I salvaged some parts and the body tag off a 60 Plymouth Sedan in a scrap metal yard many years ago. I was always curious about the paint code on it. I just ran across the tag again while sorting parts which reignited the question again.. what is PNT 991? The car was non-metalic light gray.

SO 0420
NUMBER 3036
BDY 203
TRM 101
PNT 991

.
Any chance that that 60 Plymouth was once a military vehicle, e.g. US Navy or Airforce? I think a lot of "99" code paints were "Special order", perhaps not available to the public. The public colours were based on letters. The "1" = single colour, not 2 or 3 tone.

I tried researching it here. Everything else comes up,but the paint code is supposed to be letters not numbers.

Body code 203 is a 4dr, 6 cylinder fleet sedan. Perhaps it was painted custom colors for order and that’s why it has numbers instead

Just read “56d500boy”s reply and what he says makes sense since the body code indicates it’s a 6 cylinder fleet sedan.

The car had no markings or numbers on it, but it was found in the scrapyard of Richland WA where they have the Handford nuke plants.

Alright, so 99 is special order. That is what I was guessing. Thanks.

No markings? No numbers? Blend into the desert gray paint? Whatever could they have been hiding?

"Established in 1943 as part of the Manhattan Project in Hanford, south-central Washington, the site was home to the B Reactor, the first full-scale plutonium production reactor in the world.[1] Plutonium manufactured at the site was used in the first nuclear bomb, tested at the Trinity site, and in Fat Man, the bomb detonated over Nagasaki, Japan."

I'm told Hanford cars of the time were marked "Atomic Energy Commission", but I'm sure not all of them. They must have needed a few unmarked cars to stop off at the bar for lunch.
