Talking Post your green truck!

Hello forum!

I'm about to get my truck painted and I'm thinking green (duotone w white). But there are so many shades and I've no idea on what color code to go by. So please, show off your green truck and if possible, include the color code.

Cheers!

Re: Post your green truck!

This is mine. 1972 C20 with a paint code of 505. They're a lot of work when they're in the condition mine is in, but I wouldn't sell it for anything. It's all big bolts and no computers. I love these trucks!

Meadow Green(518) & white. There are paint charts that abbreviate it to Med. Green, but the brochure shows it as Meadow Green, not Medium Green.

Interesting and confusing. I think it was called meadow green in maybe 67-70? Not 100% sure. My SPID spells it out as "Medium Green".

1972 GMC "Medium Green" with a black top. Not sure what color the dark green front fender is. It's a replacement after a wreck.

518 = medium green (SPID) = Meadow Green (brochures, etc)

518 = SOLID med green paint
548 = Conventional Two Tone (i.e. 518 primary/521 secondary (roof))
484 = Deluxe Two Tone (i.e. 518 primary/521 secondary (roof and sides))

brown7373, as pictured, your truck should be RPO 484 paint - and your statement is spot on as it is 518 + white
