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.

Thanks!

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.

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.

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. :beer:
