Finding your Plymouth Paint Code
Finding your Plymouth Paint CodeLocation of Plymouth Paint Code
Plymouth codes can be difficult to find. In the good old days, they used to do their best to hide them on top of the radiator support, making it impossible to find due to the engine grease and oil which they hid under. Later models started putting them on the drivers door jamb where they belong. .
The typical color code format is:
However, only the BS is the color code. This can also be shown as QBS, PBS, TBS, etc. just to drive everyone crazy. The first letter is the mysterious "Year Code" which regardless of what the intent was, it just makes for confusing color codes.
BS corresponds to Deep Water Blue Pearl Clearcoat. Again, the G in the GBS is not part of the color code. Lately, Plymouth has been wising up and just listing the color codes as BS.
Two Tone Combination
Plymouth has many two tone combinations for some cars. Two tones are two different colors on your car. Plymouth did not do a great job with two tone color coding and often the secondary color information is just missing so this makes it impossible to know without borrowing a color book from us what colors you actually have.
Same Color Code, Different Name
Plymouth, like all manufacturers, uses the exact same color across many models and then will have a different color name for each model. It's the same paint! This is why the color code is so important to order the correct paint.
For example, BS above we call Deep Water Blue Pearl Clearcoat. It could also be called Blue Clearcoat, Ocean Clearcoat, etc. depending on what the marketing department decided to call it.
