Fiesta Paint Codes

Browse the list of paint options for the Mk1 and Mk2 to find your Fiestas original colour.

Mk1 Fiesta VIN plate

The colour code for your car can be found on the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) plate which is attached to the front slam panel, usually on the drivers side. On left-hand drive cars it was sometimes attached to the opposite side (their drivers) or to the bulkhead. The illustrations included on this page show where the paint code is stamped on the VIN plate for both Mk1 and Mk2 Cars, which had slightly different styles of vin plate.

Fiesta VIN plate

The codes are made up of a character representing the colour for that year and a second number which in theory denotes the year. e.g A4 would represent colour A for that year and the 4 would signify a 1984 car. Unfortunately this isnt a perfect system, many cars have a number that doesnt correspond to the year of manufacture at all, an A9 code which should signify a Black 1989 car can sometimes appear on a 1985 car for example.

Please note that many of the codes included in this info table were submitted by owners and have not been independently verified, always check with a Ford dealer before ordering paint based on this information. If you can add to the info displayed please email the webmaster at info@projectbobcat.com

Although rare to find in-tact, cars appear to have also had a sticker inside the boot, usually just below the boot latch plate. This sticker stated the colour name, full Ford part number for the colour (starting XSC..), and finally the paint manufacturer. Paint suppliers at the time included Sikkens, Dr.Kurt Herberts and Bollig & Kemper.
