Default Well, going to look at a 60 TBird on Sat

According the Automotive Mileposts website, the 1960 exterior color code L was 1276 Gold Metallic and Gold Dust, for the Sales Name... According to the VTCI Official Factory Specifications (OFS) for Squarebirds, the 1960 Squarebird did not have a Paint Code L... per 7.2.1... It is NOT on the list...

It must have been a special order then, since it is listed in one of my thunderbird books, but not the other
Good eye Ray!

Yes, Cathie is right! It was a Special Order and a Lincoln paint color. I meant to put that in the post, but I see I forgot to do so.

Of all the color codes I have in my '60 database I only had one with a code of "L" and it was noted as having a blue exterior. Going back to it showed it was originally Gold Dust Metallic. I did list several Lincoln special-order colors in the '58-'60 OFS but this one got past me, in part because I didn't have an "L"-coded car in the database in 2005 when the OFS was being edited. In fact in the March-April '10 VTCI Thunderbird Scoop I listed colors/percentages, with the single aforementioned "L" that was ID'd as blue. I'll be revising this listing and having a revised version posted on VTCI's website some time in the next few weeks (have to do this anyway since the '59 interior info didn't get printed in the article). Needless to say I also now need to get the OFS pages updated for this and some other colors I've documented since 2005.

the 57 had an L code of Azure Blue and the 59 has Diamond Blue
the other years, 58 and 60 they dropped the L entirely, comes back out on the 61 as Sahara Rose...maybe it was an odd year thing with Ford...?

Okay here is the data plate

63a u 56 16e 4 3

So the decoder shows it as a Rose Glow Met exterior with a black and white interior.

The car has a full extra set of door panels, tail lights, doors, deck lid, back glass.

......
......

They are supposed to drop the car off in my back yard at some point tomorrow.

I guess they were in trouble with the home owners assoc and needed it gone asap....

So I picked it up for $600.

Am a bit well, unsure about what I did.....

So now look my list of cars.....

58, 59, 60, 64, 65 and 65 TBird

68 olds cutlass s and the 00 camaro ss, both verts.

YIKES
