OBS Factory Purple Paint

Do any of you OBS guys remember Ford putting factory dark purple paint on the OBS trucks? Aside from Powerstrokes, i'm also a big fan of the 4.9 inline 6...I found a nice '95 reg cab long bed 4x4 with the inline 6 that i'm looking to buy as a beater, but it's purple. The door jams, inside the gas cap, I even pulled down the headliner...it's all purple and looks like it was factory. Anyone remember this color as an option?

Yep. I had a girlfriend in high school that had a purple F250. I've also seen it on a few 2 tone trucks, but its not very common.

buddy of mine back at camp lejeune had one, but he hated when you called his truck purple, it was a reg cab idi 94 iirc, and he always corrected me with "it's saphire blue, NOT PURPLE"

Yes, they are excellent engines. I currently own a 2wd '93 inline 6 with 245k miles that runs great, but i've been looking for a 4x4 inline 6 for a while. 4x4 inline 6 F-150s are very hard to find in Florida...I just wish it was ANY other color.
