“Bright Yellow” was an iconic color that was made most popular on the Boss 351. This color lasted until 1971 and was replaced with the name “Grabber Yellow”. It was first used on the Shelby Mustang in 1969-70, after that it was a standard color on the Mustangs in 1971.
This was one of three paints that were offered on the 1971 Mustang. This color was most notable on the 1971 Mach-1 Mustang and provided a nice blend of gold and yellow to create a unique look that has stood the test of time.
Starting in 2000, this color was only offered in the Spring and was a special paint that was offered at no extra charge. Gold was the only color that was close to this shade during the 2000 year, but starting in 2001 it became offered for the entire year.
This shade blended into 2 different body styles of the Mustang from the SN95 to the S197. Most colors tended to stick to one specific generation of Mustang, but this was a great decision by Ford to blend two generations because the lovers of the 2004 screaming yellow color were more likely to buy a 2005 or 2006 because the change wasn’t as drastic. Having a resemblance to Chrome Yellow, it provided a fresh new shade that will be admired by enthusiasts for generations!
This is the only yellow shade offered on S550 Mustangs and was long-awaited since the last yellow Mustang shade which was the “School Bus Yellow” was offered two years prior in 2013. This color pairs extremely well with black accent pieces such as stripes and wheels. Triple Yellow was only offered in 2015-18 with no yellow shade being offered in 2019-20.
