Exclamation Re: colors

Because the Regal T-types and Ts were built on the lines with all the other Regals (and Olds Cutlasses) they were not considered all that unique. The engine/driveline package was nothing more than a package to GM. Their records going back that far are not well detailed with that level of minutia.

Basically, it is tough to determine how many XXXX color cars were built with the LM9 or LC2. Yes, we know how many Ts, T-Types and GNs. But many other details are more difficult to find.

My best suggestion for this type of data would be checking with Dennis Kirban. If he doesn't know, he will know someone that does. That is, if such knowledge is possible to have.

Find him via http://www.kirbanperformance.com/

I love this subject!
I have a 1986 Buick Exterior Colors sales brochure that lists all the colors (it has actual paint chips inside) and specifically what was available on the T Type.
So here they are;
White - code 11
Silver - code 12
Gray - code 15
Black - code 19
Light Blue - code 25
Dark Blue - code 31
Cream Beige - code 54
Light Brown - code 58
Brown - code 62
Rosewood - code 71
Dark Red - code 79

Wow! I just realized there were 11 different colors. If you just guess that they were evenly distributed that would be roughly 175 each color for the T Types. Some of the colors seem a more popular and some less so you can get a rough idea.

These were the generic names but the codes are the same across GM lines.
For example Light Brown is more commonly refered to as Light Chestnut.

I looked all over and others have asked Kirban as well but the answer comes back the same as what was mentioned; there just weren't detailed enough records.
