RE: [Chrysler300] NN paint code

My best guess is that the paint code is for a silver or gray color, but I have no official information.  My guess is based on the NN1 paint code on my '65 Barracuda which I bought new.  The paint color for my car is called Silver Mist Poly in some of the Chrysler literature but my '65 factory service manual calls it Barracuda Silver Poly.  I was told by my dealer when I ordered my car in '64 that this is the same color as was used on the '64 Chrysler 300 Silver Edition.  I don't think my '64 factory service manual has paint code information.

It might be a good idea to consult the IBM “Car Record Card� for that car to cross check the paint code.  Time, corrosion, paint and tired old eyes could turn a W into an N on the data plate.  Just saw off or cover up one “leg� of the W’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.  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.

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.
