This will be a bit lengthy.
my 66 is a Z code ext. paint. However, Z code is listed as mettalic sage in my reference book. That is not the color it presently is. I like the repaint that it is, it is close to the 67 color lime gold. Since it is a daily driver I will probably have the present color matched and repainted. The interior is pony, and coded ivy gold, which I don't believe is an exterior option in 66. Could someone have matched the interior color and repainted it as such? It is very close to that. I have no Idea what mettalic sage looks like, is it close to ivy gold? Sorry for the rambling, I'm just very curious.

Code "Z" for 1966 was Sauterne Gold and by the way you describe the color of your car it sounds like it's the correct hue. I drove a Sauterne Gold '66 hardtop in the late-eighties and many people would refer to the car as my "green" Mustang.

Yep code Z. I know it well. It is indeed Metallic Sage, also known as Sauterne Gold.
Go to here:
and it shows both Lime Gold and Sauterne Gold in the same page. Yes I realize it's 67 page,
but the Z code looks the same here as the 66 color sample.
Obviously, you can't get a great deal of idea from this little splotch.

The Z code is not as green as the Lime Gold color. The color is hard to describe. I wish
I had a scanner, or I'd send you some pics. I like it, but it has to grow on you a little. I have
no idea what ivy gold looks like, so i can't help you there.

hope this helps.
