Paint Codes & Names 1971 Dodge & Plymouth
« on: December 05, 2001 - 03:17:44 AM »
Here are the 71 codes and color names (Dodge & Plymouth used most of the same colors and codes but often tagged them with different names)

High Impact Colors:
Dodge        Plymouth (Same for Chrysler)
FY-1 - Top Banana        Lemon Twist
GY-3 - Citron Yella        Curious Yellow
EV-2 - Hemi Orange         Tor Red
EL-5 - Butterscotch         Bahama Yellow
FJ-6 - Green Go        Sassy Grass Green
FC-7 - Plum Crazy         In Violet

Other 71 colors- Non-Impact
Dodge    Plymouth (same for Chrysler)
GA-4 Light Gunmetal Metallic   Winchester Gray Metallic
GA-8 Dark Gunmetal Metallic   Slate Grey Metallic
BG-2 Light Blue Metallic  Glacial Blue Metallic
GB-5 Bright Blue Metallic   True Blue Metallic
GC-7 Dark Blue Metallic   Mood Indigo
FE-5 Bright Red   Rallye Red

GY-9 Dark Gold Metallic   Tawny Gold Metallic
GY-8 Gold Metallic   Gold Leaf Metallic
GY-4 Gold Metallic   Light Gold
GY-5 N/A   Crystal Dawn
GM-8 Sparkling Burgundy Metallic

*999 special order, many colors, could be nearly anything

I think Plymouth had a little better marketing effort, look at those names! Enjoy!


*I'll post 1970 codes next, some 70-71 codes were the same but there are MANY one year only colors, example: Panther Pink and Lime Light Green are 1970 only, Curious Yellow and Sassy Grass Green are 1971 only.

Paint Codes & Names 1970 Dodge
« Reply #5 on: May 12, 2002 - 11:03:44 PM »
Actually, Sassy Grass was available in late 1970... I should know.. I own a Sassy '70 R/T... Just ask Chryco about it... <grin>

Here's the breakdown:

Challengers were painted with acrylic enamel. There was a huge range of colours available to Dodge so there may be the odd car finished in a different colour to the ones listed below. Some even had 'special order' colours.

The factory TSB announcing the availability of FM3 and FJ6 is dated 24th Feb 1970. Only cars built after this date could be ordered with this colour.

'70 Challenger Paint Colours:

Paint Code    Name   Chrysler Code    Ditzler Code
EB3Light Blue MetallicAY2EB32018
EB5Bright Blue MetallicAY2EE52019
EB7Dark Blue MetallicAY2EB72020
FE5Bright RedAY1FE52136
FF4Light Green MetallicAY2FF42133
EF8Dark Green MetallicAY2EF843786
FK5Dark Burnt Orange Metallic  AY2FK52135
BL1BeigeAY1BL122542
FT6Dark Tan MetallicAY2FT62129
EW1WhiteAY1EW12033
TX9BlackAY1TX99300
DY3CreamAY1DY381575
FY4Light Gold MetallicAY2FY42117

And for an extra 14 Dollars you could have one of these High Impact colours:

Paint Code   Name   Chrysler Code   Ditzler Code  
FC7Plum CrazyAY2FC72210
FJ5SublimeAY1FJ52128
EK2Go-MangoAY2EK22201
EV2Hemi OrangeAY2EV22186
FY1BananaAY1FY12211

And after Feb. 24th 1970 you could also have one of these:

Paint Code    Name   Chrysler Code    Ditzler Code
EA4Silver PolyAY2EA42016
FJ6Green Go
FM3Panther Pink

Not sure where you guys got the info from, but someone on Alaskan Mopars had a similar post about paint colors and directed members to:http://www.autocolorlibrary.com/

I'm not sure if I'm helping or not as I am not up on body work and paint! But if it helps.......!  ;)
