We created this web site as a result of researching special and limited edition Mustangs. It was taking hours of work to identify the actual shades of special order paint colors from automotive paint chip pages. This lead us to digitize these pages and cross-reference them to production use on vehicles for an idea of what these colors actually looked like. We posted all the information on this site as well as When we found new special models we listed what they may have looked like and the special order colors. Many site visitors contacted us over the years of cars they have or have owned that matched that information. We have helped save many from junk yards when it was discovered they were special. Order the book today, see the some of the results of this research and the information and photos we received from site visitors.

Year/Make/Model Paint Code Lookup page: primarily for paint suppliers to link to or use, these pages are a quick way to look up a paint code for particular year/make/model. We have two versions: version 1, or version 2. Please view this for more information.

Compare Paint Chip pages side by side: You can now compare two paint chip images side by side to compare years, models, and makes. Simply press the "Anchor" link just above the paint chip. This will move the paint chip to the right, allowing you to select another paint chip. Check it out
