If you have a car quest that deals in DuPont paint they have a book with the colors for each model year.

Re: Chevrolet Factory Paint Colors

You are probably thinking of russet brown and either santafe tan or buckskin.

x2

Additionally, the official names and color codes would also be listed in the info packets, which are stored in the GM Heritage Center Archives.

Go to this link and search on the model year you are interested in ('78 and '77 Chevy truck, in this case):

Re: Chevrolet Factory Paint Colors

This is an older thread but the cut off is 1978. I am trying to find factory colors for 1986.

Re: Chevrolet Factory Paint Colors

The same question, but different. I'm wanting to get factory touch up paint in a spray can. How/where would I go about to look for that?

Re: Chevrolet Factory Paint Colors

Most auto paint stores will make up a can for you. Helps if you have the correct code. Some can also scan a chip of paint and come up with matching color.
