X2 the Vin Tag or its sometimes labeled as a Warranty Tag it will be revetted to the drivers side door or on the door jamb and it will have the info you need. Look for the color number this can then be decoded to get you the original factory color let us know if you need help with decoding that number. Also note that the trim number will decode to tell you what upholstery color the car originally had. Best of luck on your 1963 Futura restoration. :thumbup: :nod:
