Ok, first time I pulled the seats since bought her last year. My seats are at the upholstery shop getting new vinyl in the same colors. What color carpet do I need? After clearing off all this burlap, what else should I get to finish it? I'm sure it's not Ford Blue, but Dark Blue or Aqua/turqoise? AHHH Too many colors to pick from!

Depends on your interior color code, but looks like a standard blue with dark blue appointments interior. Mine is code 27, Aqua / Turquoise and takes the Turquoise carpet, definitely has more green in it. I would go with the darker of the two blues on yours. It should be close to the dash pad and seat insert color.

My interior code is 22, Lt. Blue Crinkle Vinyl and Blue Rosette Vinyl, Standard. The ACC color doesn't really list anything like that.

Thanks!

No, they have their own descriptions. You have the standard 66 blue interior. I've had several cars with that. You need to order "Ford Blue" to get the correct original color carpet. Don't panic when it doesn't match the seats, it never did. That photo in Travis' post shows it. An oddity with 66-67 blue interiors.

BTW, I tried "Dark Blue" once. Hated the result, looked nothing like "correct". Ford was right.

ACC will send you samples if you call them.
It may help you decide which is a better match

I have an interior code of D9. That is parchment with palomino accents. This is for a 66 coupe. I’ve been looking around for palomino dash pad and carpet. None listed. Can anyone tell me what color palomino would be now? Thanks.

Palomino is a brown color. I have only seen a couple of 66 Parchment and Palomino Interior cars over the years.
65 Mustangs had a full Palomino colored interior. But the dash pad is not the same as a 66.
For the dash pad you will be using a can of spray dye to change the color of the pad. Just the way it is.

I have been pondering changing the black standard interior in my Red 66 coupe over to Parchment with Palomino.

The reason I’m wondering is, I have a black dash and black carpet. Everything else is parchment. I love the color with the Sahara beige exterior. I was looking at some carpet colors and was wondering what the palomino accents would look like.

The concours-correct color doesn't match.
This is the 66 blue carpet color. Nothing else in the interior is this color. Of course, the headliner doesn't match, either.

A rare color indeed. The dash pad is strictly not available. I'd advise dying a black one to match. That makes it easy.
I think "medium saddle" is the way to go on that one. You might like "dark saddle" better. Hard to say what's original, I've only seen one or two originals, and they were likely faded. Whichever matches the dyed pad best.
