Ford code M6284 M6284A - yellow
This yellow automotive paint color is most commonly known as School Bus Yellow. Other common color promotional names include Chrome Yellow and Peacock Yellow. The color formulation has been used between 1988 and 2020, primarily by Ford; but also by NBC. We have records of this color appearing on the following models: Ford Truck, Econoline, Transit, F650, F750, F250, F450, F350, F550, F150, Escape, and Mustang. See the full detailed list below.

Ford paint manufacturing codes come in two forms, the short 1 to 3 digit model/year code which changes frequently and the longer 4 digit code which starts with the letters "M", "WT", or "MX70x". M are production paints, WT and MX are commercial or special order. These longer codes don't change over the years for a particular paint formulation; therefore, it is the best code to track the usage of Ford paint. 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.
