The first Purple Mustangs was introduced in 1967 as a special order Evening Orchard and a rumored special order Lavender. There were 8 offerings of Purple paint in 5 of the 52 production years of the Mustang. Follow this link to see photos of all Purple Mustangs on this site.


Evening Orchard 1967 She Country Special Mustang


Evening Orchard was one of 4 special order colors available for the 1967 She Country Special which was based on the Ski and High Country Specials and where only available at William Goodro Ford in Denver, Colorado. The color was either Ford production paint M3203-A as seen on Curly and Karens Purple Metallic 67 Mustang below, or the slightly darker shade of Ford special order paint WT9083. The other special order colors were Autumn Smoke, Bermuda Sand, and Limelight Green.




Lavender and Purple Metallic 1967 Territorial Special Promotional Mustang


The 1967 Lavender Territorial special promotional Mustang was rumored to be offered in the Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi, and Louisiana area and called the Twister Special. We know a special Territorial Mustang in Lavender was offered in 1967, we are working on confirming the special promotional name, color name and actual shade. 1967 was the year with the most number of colors offered on a Mustang. This was in part due to each of the Mustang assembly plants (Dearborn MI, San Jose CA, Metuchen NY) having its own special color set and featured territorial Mustangs. The Denver High Country Special and Ski Country Special, the Texas Blue Bonnet Special, and this car are examples. The photograph shown above is Curly and Karen Long's Purple Metallic 1967 Mustang originally ordered in the Chicago area with a special order of "Fleet". At this time we are considering 1967 Purple Metallic as a different color than Lavender.



Mystic 1996 Cobra Mustang


A quantity of 2000 of the 1996 Mustang Cobras were painted with this special Mystic paint which changed colors depending on the light: from purple to green. This Mystic color was a $815 option and a bodyshop could purchase the paint for $1000 a gallon (1.5 gallons to paint a Cobra, it was a one coat application).



Extreme Rainbow 1997 Saleen Mustang


Extreme Rainbow is a color only offered on the 1997 Saleen Mustang. Depending on the lighting, this color changes from purple to blue.



Mystichrome 2004 Cobra Mustang


Mysti-chrome is a paint with special color shift ChromaFlair pigments. ChromaFlair light interference pigments came from Flex Products, Inc. in Santa Rosa, California. The paint shifts from a bright topaz that transitions to cobalt blue, then to royal purple, and finally into a deep onyx black as the viewing angle changes. The Mysti-Chrome package was over $4000 over a base Cobra. It included chrome wheels, the Mysti-Chrome paint, and Mysti-Chrome leather on the seats and steering wheel. The 1996 Mystic color was a different version of the paint. It transitioned through more of the color spectrum.
