Lightbulb Code 43 Citrus Green

I found this old post but could not add to it so here is something to supplement it:

https://www.chevelles.com/forums/newr...treply&t=56499

I know that this is an old post but here is a car just finished in it's original code 43 with the GM colour swatch. It's going in the World of Wheels in Calgary in February.

Just thought I would add this for the Teams reference.

Re: Code 43 Citrus Green

It's nice to see a "different" color on a Chevelle. I still prefer it on a Camaro.

Thanks for sharing.

Not too many as it was a Canadian deal only for 1970.

Re: Code 43 Citrus Green

That must be an LS5 car then, cause the chart says not available with the LS6....

Nice color tho.

I'm thinking theres a guy here from Texas with a Camaro Gold 70 LS6, he tracked it down to a dealer that ordered a few in (IIRC) Hugger Orange, Citrus Green, and Camaro Gold....

Authentication and pre-purchase inspection service still available. PM me for more information.

Of course, I could be totally wrong too
