vin code help 67 mustang

1 have a 67 stang the exterior color code is "N" according to the 67 ford
shop manual this was not an available color. according to the ford master
parts catalog code "N" is platinum except for bronco. The 68 ford shop
manual and the various i.d. decoder books list this color as "diamond blue"
the car appear to be a burnt orange color even in the overspray areas inside
the trunk and behind the door hinges. I know that ford did some strange
things with the warranty "vin" tags on the door, can anyone shed any info on
this discrepency

There was no N in 1964.5, 1965, or 1966. In 1967 Mustang exterior
code N is officially called "Diamond Blue" (same as 1968). There was
no N in 1969. In 1970 and 1971 it became Pastel Blue. No N in 1972. In
1973 it became Medium Aqua

In 1967, V was Burnt Amber.

In 1966, 1967, 1971, 1972, and 1973, there was a designation of
"SPECIAL" which covered several different colors (many metallic). None
of those really comes close to being "Burnt Amber" or Burnt Orange.

As I recall, they were still dipping them in 1967, so the original
color should show up in a number of different locations.
