Correct Interior Colors for 1965 Blue Pony Interior

I have a Fastback built on April 7, 1965 in San Jose that has the blue with white pony interior. It is now completely Red and I want to change back everything to be correct. Does anyone have any pictures of the correct colors of the entire interior for this car? I don't know the metal color of the inside doors, the Dash Color, the headliner color, for that matter I really don't have much of an idea what the colors are besides the seats. Since everything is currently wrong it's kind of hard to know what is correct.
Thanks
Todd

This won't help you at all but my interior is blue when it was originally red! I've always thought it was funny that someone went through that much work 30 years ago.

66 fastback, 302, T5, 380 gear (Yeah, I call it a fastback)
69 Camaro restomod, ZZ3, 700r4, 4.11 Moser 12 bolt w/Eaton posi, Wilwood 4 wheel disc brakes
(No, I don't call it pro-touring)
72 Camaro, gathering parts for restoration

Are you asking about the two-tone blue/white deluxe interior or the white with blue appointments deluxe interior? Do you know the interior code on your data plate?

It is the blue with white appointments, so it is mostly silver blue with a small white panel. The car is at the restoration shop and I do not have the code handy,

If it is white with blue appointments, the general would color scheme would be like this (if you substitute blue for red).



Basically, everything is white except for the dash pad, carpet, and seat belts.

Thanks, but actually I really need to know which blue, I have been told there is a 65 blue on earlier cars and a 66 blue that is also found on later 65 cars. I have seen some with a silver blue color and some with a medium blue color. for instance I have seen the door with silver blue door panels yet the textured metal is a medium blue. The guys that I get my restoration parts from say that the silver blue color is correct for my late 65 car, does that mean the door panels and textured metal on the door is all silver blue, does that mean the dash pad and metal dash is all silver blue or is the metal silver blue and the pad a contrasting med. blue? I just want to make sure what is right before I spend a lot of money. Does any body have pictures of a late 65 interior in my color combo?

There was a paint code typo in one of the resto books (Dobbs, IIRC) years ago, so there's more confusion here than there should be.

R/M 5747 Med Blue Irid is correct for '65 standard interiors
R/M 5748 Light Blue Irid is for '65 deluxe and all '66

That typo led to all kinds of weird Frankenstein combos. My '65 standard had been repainted with the incorrect '65 deluxe/'66 color back around 1981.

If your interior code is 62, Here's the picture from Klaus Early Mustang.
I'm pretty sure this is how it's suppose to look.


If this is 100% correct and the 1966 light blue Irid 5748 color is right for all blue painted metal, here is the custom mix color exact match that I had created from the INSIDE surface of one of my factory quarter trim panels. It was obviously factory paint and had never seen the light of day, so it wasn't faded. The PPG TPC Global BC/CC product without the clear topcoat was what was suggested to me as what most closely replicates the Lacquer finish that was used at the factory. The spray-out card was completed with paint that was manually matched by hand. Then the spray-out card was scanned with the X-Rite Profit machine and a computer formula was generated. I am very happy with the color and gloss level if I use the Global BC without any clear topcoat. I don't have any white in MY car since it is not a Pony car, but standard 66 Blue like mine, and 65 Pony Blue, like yours, are the same color.
