Q: Paint Code is SPECIAL-1 on My 1968
We are trying to get the body tag for our 1968 Firebird. The problem we are having is with the paint code. It says the paint code is special-1. Is there another code for that?
A: You have the “Special Paint Option” which is indicated by ‘special’. When the original owners ordered their car they wanted a color that Pontiac did not offer as an optional color. These colors in 1968 were normally Pink Mist, Carnival Red, Marigold Yellow, or Windward Blue Irid (Irid. means metallic with all others solid).
A: Keep in mind that some of these colors were a Spring release, late year option. Also any color was avaliable as an option if the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) could supply it. I’ve seen Cars with SPEC on data plate and they had an extra QT of paint shipped with them.
