I have a '70 Elky and it has a vinyl top and I believe that it had two tone green and silver paint (below rocker trim) because I scraped the paint off down there and found some silver and some silver on the "shelf" of the rocker panel that you see when the dor is opened. The cowl tag reads: 45 GPNT
I would think if it was tow tone the number would be between the 45 and G but it's not. Would I be able to find it on the build sheet? Thanks....Shawn

The way Chevrolet lists the silver is, (This is taken from an El Camino packet I got from GM when I ordered my restoration packet) this is for a '72 but I believe it to be appicable to a '70 as well.

Thanks a lot for that info and taking the time to type it up. What color should the door jamb bottoms be?? I scraped the paint off and they're green but the side of the rocker (the side of the "shelf" where the weatherstrip seals the bottom of the door) is green. I really need to know about the bottoms of the jambs. What about the woodgrain on the tailgate? Was this an option or was it standard on all Custom El Caminos? Thanks.

The door jams are the main body color. The top of the rockers are painted silver where in comes into the door jam. As for the top part of the silver where the chrome is, it almost looked like the door was closed and the paint was just like overspray in there. If you look at my homepage there are some pics of my '72 El Camino it has this silver bottom. As for the tailgate woodgrain, I know that there was a delete option that would add a black stripe in between the mouldings. I don't know about the total delete for everything on the tailgate. I have seen people not put anything on the tailgate and it looks decent, but I like the woodgrain.

Thanks for clearing that up. I couldn't tell that easily on mine because the door jambs are covered in paint and the jamb by the quarter panel has no bottom (rusted out). I checked out your El Camino page and that a really nice Elky you have.

Thanks for the comment about my car. I have a pic showing the door jam area w/o the door or fender on the car, but it is at home and I am I college.
It looks like the door was installed, but the front fender wasn't installed when the silver was painted. The bottom part of the cowl, the part the lower dogleg of the fender covers is painted silver and the upper is painted body color up to where the black starts.

I found it, the delete code for the tailgate chrome and woodgrain.

BW1 - Delete tailgate orametation. This would deletet the fake woodgrain or the black stripe on all '70-72 El Caminos or GMC Sprints.

B81- Delete tailgate molding. This would delete this would delete the horizontal trim stripes on the tailgate of a '70-72 El Camino or GMC Sprint.

The '68-'72 "Standard" model El Caminos & Sprints did not have the woodgrain or the two horizontal trim strips either. Most of the El Caminos out there are the "Custom" model, so most have it.
