introduced in 1967 in two shades of special order pink: Dusk Rose and Playboy Pink. There were 10 offerings of Pink paint in 5 of the 52 production years of the Mustang. Follow this link to see photos of all Pink Mustangs on this site.

Most agree that the first special order Pink Mustang was the 1964 or 1965 convertible given to the 1964 Playboy playmate of the year. This was followed by groups of special order pink Mustangs in at least 3 shades of pink: a light pink (probably the original 1964/65 playmate Mustang and special order variants), Tussy Lip Stick (5 Tussy Cosmetic contest winner 1967 Mustangs each in one of 3 shades of pink), and Dusk Rose (rumored to be added to the Ford special order color list in at least 1966). The color code on the door data tag will be blank and the two digit DSO will be followed by a 4 digit special order number. The paint color shades/codes are just now being investigated by their owners. There is a lot of confusion out there on what shade of pink was used on each promotion and even which are 1967 Dusk Rose since Ford started putting the code paint code of S on the door data tag for Dusk Rose (production code M0835) mid 1967 which differentiated it from 1967 Playboy pink (special order WT9036). Earlier 1967, and before, pink Mustangs all have blank paint codes; and therefore, the confusion begins.

In 1968, the Color of the Month national promotion featured special colors for the first 4 months of the year. Passionate Pink was offered in February to celebrate Valentine's Day. It was also brought back by some dealers in an Easter Collection of Colors April promotion along with the April Color of the Month, Eastertime Coral, and standard 1968 Mustang pastel colors of Seafoam Green, Meadowlark Yellow, and Diamond Blue. Easterime Coral is a pink shade of red or orange.

Also in 1968 was the Rainbow of Colors West coast promotion which featured about 13 special paints including two pink shades: Hot Pink and Caribbean Coral. Hot Pink shared the same paint as Passionate Pink from the February Color of the Month featured color, while Caribbean Coral shared the same paint as Eastertime Coral from the March Color of the Month featured color. It is interesting to note that 1967 Playboy Pink, 1968 Passionate Pink, and 1968 Hot pink were all the same paint WT9036.

Both the 1972 Playboy Pink special paint and the Playboy Pink Mustang given to Playboy playmate of the year in 1964 have been the lightest shade of pink. Special order pink WT9301 is the lightest shade and was available both years, so we believe they both used WT9301.

Below are samples of all four historical Ford pink paints together. Special order WT9012 is a pinkish orange coral, special order WT9036 is the brightest pink, followed closely by Dusk Rose, then special order WT9301 pink is the lightest.
