I believe this is the case where the same color was called different things different years.Now that I saw this thread not so sure what do u think. My door sticker says the date of bronco is 2/76, no color code on door even though it has a line for color. My painter has my dash so I can't check the glove box but I am almost positive that color is Z. Do I have Z hot ginger metallic 75 or Z Copper Metallic from 76 chart. Seems like it was built so early in year that I might have the hot ginger poly. Thoughts?
I need a little help on interior colors. I've got a 1970 that I'm painting and I want to use original colors. My exterior is Candy Apple Red, and the original interior (as far as I can tell) was Parchment. What paint code do I use for the dash panel and door panels?
My '73 is a Y code (Burnt Orange) Explorer edition.
Like the listing in the first post, I have seen several listings for 73 and the Y code is omitted.
I ended up cleaning up a decent glove box door and had my local pint supplier scan it to mix up some base coat close enough to the original parchment for me.
though the original paint was a flatter, satin type single stage finish, I will painting this one with base coat clear coat. I have not sprayed the dash or door panels yet but I did use the base to tint the liner I sprayed inside the tub.
Here's some pictures of the glove box door test... new paint is on the left.
also the paint can in case it can help anyone down the road.
Here's a new table I created that lists all avalable colors alphabetically and then by years they were availalbe with the code for each year.
I've run across several discrepencies with these codes and think I have most of them worked out. If you see any others, please PM me with the details and any reference material that may clear it up.
