Want find out original color on my 88 coupe?

I want to find out the original color on my new project. How can I find out? It's gray now but before that it was green and I even see white and black under all that.

You could probably get a Marti report on your car. It would tell you the original color to the car.

Look on the end of your driver side door and you'll see a vehicle safety certification label stuck to the door.Open the link below and look at the label shown and use it to locate your exterior paint code.Its listed on #1 position. In other words,find the #1 position on your label and it will have one or more letters/numbers beside or directly above where it says exterior paint colors or ex....Get the letters/numbers from your label then match them up to the Ford paint code chart in the 2nd link below & you'll know what the original color was.Look under where it says code on the paint chart & match your letter/numbers to the matching one shown.The color is listed to the left of the code on the paint chart....Hope this helps
