    According to the Ford Division '85 Fleet Buyer's Guide and the Ford Color & Trim Selections book, there were two colors for the trunk/hatch decal.

    Of the seven exterior paint colors available on the GT convertible and GT hatchback (1B, 1C, 1E, 2A, 2R, 3V, and 9L), only the 1C and 9L exterior colors got the Medium Charcoal rear decal. All other exterior colors got the Dark Charcoal decal.

    If your car is the one in your avatar picture, you are also missing the GT decal that goes over the hood blackout. Not that it is an issue....just noticed that in your picture. Same color as what goes on the deck-lid.

    Hood decal and rear decal are not the same color in 1985 for 1C paint.

    1985 1C = Silver Metallic hood, Medium Charcoal rear
    1985 9L = Dark Charcoal hood, Medium Charcoal rear
    1985 1B, 1E, 2A, 2R, 3V = Dark Charcoal hood, Dark Charcoal rear

    1986 1C = Silver Metallic hood, Silver Metallic rear
    1986 1D, 4E, 9L = Dark Charcoal hood, Silver Metallic rear
    1986 1E, 2A, 2R, 3J = Dark Charcoal hood, Dark Charcoal rear

    First post in ages.
    There only seems to be two part numbers for the rear decal, and they're the same for both 1985 and 1986:
    E5ZZ6142528A (silver)
    E5ZZ6142528C (dark charcoal)

    Questions:
    1. Is there an extant part number for the medium charcoal one?
    2. Is it possible that a 9L car could have come from the factory with a charcoal decal on the rear deck? Mine is long since worn away, but I don't recall thinking that it looked silver when new.

    Thanks,
    Scott

    The hood and decklid decal are both the same color on my black 1985 GT....silver. That goes against what is posted above, but I know it is original. Could be just another example of manufacturing inconsistencies.
