Ok, I got this really funny looking color on my 93lx v8 5.0 t-bird. Everyone in the local area has loved making fun of her so far, till I whip on their imported butt :D
Well, anyways, the paint is like a pinkish/reddish/purplish/pearl color. I have only seen it once on another t-bird and it was the same year as mine, and it was in jersey(same place I bought my car). Its an odd color. If its dark out, the car is red, if its bright daylight, shes pink, and if there is a neon light on it, like if in a parking lot or in a late night car wash, she turns purple. Its confusing when trying to dry it in different lights and it changes colors all over the place. Has anyone ever seen this color before? Does anyone have an pics of them this color. Whats it called? Or maybe is it just sun bleached to the point it made the paint do this? Heres a pic, she looks red here though.

Pink Phantom...LOL

Look in the exterior tec articles, you can look on your doorjamb sticker and check to see what paint you have, assuming it hasn't been painted.

I know how you feel, my 93 is caymen pearl or something like that, in the day time it looks teal, but the night it looks a real dark blue.

mine will go from green to black depending on what color is around it, and how bright it is.

Bob, your color is called Sunfire Red. I saw a new '93 SC at the Chicago Auto show in '92 painted that color, I was looking for it when I bought my '93 in March of 93. It is not in the brochures, and my salesman at the time did not know about it either. It is a pretty rare color in '93 as far as I know...

The offered the color on the Escort as well, although I don't know what years...HTH

Ohh good call, I've seen that color on an Escort before. I have never heard of that color on an MN12, that's pretty cool.

I think it's funny that the ricers make fun of your paint color...when most of them dream of a pink or yellow or bright as hell blue paint job for their cars. Id rather drive a pink car than one with a 4 ft tall peice of pointless metal (spoiler).

Later,

My first MN12 was originally Dark Titanium, but I paid to have a full color change done to that one. The official name is "Sunrise Red Clearcoat Metallic". It was $297 a gallon back in 1994. I always did like it. It shifts from red to purple to nearly lilac depending on the light.

yeah

thats exactly what the car does. It switches around to all of those. My car is a 93 though. How did a 95...94 paint end up stock on a 93? I guess the world may never know.

Thats the name of that color. I have been trying to remember what it was called. Back in 93, I about bought a T-bird with that color on it, but passed because it had a white leather interior. If I rememeber correctly the dealer told me that color was a limited number special run on the T-birds.

The color you're talking about is called sunrise red pearl, code fc. I know because my 93 t-bird lx is that color. I repainted is 2 months ago(same color) It has red, orangetints with blue and violet pearls. It was one of Fords attempts at a flop type color. This color was only offered a couple of years on mostly Escorts and pickups. As far as I've researched, it was offered on the T-Bird one year only, 93.
