A Mostly British Obsession


1968 Ford F250

My “new” truck–a wonderful time capsule, and I like the copper color more every time I see it. “Goldie” is a 1968 F250 Camper Special, very similar to my previous one, except that this machine has led a quiet, well-cared-for life, and it shows. The interior is immaculate and while the paint has seen better days, it’s still reasonable considering it is 38 years old!

    I just purchased a 69 Ford F250 that looks alot like one of your past indescretions. I am planning on restoring it (partly at least) with my son.
    If you’ve got any good links to share concerning restoring one of these old hulks, I would apreciate it.


    PS – I also have a 78 Triumph Spitfire 1500 :)

    I have a 68 F250 camper special as well. Love the color. What is the color code and name of color? Let me know, anybody.

  7. Morgan

    If any one know the color name and code of “Goldie” please contact me at rmorgan3164@insightbb.com. I am restoring my 68 and would love to change my avocado green to that copper-gold color.
    Thanks again,

    The color was custom ordered–I think it was a Mustang color called “Aztec Gold”.

    Thank you so very much for the information on the Aztec Gold color. By the way, although I live in Louisville Ky, I am born and raised in SF Calif. I learned how to fly fish in the east lake area near the Center For Wooden Boats in the early 1990’s. The 68 f250 I own is a Calif truck and I am the second owner. Do you have the paint code??? If so please send it to me. Thanks again, Morgan
