Paint codes
« on: August 29, 2018, 04:43:36 PM »
Does anyone know the paint codes for a 1967 GT-500?

Original color "Lime Gold" paint code???
What is the name and code for the white body racing stripes. Were they "Wimbleton White" or another shade of white?


Thanks for any help!

The side stripes were a decal made of white vinyl.

The racing stripes were not factory

The Lime Green was also used during 1968, so you can find the code here

Ford Code I   PPG43576   as far as I know,  there were no cars with Lemans stripes other than some promo cars. Ive not seen any invoices showing stripes but if I had to choose Id so WW  code M  PPG 8378  or if you wanted a brighter white PPG  2185

see attached...(it was a standard Ford color used on a number of cars including '67 Mustangs.  Colors for GT350 and GT500 were the same.  Very popular color - 25 percent of all '67 Shelby's were Lime Gold)
