The first letter of a two-letter paint code identifies the body color. The second letter identifies the roof color. (For example, the combination 51-50 on a Chevrolet would indicate the body finished in Dusk Blue and the roof area in Dover White.) General Motors paint code plate for all models except Corvair and Corvette is located under the hood at the top of the firewall on the left or right of the upper shroud. Hope this helps.
