I recently acquired some unpainted '68 Roadrunner HO slot car bodies. I want to paint them in the correct factory colors. I have a Dupont 1968 color chart, but it does not indicate which colors are Roadrunner specific. HELP!

Thanks in advance,
Marty

Thank you. I'm sorry but I don't know how to read the info. I see the the stripe colors and interior trim code, but I don't see the exterior colors, or I don't know how to cross reference them.

Match Dans chart to this chart (I hope)


Hmmm, doesn't seem to work. Google 1968 plymouth paint codes (they are letters AA, BB, etc)

That is what I have been doing, so far all I get are 1968 Plymouth colors, not RR specific.

Thanks,
Marty

1968 MOPAR paint codes are a single letter.

Nothing was Road Runner specific, Road Runner was simply a Plymouth B-body.
The Plymouth B-body paint choices are in the pic I posted above, the color codes have the red square around them.

STANDARD available B-body paint codes: A, B, E, F, G, J, L, M, P, Q, R, S, T, U, W, X, & Y

Some aftermarket paint charts will show the color codes as: AA1, BB1, EE1, etc. - this is simply showing that the car is painted a single color "roof & body". They also use brand specific names such as "poly" or "irid.", these are paint manufacturer's names for metallic colors & Chrysler Corp. never used that nomenclature.

QQ1:
Q = roof paint "electric blue metallic"
Q = body paint "electric blue metallic"
1 = mono-tone paint style

WM2:
W = roof paint "sable white"
M = body paint "turbine bronze metallic"
2 = two-tone paint style

FWIW - Sherwin-Williams "COLOR MANUALS" show the actual names the manufacturers used.

Here are some of the factory painted bodies I have:



The purple one in the front row is a resin reproduction molded in color.
