Would a Code 62 car actually have three colors? Light Blue, Med. Blue, and White - Where the Med. Blue was the dash pad area and pony seat inserts?

I don't think so.  The chart from "How To restore Your Mustang" Lists Medium Blue Irid as the only blue for code 62.  Although the picture from Klaus' site doesn't show the pony inserts.  I will search and see what I can find for pictures of original code 62 interior.

Here's a couple of interior shots of my 66 "K" code Fastback interior with code 62. As you can see, the dash pad, carpet and belts are dark blue, the door paint and seats are medium blue. The exterior is Silver Blue, code Y.

Jim,
Would you say the dash pad etc matches the color used in the code 22 lt. Blue/dk. blue interior?  Also, are the pony seat inserts on the original covers a darker shade of blue as the rest of the vinyl as we saw in the red interior?

This picture seems to show a darker color for the pony inserts.  The overwhelming majority of the other pictures I've found (which I am assuming are repops) have the pony inserts the same blue as the rest of the vinyl.  It's possible this picture shows an example of original code 62 upholstery although i was unable to confirm from the site I found it on.

Thanks, Jim.

I had a suspicion that was the case. That way there was only one blue-colored dash pad and it was used in both the standard interior 22 code and the deluxe interior 62 code. My suspicion is that the same holds true for the red, aqua, burgundy, emberglo, ivy gold, and palomino dash pads - one color version of each that was used in either the standard or deluxe interior.

I'm also thinking that the pony inserts on the seats were typically a darker coordinating color for many (if not all) of the deluxe interiors. This is based upon the original red and emberglo interiors we've seen. And it sure looks like Tom found a blue interior with darker inserts, but maybe you can confirm that's the case with your interior, Jim? And that it's a factory original detail?

The interior of my "K" car is factory, except for the Rally Pac which is original (the clock don't work) and it was installed about 20 years ago. The wood grain steering wheel I replaced about 15 years ago. The seat material is about the shade of the door paint, medium blue. The car has 78,000 miles on it but has been garaged for the last 30-35 years. Before that it was carport at night and plant parking lot during the day where the original owner used a front window shield and had a carpet over the folded down seat area so it's still in good condition.

Here's a link to  a video for a code 62 interior:



While parts of the car are clearly not original the portion of the video about 2:30 minutes in has a good shot of the seats, and the pony insert sure looks like a different shade of blue than the rest of the seat cover.

Here's two of my interior taken about an hour ago.
The contrast between the two blues of the dash pad and "A" pilar is shown here with the pilar the same as the door trim.
The blue is consistent between the outer material and insert.

Thanks so much, Jim! That's really helpful and curious.

This prompts a question to Jeff:
I know you're always asking about the plant a car was built at and the time frame of its construction - because there are slight differences from one plant to another, or one point in time to another. Might this be a case in point? A different supplier perhaps for Jim's car seats - plant and build date?

Have you tried TCP Global online at:
http://www.tcpglobal.com/aclchip.aspx?image=1966-fordinterior-pg01.jpg

No I have not. I assumed that all the interior would be one colour, I am learning all the time.
I bought some bright red interior paint from NPD and painted the lower part of the steering column in the engine bay.
I am not happy with it, it is quite dark.
I may ask if TCP global can produce the two red mixes shown in the chart.
Thanks all.

The Red #71541 is probably the color you'll need for the doors and steering column. The Dark Red #71566 is likely to be the speaker grille and windshield moulding.

Their site is not easy to get around. The only way I can find Ford interior paint is to follow your link on page 1 of this thread.
I cannot find it direct. I assume 1965 is the same colours as 1966.

I'm learning to never assume anything ;)

Actually the 1965 code for red in my Ditzler Interior Color Code book is: #71315

Pete,
The insert is embossed with running horses by a heat treated stamp. It reflects light different because of that. The only suggestion to cure you reflected vision is some good California wine.
