PostSubject: Odd color for Mach 1   Wed 9 Jan - 1:21

I just received my Ford 999 letter/report and it states that my 1970 Mach 1 is indeed that but the original exterior color was "Chestnut Metallic." although I don't think, or didn't see that this color was ever available in 1970. I tend to think that they made a mistake. The car is painted "Calypso Coral" and it is the color code listed on the door sticker. (I know, this could possibly be fabricated), but because of the lack of color listing I think whoever archived the report may have erred. What do you guys think?

Do already have a Martireport ?
That could verify it.

PostSubject: Thanks Ray...one more question......   Tue 22 Jan - 0:08

Ok,

Now that I know it was available as a standard color, would you know if it was available for a Mach 1? My vehicle was definately a Mach 1 so if it was originally a Y color car then it may be an even rarer color combination as I have never seen one like that. I intend on obtaining a Marti Report as well.

Thanks again Ray,

Gil

Hi!

Yes Chestnut Metallic color is available for Mach1 and a total of 339 Mach1 was produced this color.

Is a rare color and very nice too.

Please send me a copy of your report. Thanks!

Ray

PostSubject: It is confirmed!   Sun 27 Jan - 21:35

I received a Marti Report yesterday on my car and it is confirmed that it was originally Chestnut Metallic in color. This is bitter sweet for me as I like Calypso Coral and now know that the data sticker was reproduced to match the color it was painted. The only way I guess I can check the VIN against the car to be sure it is the original is to check the top of the inner fender apron for the numbers. However, the color is in fact rarer and the report states that there were only 143 Mach 1's with this color/trim combination. Yes, Ray, I will have to take a pic of the Report and send it to you to get officially registered and I suppose if I get around to painting it I will have to return it to its original Chestnut Metallic color.

Thanks again, guys

Gil
