Black Odense Grain Full Vinyl Roof (code GA)
Above: Black Odense Grain Full Vinyl Roof (code GA) shown with Silver Moonroof. Original documents indicate that the full vinyl roof was required when a Power Sunroof or Power Moonroof was ordered, however there are documented examples, although rare, of cars with the half vinyl roof and a Sunroof or Moonroof. (The full vinyl roof was not a requirement on the Continental Mark IV, which used the same basic body as the T-bird.)
VINYL ROOF TYPE/COLOR CODE
Two digit codes are used for 1976. The first digit denotes type of roof; the second is the roof color code. For instance, code GA would indicate an Odense grain full vinyl roof in Black.

Roof Type Code
G Odense full vinyl roof (standard, and required with
     any Sunroof or Moonroof installation)
H Odense half vinyl roof (Bordeaux and Lipstick Luxury Groups only)
L Normande full vinyl roof (only available in Creme
     color "V")
N Odense half vinyl roof (Creme and Gold Luxury Group only)

Roof Color Code
A Black
B Blue
C Copper (Copper Decor Group only)
D Dark Red
N Bright Red (Lipstick Luxury Group only)
P Silver
R Dark Jade
T Brown
V Creme
W White
Y Gold

Note: Components as listed in the various trim codes above include instrument panel, steering wheel and column, carpeting, and seat belts, which provide contrast to the primary interior color and compliment the exterior paint finish.
