Paint Codes


Since the site I used long ago to find the codes disappeared, and the current source may befall the same fate (though not likely, since TriFive.com has real staying power), I thought I would list all the Canadian Chevy paint codes here (keep in mind, replace the first "1" with a "2" to get the corresponding Canadian Pontiac paint code you see on your cowl tag):

Should this, if it isn't already, be in our archives?

When I did a search here years ago, all I found was a link to a website that no longer exists ... but if I have duplicated what is already here somewhere, please go ahead and delete this all.

PAINTREF.COM is an interesting resource for paint colors and codes.

 Sadly, like all too many paint code listings, they do not include Canadian-built vehicles

If you search around enough on the internet, you can find all the paint codes from the various paint companies at the time for your paint colour. You can even manage to find paint chip charts that you can print off in colour. I have for my car. I've also bought some original (Canadian) paint chip charts off eBay for reasonable prices. You just have to do a little digging around, and they are out there.
