Re: How to Get a Sample of 1970 Code 78 Black Cherry Paint?
Chicken Coupe - thanks for helping clear up the confused paint code. Having matching color chevelle/el caminos would be cool, but I need some variety in the garage. I was only wrong for two decades on this.
Dean - Guess we all need to change the colors from time to time to freshen things up. Now way to account for the lighting, but the "before" picture looks redder than cranberry, but there are many variables in what a color looks like in any given shot. The new shade of black cherry looks great too.
A color chart I have shows code 75 cranberry being a little darker in '71 than in '70. Code 78 changed from black cherry metallic to Rosewood metallic, but looks the same based only on the samples.
Anyone else noticed a difference between 1971 code 75 cranberry and 1970 code 75 cranberry?
