Of course, without the appropriate production years I can't add them to the chart.
Another good thread about this topic is here:
I started a new thread to make sure the image and chart was the first thing you could see.
This is very nice...
031 Cygnus White from my 79.
That is cool as Sh!t chart.
www.coolcruisers.com has some more codes and years, not 100% sure if all are correct....
Yeah, I already found that and integrated that info into the chart. Keep the info rolling in and I will stay on top of it!
Awesome - looks great!
I just added the Birfield information into the chart as well. This is definitely going to be a long-term project in order to get it accurate!
Well, that doesn't help too much since it doesn't tell me which models that a particular color was available on, but it did let me color in a few of the horizontal indicators on the graph.
is freeborn red accurate for 71? I thought 72 and up? or did it show up in late 71?
i thought i read/heard that the freeborn red was only up to '79.
and i have a mar/70 that i'm sure is freeborn red.
Well, I combined three sources that all claimed to be experts.. and based on their individual claims I came up with that initial chart. There were several instances where one expert's information clashed with anothers. If someone can find out for sure I will make changes to the chart.
This page claims that Freeborn Red was from <71-84... not quite sure exactly what that means, but I interpret that as saying it was pre-1971 through 1984. Since it is not clear about HOW pre-1971, I simply started it at 1971.
Does anyone know the color code for silver/pewter trim? having a diff. time locating!
Toyota ash grey metallic, it's in the FAQ.
I had a late 71 that was Freeborn Red.
Thanks Texx, I understand that is a similar color but not sure if that is what toyota used for earlier years. I,m going to the local paint supplier to have a small amount mixed. see how it turns out.
I have a -68 and ive compared it to the red colors found on the net and i am 99% sure that it is muleta red but mine is european so maybe we got that color before US? Otherwise you can start muleta on at least -68.
Cruiser68 - thanks, I bumped Muleta Red down to 68. By the way, the page URL recently changed to:
Nit-picky but it does matter to some....FJ40 was 1961+ not 1958+ common mislabel.
FJ25 1958 to 1960. Colors were different too, find the chips and codes and I'll kiss you.
Separate names with a comma.
