What color is this?

Im looking at buying my first super duty.

2001 Ford F-350 SD





From the picture it is a really odd color. Im not sure if its just the pictures, or if it really is an ugly color. The dealer has it listed as the color "teal."

If you guys could tell me what color code it is and then post some pictures of one in the same color, that would be great. I just want to know what other "customized" powerstrokes in this same color would look like.

Thanks guys.


If you didn't look at the add, it is a 2001 F-350 XLT cclb with 116,000 miles. The dealer is asking $12999. Now if only I could get my GMC sold before its gone...

Its over 300 miles away and a 5 hour drive! I live in Alaska, things are not always accessible... lol

Thanks for the reply though. I guess what im really looking for is other trucks painted this color to see how it looks.

Wow, that island blue is a really pretty color!



If you guys are correct and the truck I am interested in is Island metallic blue, then the pictures just must be crappy. I've got $7000 saved up, hopefully it will still be for sale in a month when I can come up with the coin...


I've always paid cash for vehicles, what are your guys opinion about purchasing now with $7000 and making payments for the rest, if everything checks out of course with the truck. I suppose maybe I could get it for $11000? from the dealer
