There should be a interior paint code on the sticker on the drivers door. Take that in to you local Ford dealer and they should be able to set you up. You could also get it from one of the sponsors of the site such as Dfuser or ITP but the freight would kill ya for a cheap item like that.

Try the pod dealer for a paint. If not, 3 choices.
1. Dealer. Obsolete? next.
2.Take an interior piece such as ash tray, fuse cover etc. to an auto paint dealer. Scan and match if the door code isn't listed. Bad news, you need a gun or prevail sprayer for interior dyes and paints. Choose paint for plastic if offered.
Thats the deal on exact match if the dealer can't order it any longer. Other choice is a flex paint for plastics in a can, not an exact match. Now you know why the pod isn't offered painted.
