Impossible to determine a color from a screen. Get a paint code. That value is too light as mentioned.

Have knocked on the paint code door....seller was son in law of deceased owner and knew nothing about the car.


It may not even be a "GM" color. I feel it's to dark to be Marina Blue


If anyone knows or has a guess, LMK

....selfishly, yes. I have received several compliments/?'s...."what color is it?" and IDK.

I can't take any credit for it as the PO had it done......but I do like the color

I am sure a body shop can match it and get a PPG#...and color name of that #

Thanks...The bottom pic was the day I got it and the 2 above are after the 2" drop

.....after several beers with a few car buddy's last night we determined the color is "Bitchin Blue"....so I will go with that :-)

Then the debate on which color Bumble Bee stripe to do....Black or White....I favor Black

and on the fence about wheel well chrome rings...….I am thinking NO but my other Camaro friends like theirs

Car came "un badged" (emblem holes welded) so going to keep it that way

I also recommend driving it to a local PPG shop and their color analyzer should be able to find if an existing or give you a code for a mix if you wish to duplicate it.

On search, Bridgehampton looked close. It was on a Vette

The paint chip on this PPG card, Marina Blue Poly is also close



….or a rendition of it.

A spectrophotometer will not always provide an accurate match. Tinting and sprayouts may be required. These devices are offered by numerous paint companies.
