a new spin on the 1999-2000 Mustang for the 2001 model year. With 3
packages available with the coupe, and 2 packages for the GT, Ford
believes it has a Mustang for every buyer.
Ford also took the
liberty in changing around some of its exterior colors. Both Atlantic Blue
Clearcoat Metallic and Bright Atlantic Blue Clearcoat Metallic have been
replaced my True Blue Clearcoat Metallic. Sunburst Gold Clearcoat Metallic has
been ousted by Zinc Yellow Clearcoat. And lastly, Crystal White Clearcoat is
replaced my Oxford White Clearcoat. All interior colors remain the same as the
previous model year.
