Tech Tip - paint codes, names, chips

The 1954 colors are all there. The 1948 interior color(s) have often been the subject of interesting discussions/disagreements.

There were also different interior colors (in all years) for some of the different body styles (Panels, Suburbans, and Canopy Express often had different interior colors from regular cabs).


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.

I made this thread sticky because a lot of people have been asking lately. Thanks to the fine volunteer stovebolt staff, there is a good library of information in tech tips.

Is this the correct collor for a 49 panel dash/interior also.
There is so much information out there that I can't really determine if the dash is one color and the interior is another. The interior of my panel looks like a medium gray color and the dash has been painted over in Blue (ugh) and I want to go back to original color scheme. Any help would result in your increased Karma!!!

Still trying to get ole Betsy back on the road.

For my '53 1/2 ton I used the "chip" chart (see above) and Mr. Adler gave me a color code for the interior. I went back to the original color - Mariner Blue and the interior is a Grey matallic sheen.
