I tried that with my special order paint car and they came up with "sage bronze" which seems to be the FoMoCo code cracker program default for special order paint cars. The last time I tried it with any VIN and left the paint code blank it said exterior color: "sage bronze". Luckily I found my build sheet with the special order color notation proving my car's original color.Call the "history 999" report number at 1-800-392-3673 ( American Ford Customer Assistance ). Info available for '67-88 models based on article in 2001 MM. Ask for a "broadcast sheet" which lists the options for your car. They will need your VIN of course. It is FREE & they will mail it to ya -- whatta bargain.
