Finding your Ford Paint CodeLocation of Ford Paint Code
Ford makes it fairly easy to find the color code. It is always on the drivers door jamb.
Pre 1970 Fords can be problematic though. Ford was calling different paint colors the exact same name so a Ocean Blue in 1966 was completely different from an Ocean Blue in 1967. Different color code too.
The typical color code format is:
In our example plate above, the code is PM which corresponds to our:
However, you will rarely ever see the M6599 part.
You will typically just see PM. The color plate above shows Exterior Paint
Colors but often the color plate will show EX PT (for
Exterior Paint, but I bet you knew this already??) and then above or below
this, you will see the color code. To make matters just a tad confusing,
sometimes the actual color is embossed on the plate right in the middle and not where one
would expect it.
PM Bright Calypso Metallic Clearcoat.
Two Tone Combination
Same Color Code, Different Name
For example, PM/M6599 above we call Bright Calypso Metallic Clearcoat
It could also be called Bright Green Clearcoat, Speed Green Clearcoat, etc. depending on what
the marketing department decided to call it.
