Classic copper - paint code #67

1971 Chevelle SS- 454 ci, 4 speed, yellow w/ black int. (Canadian built)



The trouble with trouble is that it always starts out as fun!

Re: 71 Chevelle Color

If you click on the link to the chevelle stuff page and the scroll down the colors and click on the color name, it brings up a pic of the car in that particular color, The classic copper car is identical.
(But I do agree that it looks kinda like burnt orange until you see the pic!)

Re: 71 Chevelle Color

Looks very close to the color of my '71, which is code 62 - Burnt Orange.
I thought mine was Classic Copper when I first bought it, but verified the trim tag as Code 62. The colors are very similar, but in full sun the Orange shows true.




1971 Chevelle Malibu
383ci - 2004R - 3.73
Code 62 - Burnt Orange
