Note: Ford referred to the color white (actually an off-white) as Parchment for its 1967 models; the cloth seat inserts in trim code 8U listed above were not listed as another color, only referred to as Parchment. They are, however, slightly darker than the vinyl bolsters, and seem to darken considerably with age.

*We have also observed the Parchment-colored bolsters with a Black cloth insert. We believe this was added after the start of production, and subsequently, most literature and manuals do not reflect this trim code.

Note: 1967 would be the low point for the availability of leather as a trim option on the T-Bird. In 1966, leather was available in 4 colors, and in 1968 and 1969 it would be available in 2 colors. By 1970, leather was available in 4 shades for two door models, and 3 shades for the four door cars. It's not clear why this happened, other than the consideration that most of the competition at the time didn't offer leather as an option at all, so perhaps Ford didn't deem it necessary to go to the trouble to provide it at the time.
VINYL ROOF COLORS 1967 Ford Thunderbird Landau vinyl roof colors (black, dark blue, brown, and parchment)
Levant Grain Vinyl Roof Color samples are shown above in Black, Dark Blue, Brown (Dark), and Parchment.
ROOF COLOR/CODE

A Black (Available with all interior and
     exterior color combinations)

U Parchment (White) (Available with all interior
     and exterior color combinations)

B Blue (Dark) (Available only with Blue exterior
     and/or interior colors)

F Brown (Dark) (Available only with Parchment interiors,
     and with Raven Black, Beige Mist Metallic,
     Wimbledon White, Burnt Amber, Vintage Burgundy*,
     or Phoenician Yellow exterior colors.)


*This combination by Special Order only, shipped as "Off Standard" from the factory. 11 cars were so ordered, 4 with Black interiors, 4 with Parchment interiors, and 3 with Saddle interiors. Two of them were modified by the dealer, and had Black vinyl roofs installed prior to delivery, and one had a Parchment vinyl roof installed, also prior to delivery.

Note: A few 1967 Thunderbirds have been documented with a Light Brown Vinyl Roof, identical to the color named "Parchment" used in 1966, which is somewhat confusing as Ford named the off-white vinyl color "Parchment" as well for 1967. It is believed these cars were specially ordered with this Light Brown vinyl, and it was not a regular production option.
Note: Ford started using a new trim code system in 1967, which utilized numbers as well as letters to identify trim codes. For instance, 2A can be identified as 2=vinyl bucket seats; A=black. Since the reclining seats in 1967 had integral headrests, a different code would be needed to identify that trim option. i.e., 4A would be 4=cloth and vinyl with headrest; A=black. The number 4 would normally indicate vinyl bench seats, which of course were not available on the 1967 Thunderbirds.

In some instances, the normal two digit trim code is followed by an additional letter; this denotes an accent color was used. On the 1967 Thunderbirds, this color was normally black, which was indicated by an additional "A" in the code, i.e., 2UA, which decodes as 2=vinyl bucket seats/no headrest, U=parchment, and A=black appointments (instrument panel pad, carpeting, etc.)
