I see there are now official numbers on paint colors. My question was ,how many Brown vinyl top cars were produced?

This is my Z28 Camaro with brown vinyl top.  Pic was taken in 1982.  Top was faded.

Is there a way to post the 2 charts just to see the CRG estimates, vs what was just released?

I am curious how close they were, and if any colors were off more than others
thanks

Kurt, were you able to obtain similar official figures on interior color usage, and if so can it be broken down further by combination of exterior and interior?
Been here for months... http://www.camaros.org/interior.shtml#intcolors
Combo of ext and int - No. And imagine how complicated that table(s) would be......

I see there are now official numbers on paint colors. My question was ,how many Brown vinyl top cars were produced?
Did you see what Paul posted?
>Preliminary results through the end of Sept. show production at a total of: 1798 units.
This data doesn't go thru the extended production year.

Is there a way to post the 2 charts just to see the CRG estimates, vs what was just released?

Pretty close. There are archives on the internet....

interesting Hugger Orange dropped 3.5 from the previous chart from Crg calculations. So Hugger orange went from most popular color to 4th?

Kurt, Thank's,  How do the vinyl top color, production numbers break down. Are there any numbers on Brown vinyl top Z28's?

Thanks for posting that. Considering the limited data the CRG is working with, those estimates, overall, were quite impressive, imo.

Thanks Garth. I know of no other vintage Chevrolet (GM?) model that even has estimated color distribution.
Most changed less than a percent. Interesting that colors like black and HO were over estimated - tells me that those colors were on cars that were more likely to be saved (and thus in the db). And frost green cars on the other hand were not as likely to be saved.

That is also what I gathered from the difference in numbers. Just surprised me, that since HO was used a lot in the advertising, and many people gravitate towards a red-ish color that it wouldn't have been a #1 or 2. But I guess red was under represented, only by .7 but I would have though it would have been lower for the same reason, since those cars may have gotten saved more often and restored.

Many cars that weren't originally hugger orange got repainted to HO over the years.   Did the original data base derived data only consider original cowl plate codes? or the colors as reported by owners?

The colors in the db are from docs or trim tags.

Some of us spend hundreds of hours per year searching for, documenting and logging data. There has to be evidence to support the data when it goes into the database.

I wonder if reproduction trim tags can effect the numbers
A reproduction trim tag would more likely be made in colors like black, hugger orange, and daytona yellow

Repro tags are flagged and not included. Out of 21,000+ cars, they are decimal dust.

And remember all the frost green cars that aren't in the db in the correct ratio.
