Black Mustang Colors & Paint Codes - Black Mustang Colors & Paint Codes

Black has always been one of the more popular colors, especially on a Mustang! What is really interesting is there hasn't been a whole lot of changes to the color due to it only being changed 3 different shades in the entire history of the Mustang's production. This just comes to show that the simplicity of black brings about a simple, yet menacing look to this vehicle.

Raven Black

This was the first black that was introducted in the first year of the Mustang's production in 1964. This was the only shade used in this year and was the only back shade used up until 1975. Suprisingly, 1972-1974 didn't have any shades of Black on Mustangs. Starting in 1975, Raven Black became just the name "Black".

Black

The original "Black" shade lasted a very long time with the Mustang models starting from 1975 and lasting all the way to 2015! This original shade lasted such a long time because it stood the test of time! No matter which generation Mustang you had, black always was always at the top of the list in terms of looks and appeal.

Shadow Black (Absolute Black)

Starting in 2016 and is still being used on the the most current 2021 model today, Shadow Black is the newest version of the Mustang Black shade and we can't wait to see what's in store for the future! While this has more of a lighter shade to the black which brings a little more "pop" to the color, we at LMR think this is a look that would go great on any Mustang.
