Kevin Marti can make you a new door tag based on the L-M production database. I'm not familiar with the terms "tire tags", so can't answer that one.

No AC in my car and doesn't look like there was.

Number 9 is a 1970 color code for 'Yellow'. 9 was on his buck tag, in the position where the exterior color would be noted.

None of my books show a 9 color code in 1970.

Interesting... It is not listed in the 1970 Mercury Product Data Book. (Dealership binder) and it is not listed in the The Mustang and Cougar Tag Book. Code 9 was listed as Bright Yellow in 1969. Odd that Kevin Marti would not have it in the tag book...

Yeshe car was/is Yellow..
The previous owner had the car painted Springtime Yellow (Mustang color, 12yrs ago)
But there is a spot near some trim that this paint has chipped off showing the original Yellow color.

I did find out what the Vehicle Certification Label is..from Marti site.

These colors look close..
