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, 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?
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.
