Re: Rarest Paint Color?

There was a Red/White Coca-Cola version, but it probably was not available to the public, when it was new anyway. It was probably a COPO thing....would that have been a "fleet" listing? or just "special"?
I would think that some of them have gotten into public hands over the years?

Re: Rarest Paint Color?

I had a 72 blazer that was "dark olive metalic" A few years after I got rid of that a friend got a 70 blazer that listed its paint as "dark olive metalic" both had the original paint but the 70 was more of a pine green(dark) and my 72 was more like grass green(medium)
Also his metalic seamed to be a silver my metalic seamed to be a gold. (maybe that was the differnce?)

Doubt its a rare color but always thought that was weird they listed the same but where totaly differnt colors.

Re: Rarest Paint Color?

Having the same "name" really means nothing, they were different years. That is very possible, if not common. What about the actual paint code?

I don't think copper was very common. Only one I have seen is the GMC cab we cut up to fix the truck we are restoring.

I think that would have been "special paint".Fleet colors were available to any fleet account (about 5 colors that don`t change from year to year) and special was per order by request.Probably "special price",too.

I know at one time you could order a commercial vehicle with no paint code at all that came in primer for you to paint to suit.A friend has a`60 Sedan Delivery that came primered from factory.He can redo it any color and it will be correct as long as it is era correct.

Re: Rarest Paint Color?

BTW, If you want the wildest looking factory color (or should I say colour?) there is, the lime green optional on canadian trucks is it IMO!

Re: Rarest Paint Color?

I just found this not so rare Grapefruit colored truck I had stored and just feel I need to confess my love of it to the entire world!!!!



You don`t see to many Wheatland Yellers.I`d put it in the not so common category.Less common than grapefruit:

<That`s a real truck,not a Hot Wheels

Re: Rarest Paint Color?

Here's a yellow truck that maybe is a little rare with the olive roof.
I found the pics going through my archive, I probably saved them from this forum at sometime.

I posted this list a whie back. It was in my truck when I bought it and I'm wondering if anyone has ever seen the Mauve color. I've been looking at these trucks since they were new ( I was 18 in 1967) and have never seen a Mauve one.

Re: Rarest Paint Color?

Old thread, but worth a second look.

Has anyone seen a '67 that came silver poly? I'm wondering if that '67 SWB stepper that is on ebay is the original color. I'm wondering if this GMC is that color.

Re: Rarest Paint Color?

Ah ha! After a second look, it is the original color! Check out the 523 paint code. That's the first documented silver poly truck I've seen.
