CHASSIS BROADCAST COPY 147 "TRIM" BOX
« on: June 10, 2011, 04:51:14 AM »
Anybody know what a "V" in box 147 "Trim" of a '69 Chassis Broadcast Copy stand for?
Is that Green?
How is 723 midnight green specified?

No I don't, but I'll see if Kurt knows.

Hang loose...

V is light green interior (721).

Kurt,
....was the same code used for standard and custom interiors, i.e.," A" for 711 and 712, "V" for 721 and 722 etc...
I found a picture in my files of a CBC for a 59/59 car with trim code "W", is that midnight green and does it apply to 723 and 725?
thanks.

W is 723 and 725.
V should apply to 722 too, but I've not verified it. Some codes aren't what you'd expect sometimes.....

thanks Kurt,

looking at '68 CBC's it appears the trim block actually refers to the color of the hard metal interior items, i.e., dash face, top of doors, outer edges of the rear package tray, etc...
however, I've come across a couple '69 CBC's one with an "M" for a 713 car and one with a "P" which I think may have been a Ivory/Black or Ivory Houndstooth car, in either case, both use black trim so I'd of thought they'd of used an "A".
unless the Houndstooth interiors used unique codes, so go figure...

thx,
Mel
