Between May of 1969 and November of 2007 some numbnuts made it impossible to read nameplate info mounted inside the engine bay...looks like a heavy wire wheel got ahold of it. :doh:



So here's the question -

Can I determine the factory paint color another way? More of a curiosity than anything else...

Data tag on the inner fender only indicated engine family, Year Of Make, VIN/Frame number. In 1978 Toyota made a data plate that secured to the engine side of the bulkhead on the right side of the vehicle in the USA version of the 40 series. Along with the paint code, this tag also had axle gearing and transmission information.

What color is the under side of the dash painted?


What color is the inside of the pocket?

This is the best picture of the interior paint I have for now...


Don't know if it's Volcanic or Colorado (coronado) beige. 69 by the way...
