*Also used in 1965

Two-tone paint jobs are coded with two letters, with the first letter representing the lower color and the second letter representing the upper color.

NOTE: In 1966, there were three more colors available on Canadian Corvairs than on U.S. counterparts (18 vs. 15), and several of the names were different:
Royal Mist metallic was the same as U.S. Danube Blue (same DuPont/Lucite numbers), Laurel Mist metallic was the same as U.S. Willow Green and Provincial White was the same as U.S. Ermine White. Blue Charcoal, Cypress Green, and Plum Mist were used on all Canadian-built GM cars in '66 (probably with differing names). All three were not available on Chevrolets in the U.S. but were available on other GM lines in the U.S. (except perhaps for Plum Mist).

The first version of the '66 U.S. brochure (but not the Canadian brochure nor the revised U.S. brochure) states that Marina Blue, Chateau Slate, and Lemonwood Yellow were not available on 500s. I guess there was a change made either mid-year or perhaps before the cars were even produced, since the brochures were printed ahead of time.

Disclaimer: The displayed colors were scanned in 24-bit color using actual paint chip charts. Color calibration was achieved using a Matrox Millennium graphics card. They are best viewed by adjusting the brightness of your monitor to the point at which the black background on this page appears truly black. Please keep in mind that the colors are only approximate. If you are in the process of making an important color decision, I urge you to contact your Corvair parts vendor for actual chip charts.
