This brown automotive paint color is most commonly known as Prairie Bronze. Other common color promotional names include Pecan Frost, Burnished Bronze, and Light Gun Metal Gray. The color formulation has been used between 1935 and 1965, primarily by Ford; but also by Mercury and Lincoln. We have records of this color appearing on the following models: Lincoln, Thunderbird, Mustang, Mercury, Comet, Fairlane, Falcon, Galaxie, and Ford Truck. See the full detailed list below.

The short model/year code for this paint on a Mustang in 1965, is P. The longer Ford paint manufacturing code is M1738 or M1738A. Ford production paint codes starting with M are usually followed by a 4 digit number and the letter "A" indicating its an exterior paint. The same code ending in the letter "G" is common for interior paints. The longer Chrysler paint manufacturing code, sometimes called the "Dodge Truck paint code" is DT6286. These longer manufacturing codes are useful for tracking paint usage.
