New Edge Mustang Paint Codes | 1999-04 - New Edge Mustang Paint Codes | 1999-04

When it is time to upgrade the exterior of your New Edge Mustang by adding a 2003-04 SVT Cobra front bumper or a new cowl hood, you will need to know your correct paint code before your pony car goes to paint. This article will cover the basics of where to find your correct paint code and will cover the 1999-04 New Edge Mustang colors that were used!

1999 marked some major changes for the SN95 Ford Mustang. The aging chassis that started with the 1979 Fox Body Mustang was now 20 years old and needed to make a splash to take attention away from the newly LS-powered, high-performance Chevrolet Camaro. While keeping the shape of the SN95 Mustang, the 1999 model year dubbed “New Edge” featured significant exterior changes with sharper edges, a complete facelift on the front and rear of the car including new headlights and taillights, and large side scoops.

Performance wise, the Mustang GT would receive Performance Improved (PI) cylinder heads and intake manifold bumping the horsepower from 225 to 260 and torque up to 302 lb/ft. from 290 lb/ft. These numbers would remain for the GT variant through 2004. However, Ford would offer several different “performance packages” or upgraded models for the last years of the Fox Chassis including The return of the Mach 1 Mustangs, the 2001 Bullitt only offered with a manual transmission with its beautiful Dark Highland Green, and the continuation of the 32v, DOHC SVT Cobra now featuring an independent rear suspension.

As one can imagine, with the noted changes, the 99-04 paint colors would also need to fit the revised Flagship of FoMoCo. Mustang fans of all ages appreciate one of the best Mustang colors ever to be used on the color-changing SVT Cobra of 1996. Its Mystic paint job would switch between purple, deep green, orange, and even gold depending on the light and angle you viewed it. On a production vehicle, this was the first time an OEM color that changed appearance was used!

With the Mystichrome SVT Cobra, Ford brought back a version of this rare Mustang in 2004. Color-changing paint was also used on the front seats and steering wheel. It's worth noting that if a 2000 SVT Cobra was built, a unique color-changing option called Mystic Gold would be used. This almost-used paint would have changed from a vibrant metallic yellow and orange to a green tint when exposed to light. Unfortunately, the 2000 Mystic Gold SVT Cobra was never built due to the 1999 SVT Cobra's Intake and exhaust recalls.
