It also has a white interior.....er originally was white....a little dirty now! (No Pics yet). This one is known as "Coup" because chickens were roosting on the top!
This.... is another Glen Green Bronco. Nice..

Please stop posting pictures of yellow broncos and calling it Glen Green.

Here's a proper video of "Glen" for the community to see.

Glen Green was a two year option only offered in 1975 and 1976 making it the most rare early bronco color.
Thanks for posting up thats a great example of Glen Green, can you shoot a few photos of the inner door posts or door jams? would like to see the color that hasn't been touched by UV / Sun. I had a very tough time trying to match the paint chip from ford with a clear coat on top. i agree the final color on my 76 turned out more on the yellow side than green, but like it anyway.

I'M LATE TO THE GAME BUT as I RECALL THE NAME was Gleenwood Green & BoxWood green. The BoxWood was darker . Like the one above my post.
& Seems like the lighter color was ..... Something Yellow. Maybe Glenwood yellow, Seems like we questioned why a Yellow was called green . I sold Dupont paint from 1967 until 1995. But in 1967 I didn't realise I needed to remember these colors over the rest of the industry.

Paint match for the original Glen Green is nigh impossible. Like I mentioned before my Bronco has been sitting unmolested in a garage since 1995. In the light with a cam it definitely plays tricks on you and can appear yellowish but should be a light greenish hue and should never appear true or light yellow. At least that's how mine looks. I've never actually seen another Glen Green bronco IRL. There is a thread on here about color codes and Glen Green is an actual color code for years 1975 and 1976 Broncos... Here's the only pick of door on the inside I have on my drive. The dash is powdered white by the way and not body colored. My weird factory stripe options with the all the green may make mine appear darker too.

I don't own mine any more, but as I recall the color seemed to photograph more yellow than it looks in person. Maybe I'm crazy...
