++Thunderbird color; by special order only

A few of the color names changed from 1964, even though the paint code and formula did not. For instance, Silver Blue became Madison Gray; Regal Turquoise became Teal; and Nocturn Blue became Nocturne Blue, although this last one could be a misprint in either the 1964 or 1965 brochure. The paint chip chart shows "Nocturne."
