Punny Paint Names

Updated: Oct 8

As I migrate all of the Autombillustrations content to the new website, I was researching color trends and somehow I ended up reading about how Ford came up with the Maverick (the '70s car, not the current truck).

It inspired me to illustrate the Maverick, so here's a preview of a 1971 2-door Ford Maverick in "Antestablish Mint Green".

Someone with a sense of humor at Ford went all out with puns when naming car paint, because if you were in the market for a new mid-size car at the time, you could've also picked a "Hulla Blue", "Original Cinnamon", "Freudian Gilt", or a "Thanks Vermillion". colored Maverick. Ha!
