1968 Ford Orange paint
This orange automotive paint color is most commonly known as simply 'Orange'. Other common color promotional names include Special Orange, Flower Power Red, and Tractor Mustang Red (Orange). The color formulation has been used between 1960 and 1984, primarily by Ford; but also by Gravely and 7up. We have records of this color appearing on the Mustang and Ford Special Order / Fleet. See the full detailed list below.

The short model/year code for this paint in 1968, is M1730. The longer Ford paint manufacturing code is MX707712. Ford paint codes starting with MX are usually older (pre 1970) special order paints that have been matched to popular paints from other manufacturers such as GM or Chrysler. This longer manufacturing code is useful for tracking paint usage.
