66 dash color code

Post by shakotko » Tue Jul 10, 2018 7:23 pm

Hello.

I have a 1966 tbird convert. White seats with the light greenish dash face. Similar photo attached. I would like to repaint the portion facing the passenger since some rust is coming through. Would anyone know the color name or code for that greenish metal color?

Thanks Paul

The information you seek is probably still with the car. Take a look at the data plate, which should be riveted onto the end of the driver's side door. Feel free to post a photo of the plate (or the data itself) for help decoding. Another option is to reference the sticky at the top of this forum, which leads to a detailed docoding document.

Unless the dash has been repainted over the years, you'll find the interior color code on the plate. Now, finding a matching hue from modern paint dealers, that's a bit harder.

Color descriptions and paint numbers are in VTCI's 1964-66 Original Factory Specifications Manual (OFS). You're looking for the Ivy Gold interior (I'm going off of memory with name). Suggest going to an older auto body paint jobber with paint chip charts for interiors from 1966 for Fords/T-birds to find colors. I HIGHLY suggest you obtain/purchase a copy of the OFS manual as it has a WEALTH of info beyond just this kind of data.
