I have a 1995 SC paint code ZU which the brochure says is Silver Blue Mist. The Letter I got from Ford when I sent in my VIN and Data info says it is Graphite Night Mist Clearcoat. It clearly does not look like Graphite anything. It has that light blue color that kind of changes to light purple in the sunlight.

Thoughts?

I think those are both names for the same paint used on an assortment of Ford/Mercury for 1995/96 - see http://paintref.com/cgi-bin/colorcodedisplay.cgi?code=ZU&manuf=Ford&rows=50

...but when used on the Thunderbird, the name was Silver Blue Mist.

Not sure why the VIN Data info Ford sent defaulted to GNM, tho.
