What part of the Vin # tell you what color the car is OR is there a paint badge ?

Thanks again,

the VIN will tell you nothing, look on your spare tire cover, that is where your RPO codes are, that tells you everything that is in the car.

ok I called a Chevy dealer and gave them the VIN and they gave me a paint #, but they said there computers don't show any name for the paint color because of the age of the car.

The paint # is 40 U

Anyone know what color this is ? The name of it ?

OR

Does anyone know how to interpit the RPO Codes on the spare tire cover as suggested ?

Thanks,
Dutch

Is there more than one color of White for this car or has the paint just faded ?

If its the wrong color Rim and there is more than one color of White then I will exchange it before the 30 days are up.

Thanks again,
Dutch

I'm actually looking at a '93 SSE that'* white with color-matched wheels. If I end up getting it (guy isn't selling it yet, but he said he'* going to) I'm going to chuck those white color-matched wheels and throw on the blade-type alloys from my '93 SE. To helI with those color-matched wheels, hehe :P
