I'm in the process of a full restoration to the orginal car of an all numbers matching 71 Mach 1. Two exceptions to matching are the interior and the paint.

As you can see the paint code is 3077-A. I know the paint color but what I'm not sure about is the striping. How do I know if its silver or black?

The interior code is 5B Blue Ciarion Knit/Corinthian Vinyl Bucket Seats. Confusion is when looking on mustangs unlimited to what color of blue. There are light, med and dark blue on many of the interior items.

I'm partial to Silver stripping and dark blue interior but also want all original on the car as specified by the Marti report.

Any assitance on how I can find this out would be great. Pictures would be even better.

Thanks, Ed

G'day my 72 Mach1 has the paint code 3J or 3077-A, which is listed on the Marti report as Bright Blue Metallic, my interior is listed as, GB = Blue Sebring Knit/Corinthian Vinly Bucket Seats. Here a few pics for you..

I can not confirm from any of my references. However, every one I saw when they were new had argent stripes (which I think look great). Maybe BT has something definitive. Chuck

EVERYTHING that I have seen infers that "Argent" was the color of the stripes on Blue 1971 Mach 1s and Boss 351s.

BT

Do the RIGHT thing.

Go argent all the way. Don't think I've seen our blue with black stripes.

do you have an original rear spoiler? That colour should be matching?
