Aside from engine size, the one thing everyone wants to know when you're working on a Mustang is probably "What color?" In fact, favorite Mustang color inspires just as many passionate arguments as favorite engine or favorite model year!
The first Mustang to roll off the assembly line was definitely white, though there's some debate as to whether it was a hardtop or convertible.
Popular Mustang Paint Colors
For the 2011 model year, the most popular color was black, accounting for over a quarter of the cars sold. Yellow blaze metallic, aside from being the only tri-coat offered that year, was the least popular, making up less than one percent of cars sold.

Mustang Paint Products at CJ Pony Parts
Due to variances at the factory and the effects of time, no two Mustang paint jobs are the same. To match the color of your existing paint, we recommend going to your local body shop and asking them to mix you a custom batch. That being said, we do offer a number of products that can help you paint your Mustang, including rust-resistant chassis paint, flat black trim paint, clear coat and primer. Thinking of doing a complete paint job, either to change the color or to freshen up the original paint? Check our How To Paint Your Mustang by Jerry Heasley, an illustrated guide available in our online store.
