Unknown paint color name and code
« on: August 19, 2017, 12:05:15 PM »
Hey everyone, I recently bought a 78 firebird formula in copper, but I am unsure the actual paint color name. Can't seem to attach a photo, the site claims it is too large of a file. The trim tag says heritage brown, but I have found no examples of this color. Any ideas? Thanks,

Did you mean Chesterfield Brown? Heritage is a '79 color.

My car is a mix between orange and copper, whereas chesterfield brown is a deep brown color. The paint code is 69 according to the trim tag, however the floors appear to be the color the car currently is.

My car appears to be a darker version of the 1980 color Fiero Bronze, leading me think it is some sort of earlier version of that color. Chesterfield, heritage brown, and brentwood brown all appear the same, is there something like this for Fiero bronze?
