My VIN number indicates Ivy Green to be the original color - not enough paint left on the car to determine what this actually should look like.

Anyone have a picture or a source for a picture?


TIA

Sorry, but your VIN cannot tell you the paint code. Do you mean the door tag?

Thanks

saw that the other day - problem is - so dark I can't really see a difference between that and black. Ever seen it on a car?

If you private message me with your e-mail address I can send a couple pics of an ivy green shelby gt350. My first car, a '66 coupe was that color. I liked it alot. Nice green color when it was bright outside, but when it night, it looked like a black color.

Thanks guys

All the pics I'd seen looked black. Didn't want a black car. Still trying to decide whether or not to go with the original color

It is a hard color to photograph. There is an Ivy Green Conv. for sale near my house, I thought it was Black until I got closer to it. It is a great color, I suggest you visit some shows or your local club and look at one first hand.

Ivy Green is a beautiful color. When it's bright and sunny outside it is a softish metallic green with a real nice depth to it, but when it is darker outside it appears to be a deeper green on top of a black background. Doesn't actually get all the way to black (in my opinion), but it does get really dark. Ivy Green is #2 on my list of favorite colors right behind Black Jade ... I like the darker close-to-black look the Black Jade gives. But, to be honest, both of those colors are very hard to photograph and do justice to.

If you go with the Ivy Green you will have a beautiful car. If you decide not to because you don't care for the color, I hope you find a nice one that suits what you want the car to be. Good luck with it one way or the other!

Here's a link to my Ivy Green 65 GT. Hope this helps. It does seem to be a very difficult color to photograph. But I do love it. And there aren't too many out there.

Thanks everybody

Based on the overwhelming response - I think I will stay with the stock color - it really is an interesting color

1966 Fastback - in a million pieces - wait a minute - where are the floors???

I just got my April 2001 issue of Mustang Monthly and on page 44 there is a beautiful Ivy Green '65 Mustang GT Fastback. Just thought I'd share.
