Default 1966 Sapphire Blue paint - help finding an equivalent

I need a match or reference for 1966 sapphire blue, that can translate to a modern system.

I am based in the UK, and have spoken with PPG colour helpline, with a bit of help, but they cannot give me a reference or code to assist with having this paint mixed.

So, does anyone on here have a sapphire blue reference, or another colour that is a close match to this colour?

My fastback is Sapphire Blue. I can take a look on the paint cans and see what they say.

Is your sapphire blue a shade of 1966? Because, I can find sapphire blue as a colour name, it spans Ford for years, but I must have it as the 1966 version.

The information I have is:

Data Tag code: G
Ford Code: M1905
Ditzler PPG: 13075 (this is outdated)
Dupont 4735L, , 181-97774

Yes, mine is the 1966 version, which was available as a standard color on Thunderbirds and on the Shelby.

It isn't enough information / reference to mix the paint. I wrote all of those codes on my original post in this thread.

I need a reference or colour code for a modern equivalent to 1966 Ford Sapphire Blue.

OK - whatever info you have on your tins / cans will be really useful. Hopefully there is a universal reference number / code / name on this colour.

How soon can you find out for me?

Oh well.

No, you didn't.

Modern equivalent? Colors are not equal. The Mustang shop I work with just calls the paint dealer and orders by the code number. No possibility of shipping it, of course, so you'll have to deal with a paint shop in the UK.

I would work with whomever can get that info here. I can't, it's about two weeks too late in the year.


Do you have an un-damaged, un-faded area, such as the underside of the decklid? Put the gun on it, and have that made up.

What I would NOT do is settle for some thing that's kinda close, like a late-model Japanese colour. A car like this is worth getting the right color. Sapphire Blue is a VERY rare colour for a 1966 Mustang.

PPG can mix it. www.tcpglobal.com/autocolorlibrary can also mix it and they have the PPG mix code.

Sapphire blue was a special order color for Mustangs, but it was a Shelby color. Even for those, it's not all that common.
