It might be a good idea to consult the IBM â€œCar Record Cardâ€? for that car to cross check the paint code.Â Time, corrosion, paint and tired old eyes could turn a W into an N on the data plate.Â Just saw off or cover up one â€œlegâ€? of the Wâ€™s. Otherwise a typo at the data input shop, emergency last-minute change order after records were cut or a mis-read at the paint booth.Â Search for original color under the heater box and on the firewall behind the dash and kick plates.
Code NN would be Executive Gray Metallic, which was an Imperial color (not Chrysler) in 1961. So it would have been special order on a G.

Subject: [Chrysler300] NN paint code
Does anyone know what an NN paint code means on a 300G? This is a white car, from the factory, so says the owner, which should be WW.
