C10 Paint RPO Codes

C10 Paint RPO Codes

Last Updated August 4, 2019 | Meghan Drummond

If you’re trying to match the paint on your Chevy C10, then you’ll need a little more information than “green” or “black.” Car manufacturers give designated paint codes to specific shades so that you can more easily match the exact hue.

It’s important to notice the limitations of these codes upfront. Especially in Chevy’s early days, they changed code schemes frequently which can create a lot of confusion if you aren’t careful. Sometimes paints will have the same name but composed slightly differently from year to year. Depending on the year, 517 could either be a Maroon or a Lime. Other years the code and name changed but the paint color itself was exactly the same.

We have collected all of these codes and tried to note which years kept the same paint colors and which years used the same code but changed the color. If you’re trying to do spot touch-ups, you’ll always want to order a small sample first and try it out on an out-of-sight area before applying it in large quantities.

This is a comprehensive list, so to easily search for a specific color you don’t know the year for, check out these keyboard shortcuts.

If you have a Windows Machine: Use Ctrl + F (Control + F) to type in the paint color and find it in the table.

If you have an Apple Machine: Use ⌘ + F (Command + F) to type in the paint color and find it in the table.

Or, see every available color by year.
