Default Inerior PPG color number


Anyone know the correct PPG or Ford color number for interior for a 58 T-bird, or where to find it?
The interior code is XA (blue and blue tweed). I guess the blue color is the same as interior code XE (blue and white).

I don't believe the interior paint codes are listed anywhere unless they happen to be in one of the old Ford upholstery books. It's best just to take a sample of your interior to your paint supplier and have it mixed.

I have a Dupont color chip folder for 1960 Ford Motor Company and it has the Dupont formulas for the interior colors. That would lead me to believe that someone with the chips for the 1958 Ford Motor Company would have what you're looking for.

Thanks all for your response.

I also got a friend that is a sand blaster and hobby painter. He also think a PPG code for the interior exist, but it seems hard to find. I guess the solution is to bring some part from the interior to the paint shop for scanning. It also a problem that the color on the interior also have changed over time. But I guess it's best to bring with me some of the vinyl parts, they seems not to have changed so much as the metal details.

Default XA and XE not the same blue color tone

The interior color code XA (blue, blue tweed and white) and XE (blue and white) do not use the same blue color tone. I asked a lot of people (suppliers) regarding this before i ordered and they all meant it was the same. As you can see on the pictures bellow, the blu tone is not the same. The piece on the right picture is from behind the back plate on the drivers seat, and have never been exposed for ligth. I have also checked the backside of different other interior pieces and they all have the same color as the small piece and the door cover cover.

So if any other out there have the color code XA, this blue color seams to be rare and it's almost impossible to find interior with correct color.

Do anyone have any experience in painting vinyl? Is it possible, and will it look good?
