NOTE:


Image: Ginger Diamond Brite Glamour Finish200 Thunderbirds were painted with a special "Diamond Brite" Glamour Finish known as Ginger Metallic (shown at left). The paint number for this color is MX821830. Cars with this special paint were provided with a pressure sensitive adhesive sticker mounted to the left front door lock face. Repairs to this special finish were to be made with air dry enamel paint, per the door sticker. Only one of these specially-painted cars is known to still exist today.
