I'm looking at a 74 GTO data plate with the following color code:
"WA 849" (possibly WA 848"). It falls between the interior seat style "A51" and the "PNT". Any idea what this means?

Thanks

The "WA" paint codes were GM's paint codes.
In 1974, GM WA0848 was "Tuxedo Black", but each Division (Cevrolet, Cadillac, GMC, Buick, etc) had their own marketing name for the color.
Pontiac called it "Starlight Black".

PaintRef.com - Automotive Truck Fleet Paint Color Code Cross ReferencePaintref.com is very handy for paint code questions.

Here's what it shows for WA0848 codes in the mid-70's: Color Codes - WA0848 Cross-Reference - page 7 of 11
Thanks for that response. I would have never figured that out.:agree
