Paint Color Code(s)

The paint code generally consists of either two pair of 2-digit numbers or a 2-digit number and a letter. The first 2-digit number designates the lower body color and the second 2-digit number designates the upper body color. In the case of a convertible or a Chevelle with a vinyl top, the second 2-digit number is replaced with a letter to indicate the color of the top.

The 'color' listed is the Chevrolet sales name and may vary with the same color for a Canadian Chevelle. Internally Chevrolet used simple names like light blue, dark blue, red, etc.
