Hello 

Could some one out there tell me what the three numbers are at the beginning of the paint code on my torana - reads 567-12186

Thanks

Isn't the first three numbers the type of paint used?

Is 567 metallic and 568 solid?

The first digit "5" signifies "Dulon" ("Duco" codes all started with "2" and I can't remember the others off hand). I think the second digit identifies the finish (gloss, satin, etc), and the third identifies whether it's a solid or a metallic colour?

 

As above: 567-xxxxx are all metallic colours with a gloss finish; 568-xxxxx are all solid colours with a gloss finish; and 578-xxxxx are solid colours with a satin finish.

 

There were many others but I think those are the only ones that relate to a Torana.
