Look for a metal tag on the core support. It will give you a paint code that you can decode.

EDIT: Note: it will not say paint: eep. It will give you a bunch of letters and numbers. Look for and write down all two and three digit codes. Then look them up. Sometime the three digits ones are not the code exactly. The last two numbers of the code is the paint code.

Looks like Charcoal Grey to me unless its been painted...pretty sure Silver & Charcoal were the only grey/silver options in 85 and 86. Is that car a GT with 4cly wheels on it or is it a 4cyl with a GT front clip on it [&:]

Jalepeno Red
Med Canyon Red
Med Regatta Blue
Charcoal Grey
Silver
Black
Oxford White

Am I missing any others??

OK, looks like are right on with the 1D being "Smoke". I thought 85 and 86 had the same paint options but I guess I be wrong [sm=chairshot.gif]
