Thanks for posting that Igor. I had never seen an Oriental Coral roof (and taillight area) before. Very handsome car.

Oh well. Thought I would share anyway. The back of the second sheet provided me with info that I hadn't figured out before, i.e. when the three tone paint code starts with 2, the roof and taillight area was sapphire white. If it started with 3, then the roof and the taillight areas were black. There is one code, 460, that had a oriental coral (red) roof, white saddle and black body. I have never seen a photo of one of those.


You got tricked by the sheets that list the Oriental Coral roof, Sapphire White Saddle and Jewell Black as 560-4. The trick is the last number, "4" as in the Oriental Coral, starts the paint code. So it is 460 not 540. (I've been tricked before so don't feel bad). This is an Oriental Coral Roof car (at least until we confirm the paint code on the cowl data tag).

I like this car too. Very handsome. In my dream world, fit a warmed up 354 and TF into it and call it a factory hot rod tribute. Oh yeah, and fit the flag emblems, bow and stern.
Probably scare some later year Dodge owners!


Steve.

Dave: Thank you for your list!

It seems that:

Code 51 = Oriental Coral
Code 52 = Garnet Poly

That list was developed by Bruce Faulkner, not me, but it does summarize succinctly the info that I have posted previously.
I will correct the list and repost in the 56 Dodge Paint code thread.
Thanks Igor.
