    #4 Pastel Chamois is code 6P . PPG paint number 2790. #11 Dark Cordovan code is 8N , PPG paint number 2920. The 6P and 8N should be on your left door post decal, if the decal is still there. These numbers are from my paint book at the body shop.

    Just regular white. Quick google on it reveals PPG 2684 but I’m sure 1979FRGT will have the definitive answer from his paint book.

    Like the Bruin says the PPG code is 2684. I can see why he mistook the chamois color for the white. The white on the Ford sales book looks like Chevy truck white. My Ranchero was factory painted 9D but when I repainted it I switched it to 2003 Ford Ceramic White Pearl , same shade of white but with the metallic sparkle. Unless the light is shining on it , it looks like the original polar white.
