If the color code is blank, does that mean that the car was a special ordered color? Does this include Playboy Pink? It is on a 67 - looks like a Mary Kay car, but all indications are that the paint is original. Also, it has a real long DSO on it, like 177117. What the #$##!!! does that mean?

as far as i remember a blank paint code means a special order... dont know what it means on your car though, someone else on the VMF will clear it up

the long DSO is the actual special order number of this specific car. Playboy Pink (named as such because Hugh hefner ordered some of these for his harem) was a spec order color in '67.

Blank paint codes are indicative of special order colors. Pink is one of them. I have a pink 66-I honestly don't know if it is "Playboy" but that is what I've always called it. I used to have a same shade pink 66 convertible. When the front fender was removed, visible in maker on the outside of the engine bay was "***** Wagon" . LOL!!

BTW- PINKIE's license plate holder says "Barbie and Mary Kay never had it this good!"

The blank exterior paint color matched with the 6 digit special order DSO number indicate a car odered with other than one of the regular production exterior colors (had a number of these)

If you car has a buck tag it will indicate the color as part of the code found at the bootom of the tag and the build sheet if found, will also have the same number at its bottom also. Since your car was sold in or around Washington DC You should look for the buck tag if its still there.

In 67 there were a number of "pinks" offered
in mid year 67 they offered a color used originally on 57 Lincoln (Flamingo) but it differs from "Playboy pink"

Hope this helps a little
