Warning: the following paint sheet is over 50 years old, and has been further distorted by scanning and by your PC and monitor:

1957-1958 Chevrolet Trucks Exterior Colors

1954 3106 Carryall Suburban - part of the family for 48 years
1954 3104 5-window pickup w/Hydra-Matic - part of the family for 14 years
Z-series (54/55) GMC 350 (2-ton) COE - now part of Dave's family
- If you have to stomp on your foot-pedal starter, either you, or your starter, or your engine, has a problem.
- The 216 and early 235 engine are not "splash oilers" - this is a splash oiler.

Most cars, trucks and years are covered there, EXCEPT 1948-1956 Chevrolet trucks (and also nothing for 1949-1956 GMC).

Pulsar Gray (PPG: 93-72130) was the standard color for 1954 Suburbans and it was the deluxe color for all other (cab body) trucks (panels/canopies had a different gray).

Pearl Beige (PPG: 21122; Dupont: 93-72389) was the standard color for cab-body trucks in 1954.

By putting in GM Paint Colors from 1947 - 1966 you will come up with the orginial factory paint color chart used by GM. Which happens to be Diztler aka. PPG. other companys also had colors there too. Acme had some orginal paint for the factory also. Du Pont, RM aka Renshed-Mason. This site has the orginal codes for the Lacquer based paint. Hope this helps some of you.

Denny,

If you select the second 1950 on their list there are interior colors including one for the steering column. There is a mistake in their list of years... they have 1950 listed twice but the second one is 1951.
