1965 paint code

Post by loman »

My 65 Comet door data tag has color "5" stamped on it. What is the official color name and does anyone know the correct paint code. I went to the Napa store with the Ford code M1731 and Martin senor paint code 1618 and the guy couldn't find either. Is the color Ocean Turquoise or Twilight turquoise? Also, talking to the crew chief he says that 65 Mustangs never came in that color. I find that hard to believe the same colors wouldn't be offered between Ford & Mercury. Surely they used the same colors but maybe different names. Anybody have any info on paint code "5"?
