Wow!

Thank you Drew(?) for what no doubt was some real time and energy spent compiling this spreadsheet for the benefit of all of us.

Ever since I discovered that the dash was NOT painted in the Wimbledon White as the top, I have been on the hunt for any definitive information on the dash color (Parchment). This will hopefully be information sufficient enough for my painter to source the right color.

THAT SAID: If anyone has any further info on the Parchment dash color, I'll take it.

Again... HUGE gratitude.

Doug.

Here's a new table I created that lists all available colors alphabetically and then by years they were available with the code for each year.

I've run across several discrepancies 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.

I have a 69 Bronco. It is Candy Apple Red and has the white stripes along the rocker panels from the rear of the vehicle to the front. Are those stickers? They look like it. Are they hard to get off without damaging the paint? Were they an option or associated with a specific package? Sorry for all the questions!

Doug,

Thanks, I've been working on this a different times for quite a few years pulling from several different types of source material in my growing collection.

A week or so ago I added some additional paint codes for parchment, and 66 gray interior paint at the bottom of the spreadsheet that is linked on Google drive.

Jim,

Those sound like they were added by someone, so I have no idea whether they were painted on or are decals.

1966 was the only year for rocker stripe decals and they were only between the fender wells on the rockers and rear portion of the fender and front portion of the quarter.

The Ranger stripe is the other one that went along the bottom, but those were not introduced until 1973.

Originally painted on and in 66 only as Drew mentioned. White or red.

The offending stripes were removed this morning. Very easy with the help of a hair dryer. The Bronco looks so much better!!

Bringing this back up.

All years that had a candy apple red show 2008 Red as the color.

Can I presume this color would be the same from year to year?

I first found this thread when I was looking for touch up paint for my 66 Wimbledon white. I read about the “thin” quality of the duplicolor rattle cans but thought so what... two coats. Well three coats later I’m pleased to say the match is fantastic. Some welding on the window frame and a quick spray blend and the colors are identical... the hinges were sagging so I made bronze oilite bushings. The window frame was hitting the B pillar and caused the window frame to crack on three sides at the vent window. Some wire feed welding and sanding a quick flash of primer and three thin coats of the duplicolor and bang. I wouldn’t mix my paint that thin but it covered and leveled well... very happy. Thanks for the list of colors and codes! The lower end I painted the scratch is on original paint. I’ll hit it with 3M Finnesse-it and the gloss will be there! Thanks!

A local bronco friend redid his dash with a duplicolor matching paint in Wimbledon white and turned out very nice as well

What a great thread. Doug your amazing. Thanks for the hard work. I have a 76 y code but I have heard of a debate going on what that orange looked like. Y code was not accurate apperently.

Yep. My '76 still sports its original orange paint but apparently there was no orange in 1976?
