Most Notable Mustang Blue Colors


Grabber Blue (1969-72, 2010-14, 2017)

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). Once 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.

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.

Spanning both S197 and S550 generations, it brought with it such a unique shade that it was even debuted on the 50th Anniversary Mustang in 2015.

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!

Velocity Blue (2019-20)

This shade is Ford’s newest blue color and blends so well with the dark trim pieces of the Mustang. This color is very similar to its predecessor, the Lightning Blue but has that slight change in color to make it really pop!
