Interior color numbers for 67?
« on: March 19, 2014, 05:37:36 PM »
Hi everyone, new here, visiting from camaros.net 

Anyway, I used the excellent site to find the estimated number of 67s painted black (3%).  I'm wondering if there is a resource that lists interior color %'s, my car is black with the Parchment interior.

Also has some neat options, rs/ss, tach and gauges and 4 speed.

Just wondering if these other option numbers are known.

Thanks,

Jeff

PS, move this if it belongs somewhere else.

Black over Parchment would be a great one... give her an L78 and I would have to own it!

Umm, like this? http://www.camaros.org/interior.shtml#intcolors

"These estimates should not be combined with the exterior color use estimates because color combinations were not a uniform distribution."

Um, excuse me, I'm an idiot, or lazy....or both.  My bad.  I'll check out the other options, until I can't find it, then I'll ask.  Just trying to find rarity of the combination in a very simplistic way....

If CRG maintains a database of color variations, why aren't the lower production colors listed? My car has the Emerald Turqoise exterior with the turqoise interior and I've submitted my numbers to CRG. Just having some kind of point of reference in terms of numbers would be helpful...especially if they exist. If you had let's say 20,000 options listed in your database, I would assume the numbers generated from that sample would be fairly accurate across the board +/- 3%...

Because deluxe and standard interior colors were combined in that analysis.

  I think I see your point, the Turqouise  interior was only available in Deluxe interior in 67.  And I'm guessing very rare.

My first response was incorrect. Sorry.

>The five main interior colors for each year are listed below, meaning that some of the lower production colors such as turquoise are not shown.
Because the sampling of the database isn't uniform.

I'm sorry to keep pressing the issue but I'm just not understanding the problem. I'm a computer programmer for a living and I've architected my share of databases so I'm trying to understand why a turqoise interior would not be listed as an option within your table that stores information from decoded trim tags...perhaps I'm just not informed enough about the way interiors were coded on the trim tags? The interior portions of my trim tag decode as follows:

67-12637 = Custom Interior Coupe
779 = Custom Turquoise Bucket Seats
3S = (Z23) Interior Decor group

Is 3S (Z23) the deluxe interior package and therefore why the color is not listed? On the otherhand, since I have 779 listed, couldn't one assume that custom turqoise bucket seats means that the rest of the car's interior is probably turqoise in color as well?

The data is there. But the distortion in the data is such that any answer it provides is totally suspect.
It's not about getting answers, knowing if the answers are worth getting.

BTW, GM never published color data til much later. There's no info like this out there for any other GM model.
