Those Wild Paint Colors!

Remember those awesome names Ford gave some of their paint colors back in ’69 and ’70? In addition to the “Grabber” colors, the marketing folks also decided to take advantage of the culture and trends of that era. We’re glad they did, because it gave us some standout print ads and commercials.

1969-Ford
In 1969, there was Thanks Vermillion, Freudian Gilt, Anti-Establish Mint, Dresden Blue and Hulla Blue.

1970-Ford
In 1970, we had Bring ’Em Back Olive, Last Stand Custard, Freudian Gilt, Three Putt Green, There She Blue, Good Clean Fawn, Counter Revolutionary Red, Home on the Orange, Hulla Blue, and Anti-Establish Mint.

Grabber colors offered for 1970: Grabber Blue, Grabber Orange, Grabber Green.

1971-Ford
In 1971, the party was dying down. The only “fun” color offered was Anti-Establish Mint.

Grabber colors offered for 1971: Grabber Yellow, Grabber Lime, Grabber Blue.

1972-Ford
By 1972, Ford still offered a vast selection of colors, but the party names had all vanished. Grabber Blue was the sole survivor of the “Grabber era”, and was axed after the 1974 model year.
