It seems like I read somewhere that the standard grills in '67 were "blued" similar to firearms. I'm not positive on that one and I haven't received the new one I ordered last week. Mine is original and what's left of it has lost it's finish.

Maybe someone else can confirm.

the original color is a grey blue similar to the 65 grille except a little darker. best thing to do is find an original 67 grille and match the paint.

some say GT grilles were painted black. there is some debate over this.

Like most Mustang grills everyone thinks they were semi-gloss black. Well at least that is what we thought when were were "restoring" them in the 70's

Blue grey originally as Charles listed

A close match would be Ditzler DDL 32930 or Duplic color 99-01106 (a bit shinny)

Hope this helps
