Paint Color Code Confusion...Giving me a headache...
I simply want to paint my car some color of orange, it should not be this difficult to difficult to de-mystify...Here it goes, I hope you can follow as I have lost my way.
Hugger Orange is actually a Camaro color not a Chevelle color and is 1970 GM color code 65. This color is actually a duller orange I believe.
Monaco Orange is 1970 GM paint code 72 which I believe is a brighter more red orange. Yet I have seen people refer to Hugger Orange as paint code 72 and say it is the same color as paint code 65...
I called a paint store in Wisconsin, Tower paints (on the advise of someone from this forum, thanks!) to get a couple of rattle cans of two paint colors and this is where I get really confused and get conflicting information not only from this forum but from Tower paints who have been doing this for a long time and I would thing know there stuff so here it goes.
Hugger Orange is 1970 GM paint code 65 period in Tower paints view.
I asked what is paint code 72 in the book for 1970 GM paint codes and Towers response was paint code 72 is the exact same make-up as GM paint code 974 which is Monza Red..Monza Red is a Corvette color.
So here is my question as I am trying to paint my 1970 Chevelle some kind of orange or orange red.
Is indeed code 65 Hugger Orange and not code 72?
Is paint code 72 Monaco Orange and is it a red orange that is the same as paint code 974 Monza Red.
What paint code and or color is the correct one for 1970 Chevelle's?
Thanks for the help and I hope I did not open up a can of worms....
