Paint Color Code?

I used to have a 1995 F-250 which I miss a lot, but being in college when gas went up a few years ago, I could no longer afford to put gasoline in it, as many of you with getting 10 mpg highway loaded or unloaded. So anyhow, I was wondering if anyone can tell me what Ford called the color, as when I graduate here in a year, I am going to find a nice 1996 F-250 or F-350, and have it painted to match my old truck. I have only ever seen 3 truck so far in my life this same color. As far as I can tell it was called Deep Forest Green Metallic. I can't get the paint code off of it, obviously, because I no longer have it. The color sort of changed from blue to green depending on the light it was in, as you can see from the picture.

Thanks.

Mike

Had a problem with my match, also. NAPA has a paint supplier in Cols. OH that nailed it. Type and factory #. You can call this store (740)474-2131. Mine is the sweetist blue just like the factory produced, and kinda rare.

I have the same color, they changed the name to "Tourmaline". I believe the color code is NA.

That was a pretty truck, too bad you don't have it anymore. What motor did it have?

gmk035, thank you for the code. The truck had a 460 in it, hence the gas mileage. It also had F-350 springs in the rear with overloads. When I sold it, it had 127,000 on it, and was still running like new.

TexasGuy001 has a very good reputation on FTE.TexasGuy001 has a very good reputation on FTE.TexasGuy001 has a very good reputation on FTE.TexasGuy001 has a very good reputation on FTE.
Thats a great color. My previous truck was a 95 XL that was deep forest green metallic with the tobago (teal) lower accent.

FYI, If you repaint a truck and change the color, the door jambs, underhood, between bed and cab etc all need to be painted or it will never look right.

Maybe someone that as a truck this color can check their door sticker.

Look at the drivers door post and where it says paint. Well that's your paint code.
And if your looking for the color name, then post the code and we can tell you.
