Ford custom color paint codes

These are the paint codes for two of Sportsmobile's custom colors.

These codes were given to me by Jay Minto (formerly fleet sales at
S & C Ford in San Francisco (where SMB-West buys the vans)).

These codes were read back twice for accuracy but no other warranty
is expressed or implied.

Manufacturer "CocaCola Red"

BASF 83057
PPG/Ditzer 72986
DuPont G8833
Sherwin Williams 36913
Akzo/Sikkens 3203


Manufacturer "Baja Tan"

BASF 76830
PPG/Ditzer 23003
DuPont 6742
Sherwin Williams 54955
Akzo/Sikkens 7012

Procedure:

a) Go to a Ford dealer who runs a body shop or to any body shop.
b) State that your are ordering a Ford custom color and show them
the manufactures choices for your color.
c) Jay seemed to think that 1 quart is the minimum order.
d) See if you can get either small empty bottles or throw away
paint applicators thrown in as part of the deal.

Re: Ford custom color paint codes

Something else very handy for color matching are "color maps" which are typically available at any paint shop or body shop supplier. All paint manufacturers have them available, they can't be tough to locate. Here's one showing unrelated colors but maybe demonstrates how they can be helpful:



By laying one of these sheets over an existing color something very, very close to the original color can be determined and mixed for the desired end result.

Keep in mind the above photo is for demonstration only---the better color maps will have colors broken out in separate sections, variations showing different aspects of a color very completely. "Red" can go from a blood red color to almost pink and those would be adequately represented.

What's slick about that is the paint code accompanies any one color, the OEM use of such a color could be tracked with that code.

Anyway maybe more than most want to know about paint colors and how to choose them.
