RE: [Chrysler300] Paint code question.

PPG/Ditzler agree:  Y= Rosewood Poly.          Not sure about the last character, the 6.  Is this a Chrysler with a vinyl top?  In 1964, Salons & Silver Editions had a trailing 9 in the paint code to signify a canopy molding and black vinyl top.  Maybe a convertible with the 6 designating a color of the top?  Column 28 on the ’62 IBM Card has preprinted for the last character in column 28: “ STYLING-CONVERTIBLE TOPS”  We note that a “1” here indicates roof and lower body are all the same color—and a “2” indicates a two-tone car.  If a two-tone, the first letter would be the roof color and the second letter would be the lower body color.  In 1964, a “6” in column 39 signified a black top.  The top color is not reflected in the PNT code for 1964’s.


So, John:  What is the line and body type for that Rosewood beauty?

What is the Color for this code? Online it seems to indicate tan but another source says red.

Thanks a ton.
