    Has Ford released a list of what colors will be avilable on the 2005 Mustang? Any speculation?

    Nothing yet.

    But you can bet that there will be carry over colors from this model year.

    If they are truly going to go retro, then they should have a very wide variety of colors to choose from.
    1965 you could choose from 17 colors
    1966 18 plus 5 special colors
    1967 20 plus 8 special colors
    1968 16 colors
    2000 10 colors

    Also in 1965 you could pay $93 to have you Mustang special ordered in ANY color Ford offered on ANY car.

    All info on this post was taken from the "Mustang Red Book 3rd edition" By Peter Sessler and was published in 2000.

    Geez, that's right, they did have a lot more color selection back then, I didn't realize it had dropped off in 68, my 72 Mach1 had several "glow" colors to choose from, my mistake was picking "GoldGlow" (I think that was the name anyway) that was back before clearcoat, and damn was it hard to keep!!

    Well with 120 some-odd gauge color choices...It's probably a safe bet you'll have a good # of exterior choices.

    I hope so! I just hope that with all these options Ford doesn't put the price of the Mustang at the price of a Vette.

    In 1965 my Fastback MSRP'd for $2,639. It was also a special order color so ad $93 for the color. So my car was $2,732.

    Yep, it's hard to believe what the prices were, my '68 was stickered at $3300. and my loaded '72 Mach1 was like $4800, damn!!!! For what I paid for my '00, could have bought 8 '68's, or a damn nice house! LOL!

    Hmmmm I wonder if they are gonna offer that chromashift paint that you can get on the 04 Cobra.I think it's fugly but an intresting option. Just as long as they keep Sonic blue,Torch Red, and bring back Highland Green I think I'll have my hands full picking from just those.

    Too bad you can't get ghost flames from the factory. :)

    If they have true blue I'm not sure I will be able to pick anything over it. Highland green would be real nice, also.

    i agree with that:) it would make sence to have a variety of exterior colors to personalize it. from reading ford's site and other posts, it's what they seem to be focusing on for the new car.

    I think the current mustangs would be slick w/ some other Ford colors than what it comes with... Like the bright metallic blue that the Focus and Windstar have, and the Metallic Seafoam green that Focuses Have, or some Golds, Tans, and that Deep maroon... or the light yellow from the Thunderbird, or that shade of light blue/sea green...


    The new model better have Acapulco Blue, Grabber green and blue (not orange, yuck.. no offense) Highland green, Gulfstream Aqua, Ivy Gold, and some other original colors.... damn they would be sexy..

    I for one would like to see some really classic collors surface. What about teal? They could use the paint code off of the new T-bird. THAT is a sexy color and would look amazing on that car! I'm not partial to teal because my car is teal :p I'd also like to see a vintage burgandy color. It's not too much of a streach because they already make one, don't they? I know they're making a special eddition this year that is actually vintage burgandy with champaign colored stripes and parchment interior! It's beautiful. It would be even more beautiful on one of the new ones. :nice:

    true blue is definately a must it is such a cool color. A new paint color i have grown very fond of is the new green on the Mazda RX-8 i think it is tundra either way a very hot color would be good on the stangs.
