Q:Custom Colors / Special Colors / Spring Release Colors
Just checked my paint code on my car (68 Firebird HT) And it says I-I —- Autumn Bronze and under the front fenders, Inside the doors, under the trunk lid it is bronze analyzer says custom color from other cars at customer Request I’m lost could use some help….
A: It is considered a “custom color” since it was not offered as a Firebird specific color but came from the Corvette. Autumn Bronze is the only one which I have heard got their own code, “I,” instead of the “SPEC” designation on the body tag.
Some body tags have “SHOW,” “SPEC,” “—,” or “PRIME” on them which indicated a show car, special color, or paint primer only. Have had a few people wanting me to tell them what their original paint was from this information. Interesting the things you could get done to your Firebird in the early years. Most of the “SPEC” paints were the spring release colors (Pink Mist, Carnival Red, Marigold Yellow, and Windward Blue).
