1969 GTO Paint Color Chips


Is it time to paint that old GTO? Compare all the choices!

The color shades may vary significantly depending on how your monitor's brightness and contrast controls are set. Of course, metalflake paints look drastically different when you look at them in different lighting conditions.
Thanks to John Hugentober of Lebanon Ohio for loaning me his paint chips!

Jim Mattison (gmman@123.net) from Pontiac Historic Services provides some additional information on paint codes:
Sean, Carousel Red ("T" or 72) was available as a "special order" paint color on all 1969 Pontiacs, not just the Judge and some Firebirds. A considerable number of 1969 non-Judge GTOs were painted this color. I have even heard some refer to this as a "Judge Delete" option, but no such "Judge Delete" option ever existed! Today, most folks think that if they find a '69 GTO with a Carousel Red ("T" or 72) trim tag, it has to be a Judge.........NOT so!!!
