Here are the postings I was able to find...
I captured the text of the postings I found and saved them to my home PC. I wasn't able to access them earlier because I was responding from my work PC. I hope they help. I was unable to get my local paint supplier to match the codes to a usable single stage. Buying them in base/clear and flattening the clear might be an option.
FROM THE "S" CODE REGISTRY SITE:
there's two reds group 1 is *r/m#5773r group 2 *r/m#5732r dupont color.
group 1: instrument panel, steering col. door trim panel,console,arm rest pads and kick panels..
group 2: lower windsheild mouldings, crash pads, windlace, windshield posts, sun visors, metal door surface, qrt. panel trim and overhead strip.
FROM THE OLD FoMoCo SITE IN RESPONSE TO A QUESTION:
My 1967 FB S-Code shows the following: 1967 Ford Interior Paint Code: 5773 - Red 1967 Ford Exterior Paint Code: 71528 - T - Candyapple Red (#2008-A off of Marti Report) 2D - Red Bucket Seats
According to my records, the Red interior found in thousands of 1967 Mustangs was a 'tutone' - ie: created by using two shades of paint. Much as is the case with appointments, the darker shade is used around the crashpad and the other is used everywhere else.
2.) Was the interior of these cars truly red or maroon/wine colored usually? Was it a mix of both red and wine/maroon?
The specified shades are Red Metallic (Ford #1968; old PPG/Ditzler #71541) and Dark Red Metallic (Ford #2082; old PPG/Ditzler #71566). I wouldn't refer to the darker shade as 'Maroon', but I can see why some folks might.
1.) is there any way to determine when I order carpet for example, whether I need RED or MAROON?
I think it bears mentioning here that Ford offered no 'choice' of carpeting for your application. Of course, this begs the question of just what in heck the 'repro' guys are peddling, these days. Here's a similar thread that might be of some interest.
Anyway, Ford offered only one shade of carpet for your car...called, oddly enough, 'Red'. ;-) For the record, this was the only Red carpeting offered for any 1967 Mustang. I checked my old sample-books and it looks like a close match to the lighter shade of interior paint.
Hope this helps.
If this info is incorrect I apologize, but I believe it to be accurate. Hopefully you can make some use of it.
If it can't be fixed with a hammer, you have an electrical problem...(stolen from the H.A.M.B.)
