    Official Cadillac Color Names and Paint Codes

    I did some digging in the Forum archive because I had typed all these in at one time and it took quite some time and quite a few cocktails to get it all done! Straight from factory "exterior selections" brochures - - I found where I posted these after typing the information from each brochure on a thread I posted to on this forum 3 years ago. I am posting ONLY colors for the rear wheel drive deVille/Fleetwood/Brougham models unless otherwise noted. These color names are not the aftermarket or generic GM color names but the official Cadillac names for the colors that I typed out directly from the tri-fold Cadillac color chip charts which dealers gave to customers when these cars were new and I collected these along with all the sales literature for many, many years. Enjoy! Dave

    Re: Official Cadillac Color Names and Paint Codes

    So then would this be Diplomat Blue or Monarch Blue Firemist?



    I've always thought it was Dark Sapphire, which is the color of the touch up paint.

    Re: Official Cadillac Color Names and Paint Codes

    Sven, I will look directly at the color chart when I get home tonight and try to help get this figured out so you will know. My bet is your car is the monarch blue firemist since the standard diplomat blue color is dark blue if I remember correctly. How can I post scanned pictures of these color charts on this forum??

    How can I post scanned pictures of these color charts on this forum?
    If you already have them scanned and saved to your computer as a *JPG* , you can upload them to your user profile. To do so, go to you profile and click "Customize Profile," which is in the right hand corner of the page (on the same bar as "Send Message." After you click that, it will bring you to a page where you can change you page colors. On the left side of the page are task bars ("Your Profile", "Networking," etc...) under "Networking" is "Pictures and Albums." Clicking that link will allow you to upload the pictures from your computer and into your profile. You are limited to a total of 25 pictures.

    Once the pictures are uploaded, click on one to view it. At the bottom of viewing screen will be two web links. One of the web links (the second one) will have [IMG] before and after it. Copy and paste the [IMG] link into a post and hit reply and the picture will be posted.

    Dope, Where do you find the paint code on your own car? It's under the hood near the firewall on my 79 and I'd assume it's in the same place on your car.

    Re: Official Cadillac Color Names and Paint Codes

    Sven, I think your color is monarch blue firemist. Under my inside lighting it appeared the Monarch Blue is more of a medium blue compared to the diplomat blue which is a classic formal dark blue. I will look tomorrow in the sun to be sure. Can you check on your car to see if you have the color stamped on a metal plate by the firewall under your hood? That's the way it is on my old 79 which clearly shows color code 54. Hopefully yours shows which blue you have. Dave

    Sven, P.S., my scanner is not working so I will get a new one so I can attempt to post these color charts since they may help solve the mystery for you and others who are wondering about what color car they have. Dave
