1971 GTO Convertible w/ Rosewood(N) Exterior

I got my PHS docs. Everything matches on Vin Plate and Trim Tag to car and installed options.

What originally concerned me was the exterior paint color. Turns out its correct, I think.


PHS docs have a handwritten exterior paint code of Rosewood....N with no associated paint "number".

Trim Tag says - 78 A

Being that the docs are from PHS I'm assuming they are legit.


My problem is that I can not find any info on paint code "N" or "78" anywhere, including restoration guides.

Does anyone know if this was a special order color? Any info would help.

Thanks.

It's not a standard GTO color, but is a Pontiac color according to Joe's post. I checked a couple of sources and show nothing. Interesting that code is on the trim tag. I'm thinking it almost has to be a special order.

Here is one of the sources I checked:
1971 GTO Specifications - UltimateGTO.com



SOLD.....
462ci, 4spd
Performer Intake, Mild Cam
Pertronix Ignitor III
Accel Super Coil, Accel 8.8mm Wires

Glad I could help. On that site if you go through the Paint & Chip codes, I think there is 11 different ones, it will also connect to another site, which will give you the Dupont paint number to match the Pontiac code. I think there are also more Paint suppliers mentioned as well, so if you need to order new paint, it should make it easier to get some.
