My friend just bought a '76 Coupe Deville. Does anyone know where the RPO codes are on that car. Looking for the paint code in particular.

There should be a body identification plate mounted to the upper left cowl between the hood rear seal and the windshield. Usually they are found on the left (drivers) side of the car. The other way to determine the color is to use a 1976 color chart. You can pick the make and year at this website and see all the available colors.... Click here.....

Although this isn't for your year or car, the information is generally the same... Junk...

I have found build sheets under the springs of the seats, inside of doors, behind the back seat and under the dash. Enjoy looking around for them, they left them just about anywhere, but are a great source of info!

Thanks guys. Will pass it on. I could have sworn there was a paint code in the trunk somewhere back then.
