SILVER/LIPSTICK DECOR GROUP

1977 Ford Thunderbird with Silver/Lipstick Decor Group

This feature package was introduced mid-year, as a Spring sales incentive. It featured Silver Metallic (shown below) or Lipstick Red (shown above) body color paint, with a Silver or Lipstick Red Valino grain vinyl roof. A choice of Light Silver Metallic or Light Red accent striping was available to contrast with the paint color. Other than the accent stripes, the two colors could be mixed or matched in any combination desired.

Inside, the Interior Decor Group option was included with Dove Grey vinyl seating in a choice of split bench or bucket seats. The seats featured Lipstick Red accent straps and welting. The door panels, quarter panel trim, and headliner were Dove Grey, and the carpeting, seat belts, instrument panel, steering column, and steering wheel were Lipstick Red.

Note: Two shades of Red were offered for interiors in 1977. Lipstick Red is a vibrant, bright shade of Red, while the other is a darker shade. Both are shown below for your comparison.

Thanks to Michael Imaoka for his assistance with the Silver/Lipstick Decor Option interiors and for providing additional research on other trim codes.


VINYL ROOF

1977 Thunderbird vinyl roof codes consist of two digits. The first digit is a letter identifying the type of vinyl roof. All 1977 Thunderbirds use "Y" as the first digit, which designates Valino Grain vinyl material, 1/2 vinyl roof style.
