1967 Yutivo colour
« on: September 22, 2007, 03:57:18 AM »
I posted this on camaros.net also.
Sooner or later I have to decide for a colour, I know it's kind of a long shot to find the original from the little org. paint there is left. But since I plan to keep the car original I thought it would by worth a try to ask you guys.
The paint codes for Yutivos has been lost long ago, so I can not go from the paint code on the trim tag which is 24.4036. I have to go by the clues we find as we strip the car, it is clear that the car was somekind of light blueish and since it is a 67 that leaves me with three options (with US trimtag paint codes):
1. Nantucket Blue code D
2. Marina Blue code F
3. Emerald Turquoise code K
The car will have 797 Parchment (white) deluxe interior installed again as when it left the Yutivo factory back in March - April 1967.

We only found the original colour some places inside the car and under the fenders and cowl vent.
Does anybody have pictures of stripped cars in either of the above mentioned colour, where the cowl area is shown - then please email them to me csn@69pace.com.

Here are a few shots of my dissassembled Yutivo:

Since it is very light blue I am leaning towards it being Nantucket blue originally.

And those with good eyesight will notice no hidden partial VIN on the Yutivos.

Thanks a lot Jonesy.

My IE 7 always crashes when I try to see you photo album - annoying.

I will go with Nantucket blue:

Try having the paint scanned. Should be easy to confirm the color.
