    I went to look up my color code so I can get touch-up paint that's the right color (some shade of red), and I realized my 1995 Mustang GT Convertible doesn't have a VCL! Either that, or it's extremelely well hidden... Anybody know if there's a way to lookup an original VCL by using the VIN or something?

    or bright red (rio red) like this

    The darker is called laser red and the paint code is E9. I'm not sure what the rio red code is.

    You don't have the sticker in the drivers side door jamb?

    I think it's the bright red color, but I'm more concerned now with the implications of not having that label... I'm pretty sure that my car had some body work done (on the cheap) by one of the previous owners, so maybe they replaced the door panel and didn't put a new sticker on or something... Does it really matter that I'm missing that sticker?

    There are vin numbers all over the car. Check to see if they are matching. (trunk, hood, door, etc.)

    No that sticker just makes life easy when you want to find out certain things about your car, like what gears you had, paint code etc etc...you can just take you vin # to the local Ford and they will run it and tell you your paint code since you aren't 100% sure what red it is...they might also be able to order you a new sticker for the door.
