Best Shades Of Mustang Blue

True Blue (2001-03)

Most notably, this color came as one of the three colors on the 2001 Bullitt and had only 722 total made in this color. While the Highland Green is the most notable color option for the Bullitt, the Blue Bullitt is a must-have for those wanting that extra degree of uniqueness. Check out our article that goes into further detail about the 2001 Bullitt.

Sonic Blue (2002-05)

This color started towards the end of the SN95s and actually lead into the first year of the S197! This 4-year stint clearly showed the popularity of this color at the time and how it provided such a popular shade of blue for the Mustangs of its time.

Azure Blue (2003-04)

This is a very well-known color that was only offered on the 2003-04 Mach 1s. Even today they are still such a sought-after vehicle that hold their value so well! Any true Mustang fan knows the importance of the Mach 1 blue and how it separates itself from the rest of the pack.

Grabber Blue (2010-14, 2017, 2022)

We wrote about this iconic color in one of our earlier articles, but this color became most popular on the 1970 BOSS 302 and originated completely by accident! It is very similar to Petty Blue and the only reason Grabber Blue came about is because of the Petty brothers (Richard and Maurice). One day they were painting a car and they ran out and ended up having to mix the dark blue and white paints together instead of separate so they could finish painting. Over time this color was produced with a slightly lighter shade which became the iconic Grabber Blue.

Lightning Blue (2017-18)

This color brought a very unique twist in its 2-year run. This is very similar to the Liquid Blue that fans wanted but was a nice alternative because it didn’t cost as much as the $12k paint job that the Liquid Blue would have been. We even have a shop car of our own with the Lightning Blue color!

Antimatter Blue (2021)

This shade of Ford’s blue color was last offered in 2021 and everything that is being said about this new color is that it looks almost black with blue metallics embedded deep into the color. Not much has been revealed of the characteristics about Antimatter Blue Metallic, but it is definitely one of the more desirable blue colors!

Oil Slick Blue-Purple (2022)

The Oil Slick Blue-Purple Mustang color is one of the most talked about Mustang color of 2022! The reason is because it closely resembles the rare and popular Mystic/Mystichrome colors from the SN95/New Mustangs. With its blend of both Blue and Purple we can't wait to see what this color looks like off the showrooms floor!
