SPECIAL PAINT DESIGNATION

Quote:
Special paint cars were identified with a unique paint code on the firewall cowl tag. Special paint was any non-standard Camaro color; it could be a GM color or any other color. (The Cadillac Firemist colors were the only colors not available. Since they had such a coarse metallic, the Firemist colors needed to be sprayed through a special paint gun.) In 68, if any of the four colors that were deleted mid-year (see footnote 3 in the Exterior Color table) were ordered in the latter part of the year, the cowl tag was normally coded as special paint.
In 1968-69, either deletion of a stripe or use of a non-standard stripe color was also considered to be special paint.

On the window sticker and on broadcast copy sheets, "1001AA" and "1001HA" have been observed as designating special paint cars. Note that all cars were painted, no cars were shipped from the assembly plant in primer.

Back in May of 1969 (in College) I saw a Fathom Green with Gold stripes, brand new Z/28 being delivered to Lee Chevrolet (Wellesley MA - I went to BABSON). They were literally unloading it when we arrived to get a part for my friend's 1969 Chevelle SS396

It's a 1969 Plymouth Cuda

You can tell by the hood scoops and racing stripes.

Many people think that the factory moniker "Cuda" started in 1970 with the new body style. They did add a ' so the emblem says Cuda'
