1968 LL1 paint with white interior?

1968 LL1 paint with white interior? - 05/22/14 06:33 AM

Hey guys,

I have couple questions. I have '68 Coronet 500 that I plan to paint LL1 Turquoise rather than the original puke green. Does anybody have a modern paint code for it? Who has the best color match in BC/CC?

I'm planning on changing the top and interior to white rather than the original... you guessed it, puke green.

I've found one pic of a Turquoise car with a blue and white two-tone interior. Was that available in 1968? What parts would be blue instead of white? Does somebody have a paint code for the interior blue paint?


If anybody has some pics... I'd love to see them.


Thank you

That is such a nice color combo. Probably my favorite on a 68 charger.

That car is beautiful... that is exactly how I would like the color to turn out. Do you remember which brand of paint was used, was it basecoat/clear coat or single stage?

What color is the carpet, dash and headliner in that car?

My 69 GTS was painted with 1997 Dodge Jade Pearlcoat and was darkened with black to make it look close to Q5. It was not quite right but my bodyman did me a favor when he painted it base/clear. Here is a pic, of course no turquoise cars come out on film well.

That's pretty harsh on members with green on green.
i thought'68 interior would have been pearl.

Yeah I may have been a little harsh...

Don't get me wrong... I'm not a green hater. I probably wouldn't change the color is was the dark racing green offered in '68. But this car is the color of guacamole

And my '71 Charger parts car sitting next to it is also triple green. I surrounded by green except where it counts (my wallet).

With the white interior, the following:

carpet = black
dash = black
headliner = white

This particular car was base coat / clear coat. Not sure about the color formula. The paint shop just looked up LL1 for Dodge and '68 and did it....

I haven't found a modern code for LL1. We use Sikkens paint at work and our mix database doesn't go back to the 60's. I don't have a problem buying the paint elsewhere... but that removes the luxury of mixing up a small batch and doing some spay-outs to see what it looks like it real life.

When I get my new wider steel wheels later this year... I was planning on spraying them LL1 to remind of my goal of getting the entire finished and painted.

I remember the day I got pictures of the door jambs and trunk area with the fresh paint on it while I was in Iraq. It was awesome to see that fresh paint.. Almost made me forget about the mortars that were dropping on our unit..

Funny thing about your Charger... it was reason I decided to go with LL1. I decided to let my wife pick the color for this car since she wasn't enthusiatic about my choice (Turbine Bronze). I showed her the factory color chips for 68 and she picked LL1, I wasn't all that excited until I saw photos your car on the Charger forum... and wow does that color pop in the sun.

PS. thank you for your service

My former 68 Roadrunner was LL1. I had my paint shop mix it off the PPG codes. I'm not overly sure if Plymouth LL1 was the same as Dodge's LL1, but either way, your paint supplier should have the code in PPGs inventory. I have pictures somewhere I'll try and dig up.

Yeah at this point I need to find a local store that carries PPG and at least get the mix formula for the paint in PPG. I was able to confirm today that Sikkens has no formula for LL1.

One of our painters at work is certain he can mix it with Sikkens if he has the mix formula for PPG, because it will allow him to cross-reference all the various colors and toners.

I may be easier to just go buy PPG paint but nothing beats having a buddy who is a painter that will spend the time to tint the color and do spray outs until I'm happy...

Hi, here are some pictures of a friends 68 Superbee in that color... it has a white bench seat interior. Its a beautiful car in a absolutely stunning color combination

Your Coronet will look great!

By the way I own a triple green 69 Charger (f8) and I love it and know the color you speak of. Puke... really? Why you gotta be so mean





Not the best pictures but all I have on the computer... if by chance you happen to see a copy of the "Original Dodge/Plymouth 66 thru 70 B-body" book put out by Motorbooks international there are excellent pictures of this car within. The author/photographer is Jim Schild.

Good luck with and enjoy your car

This was painted 15 years ago with Sikkens, base clear. Not sure if the 67 LL1 formula is the same as its called Dark turquoise poly. The shop mixed many samples before they finally brought in a camera and scaned in the original color to get the color you see here.

Here's my original LL1 and white 68 Coronet 500 vert. What is the best interior white vinyl paint that matches the 68 original door panels? SEM has a few color coat whites but not a pearl white, super white may be the choice. Not sure about the pearl white Herb's sells.

Thanks, Mike
