1967 Chevelle Exterior Paint Codes - (Canada Paint Chart)

[ 1964 ] | [ 1965 ] | [ 1966 ] | [ 1967 ] | [ 1968 ] | [ 1969 ] | [ 1970 ] | [ 1971 ] | [ 1972 ]

It should be noted up front that there are no known numbers for any particular color for a particular series or body style whether it be a solid color or two tone. There are also no known numbers for the different colors of convertible or vinyl tops. So just how many red (or any color) SS396 sport coupes (or any other series) were built is not known and cannot even be calculated. There were no special SS396 paint colors.

Any 1967 Chevelle could be ordered with any color available beyond those typically offered at the time. The means of showing a special paint order on the trim tag may vary from plant to plant. Atlanta used the number "0" to indicate special paint and Fremont used a hyphen character (-) but other plants may have used a different means of depicting special paint. A vinyl of convertible top color would be noted with the appropriate number if applicable just as a normal color selection would be. Special order paint had to be approved by the Fleet & Special Order section of Chevrolet. Special order paint could be any color available by any automotive paint manufacturer except, supposedly, Corvette exclusive colors.

See my GM A-Body Special Paint Information page for more information on special paint colors.

* Correspondence with a fellow enthusiast in September of 2009 about the Medium Blue convertible top has revealed this interesting tidbit of information.
- I tracked down Kimmy at Eletrontop in New York, 800-221-4476. I sent her the photos that you sent me and she immediately said without any hesitation, “OH, that is GM medium blue.” She went on to say that this was discontinued 10 years ago. She said that the original Haartz material number was S71358ZDT. This number was replaced many years ago by Haartz #2750045A (this number was discontinued 10 years ago). She was very knowledgeable and quick to be helpful.

GM of Canada Paint Code Chart

General Motors of Canada, LTD. offered many of the same colors as their U.S. counterpart. Although these colors are listed as 1967 General Motors Passenger Colors on the paint code chart, it's unknown if these additional colors were available on Chevelles as well. Several Canadian colors were identical to U.S. colors, only the sales names were a bit different.

Example of 1967 Canadian Chevelle trim tag; note "9" for enamel paint and JJ (Verde Green Metallic) paint code.

Color vs. Sales Name

Paint color names often differ from the advertised Sales Name. One example might be where the factory paint color is simply RED but the sales name may be BOLERO RED or CRANBERRY RED. Yes, the paint mixing formulas are different between BOLERO RED and CRANBERRY RED but to the factory it was still just red. In a case where their may be two or more hues of a color with sales names such as DEEPWATER BLUE, NANTUCKET BLUE, and MARINA BLUE, the factory colors are simply shown as MEDIUM BLUE, DARK BLUE, or BRIGHT BLUE. A given paint color for a year may have a different sales name for Chevrolet than it does for say Buick, Oldsmobile, or Pontiac. An example of this is the 1969 sales name for Chevrolet of HUGGER/MONACO ORANGE is the same color as the 1969/1970 Pontiac sales name of CAROUSEL RED. Same color, same OEM supplier mixing formula, just different sales names for the two GM divisions.
