Correct 1968 Highland Green paint

I'm about to have my 68 re-painted. It is currently a shade of highland green, but not anything near the correct color. The guy that had it before me thought it needed some pearl in the paint and well..........I'm not a fan, but it is an originally highland green car and I want the correct highland green. Can some of you please chime in here and help me out. Maybe post some pics of your cars along with the brand of paint and paint codes you used.........single stage paint or clearcoat. Thanks guys. I appreciate it. I'm meeting with one more paint guy tomorrow before I decide who I'm going to let paint my car.

I'm sure there are more knowledgeable and experienced Bullittheads to answer this question, but this link might be helpful. This site has the paint code listed as "R". This one has two listings, both "R" and "M3067A ".

Send a PM to Bullittgreen (Kevin)

His car is a lighter shade of the new HG that is closer to the original color. It is extremely nice.

Rob,

The Ford part/code number for Highland Green Metallic in 1968 was 3067-A. ("R" on the Door Data Plate)

The Paint Codes of other manufacturers for Ford 3067-A is as follows:

Ditzler/PPG: 43644
Dupont: 4869
RM: A1946

I hope this information helps!

This might help, Rob. http://www.mercurystuff.com/1968_ford_colors.php

The '68 Highland Green for DITZLER is #43644.

I think this shot shows the actual color best...



Good luck!

Does anyone have the formula for the original Highland Green? I will be starting my 67 fastbask Bullitt conversion soon and would like to have the original Highland Green if at possible.

Paint Code Update. The paint codes for 1968 Highland Green discussed in previous posts may now be obsolete in some States. The reason, the EPA! In California, where I live, solvent (VOC) based automotive paints are no longer legal to sell or apply. Water-born paint became the standard as of January 2009. The result, auto paint suppliers in California can no longer translate the "old" paint codes into a water-born formula. I have contacted Dupont via their website to inquire. If and when I get an answer and/or a new paint code for 1968 Highland Green, I'll will post the info.

I know this is a very old thread but iím curious how the Highland Green compares over the different years?

From this thread my understanding is that the 1968 Highland Green might look different than the 2001/2008 versions. Additionally is 2019 a different mix as well?

Of course itís hard to judge by pictures so Iím wondering if anyone has seen a 1968 next to a 2001, 2008, 2019 in person? If so, how lucky you are!
