Question about 1984 Chevrolet El Camino
Posted by Anonymous on
The paint code is on the trim tag attached to the driver's side firewall. A trim tag, lists original interior trim, exterior color, build date and other fisher body info. The paint code is a two digit code on the right side second row. If you have two codes, the car was a two tone car. If you go to http://www.paintscratch.com/ you can enter the year make and model of the car and see all the avilable colors that are original for that vehicle.
The paint code for all Chevy cars and trucks are located on the service parts identification sticker. While the sticker is moved around from year to year, it still looks like the ones below. Most labels are white paper sticker, while more moderns ones are a silver label. While most paint codes in our database start out with a "WA", most cars and trucks will start out with a "BC/CC U". BC/CC stands for basecoat/clearcoat, and the U stands for upper or body color.
Two Tone Models: A two toned car will have a "U" followed by the four digit color code for the body color, and an "L" followed by a four digit color code for the lower color or the bumper color.
I believe it should be 78U. Which is maroon metallic.
Hope helps (remember rated this).
