1970 Desert Sand

Looking for the paint color name for Desert Sand in 1970. There were Chevelle sales names such as Cranberry Red, Forest Green, Fathom Blue, etc. but paint names shown on Atlanta buildsheets were simply RED, DARK GREEN, DARK BLUE, etc. Of all the colors, Desert Sand (code 63) is the only one I don't have a common name for.

Anyone with a 70 Atlanta buildsheet that could look in the last column of block 107 and get me the name it'd be appreciated (only Atlanta listed colors this way).

Secondary, if anyone has any plant's window sticker with Desert Sand coded paint, the 3-digit number for Desert Sand (in the RPO code column) would also be appreciated. These should be shown on any plant's window sticker.

Appreciate the help!

Have you seen the LS5 70 desert sand with white stripe and top on ebay Dale. Its a nice looking car. It has the build sheet but its a Kansas City car. I looked at the Atlanta build sheets pics I have collected and all I found 58 dark gold and 55 med gold so my guess would be Atlanta listed it as 63 light gold. And I bet from looking at window stickers they listed it as desert sand. I'll stay on the look out and if I find anything I'll send it your way.
