    Hey, I've noticed there are 2 codes for oxford white, 87-89 is 9L and 90-92 is YO. I'm thinking about painting my car Oxford White.

    Is there any difference in color between these 2 codes?

    Thanks!

    According to the current paint manufactured yes. Did ford have a slight ingredient difference between years? I have no idea but I doubt it.

    The code for Oxford white is 9L in 87-89. It did change to a slightly brighter white later which is I guess YO.

    That's what I thought too. But current manufacturers list both codes as the same for current available paint. Guess you Have to paint the whole thing, no touchups
