Factory Paint Colors

Does anyone here have paint codes or maybe even a sample chart for the paint colors for 61-66 f-100s?

I am trying to find the exact color of my Grandfathers truck. I remember it was a light blue. I think it was a 64 but not sure because we cant find and pictures that have the front of the truck in the photo. It had the styleside bed, three on the tree, bottle cap hubcaps and the side hood emblem only said Ford F100.

I grew up in this truck camping all over the place. We did everything in that truck. It pulled a teardrop trailer all the way to a 30ft trailer. It had a cab over camper and a small shell on it. My brother and I even learned how to drive in that truck ( he was 11 and I was 7 ) in the back parking lot of the local grocery store. Gramps said that we needed to know how to just in case somthing happend and we needed to get help.


Thanks for all your help guys ! ! !

Chris

If the emblems on the side of the hood were the shield type and said Ford on the top, then 100 below, it was a 1963/64.

If the emblems on the side of the hood were shaped like spears and said Ford 100, it was a 1961/62.

1965/66's did not have side hood emblems. The emblems were below the hood at the rear of the front fenders.

I have the genuine Ford factory color charts with the actual paint chips for 1965/66 cars & trucks

You are welcome to swing on by and have a look at them. Have tons of other references, also.

Actual Ford color: LIGHT BLUE = 1963/65 = Promotional color name: ACADEMY BLUE.

Been contemplating buying the Parts Manual CD, not sure which one yet, on the otherhand, may just download all of Bills threads.

You won't find the Color chips in the parts catalog, only the Color codes themselves are listed.

The Color chips used at this time were on a single sheet of heavy paper, were designed to be inserted into the parts catalog.

Ford sent them yearly to the dealers just before the new models were introduced.

Most of these sheets were tossed out after several years. Most of them...

Pasadena Ford closed last August, the dealer had been in the same location since 1921.

I knew the Parts Manager since he was a punk kid, was my back counter parts driver at Beverly Hills Ford (1969/70).

He gave me all their bound paper parts catalogs (over 60) dating back to 1928, all their microfiche slides (over 500) and the microfiche viewer = FREE.

Inserted into the car & truck parts catalogs, I found the 1961/68 HiPo parts catalogs, the 1965, 1966 (and 1967) Color chip sheets, the 1965 & 1966 Car & Truck Accessory Catalogs, Holman & Moody Parts Catalogs.

I also got the impossible to find Ford Master Cross Reference Catalogs (2) that cover 1959/72.

These catalogs decode the ID numbers found on parts. Everything from cylinder heads to seat frames to transmission cases.

The paper parts books...IF you are lucky enough to find them and afford them SOMETIMES will have some of these...same color samples of the interior fabrics...just pics though...no actual samples...
As for the parts manual on disc...money well spent if you are gonna be restoring or doing detail work on your truck.

I am very much looking forward to my next visit to LA...always a great trip.
