Nearing 60th Anniversary, Mustang Still Encourages Freedom of Expression

Feb 26, 2024

Just shy of Mustang’s 60th birthday, Ford is still finding ways for customers to customize their favorite pony car. Beginning Tuesday, they will be able to order new Mustangs with the car’s first-ever factory Matte Clear Film. 

The film gives Mustang a satin-like finish and protects the car’s paint against things like harsh detergents used at car washes and road salt, as well as bird droppings and bug splatter. It is just one of the many, many ways customers can make their Mustang unique. 

“Mustang has been about driving freedom and freedom of expression for 60 years, and our new Matte Clear Film provides a whole new way for customers to make Mustang their own,” said Laurie Transou, Mustang Chief Program Engineer. 

Matte Clear Film is available on all Mustang coupe models and in all factory paint colors. It will be available on all Mustang convertible models in the fourth quarter of 2024. Click here to read more about specifics and availability.
