I know this has been done before but I want to paint the 67 I just got... The hood has a hole in it so I am putting a GTE scoop thought to go all out and paint scheme as a GTE....

So maybe cardinal red top and gray bottom? What is the color code for the gray? Cardinal red is "T" I did not see any other ed for 67...other ideas? Will be doing a red of somesort for a few reasons....

Any Color shop worth their salt will be able to get you Mustang Candy Apple Red or Cougar Cardinal Red no problem.


And I like the color combo.:)

The Argent Silver bottom area really makes it easier for detailing, too. Gray/Silver hides ****oos and imperfections very nicely.

Yeah, I don't know what they called that one. It's been a while since I had painting done, I think they just looked up the factory color code thru Dupont..sorry I don't have any more, but my guy used Dupont and I know it was called Argent Silver.

Isn't it 1967 Sheffield Silver? Color code 4.

I think Phil Parcels told me that Sheffield silver was a Canada only color?
