Here is a quick list of 78-81 A body and 82-88 G body Oldsmobile Cutlass interior colors followed by the RPO code and the paint code for ordering purposes for those wanting to interchange or restore parts from other years to restore their interior, paint chips are here:

http://www.78-88olds.com/forum/showthread.php?t=547

There were only a few pieces that GM used these codes for:
Dash, column, rear package tray, console plastic, console arm rest, dash lower column trim and speaker covers.
Everything else was color molded.

The semi gloss was used on the console plastic parts and arm rest, the top pad of the console body was color molded.
Believe it or not the flat stuff was used on the dash and column I believe.
I have seen low mile dashes and they are not shinny nor is the NOS Sage green one I have and just look at the lower column trim and speaker covers compared to the console plastic parts.
It's a little misconception since everyone coats them in armor all...
Rear package tray is flat.

No but you should use adhesion promoter and clean the hell out of it.

Would like to know if any of you are familiar with the color code L/camel 63? I found a donor pair of rear seats from a junked 1980 Cutty supreme and found the original build sheet on the rear seat frame. I really like this color and plan on doing my rebuild with this along with year code matching white for some trim. Thanks for any input.

Thats an exterior color code, the build sheet states the interior was a 62D trim package which is camel tan.
If you want a paint sample your local body shop could perhaps mix it up.

Rare Sandstone Vinyl Interior '81 Supreme:

Nice... I'm looking for me a set of buckets and a rear seat but I'm debating if I want to stick with the color I have now (which I don't know the exact name ) or go with a Midnight Blue interior ...

That's pretty, I've always liked the vinyl as well..pretty hard to find tho, especially in good condition....hey, 88 are u still interested in 83-84 maple seats? The weather has been crazy here & I haven't been able to pick them up yet.

Looks like you have the 78-80 camel tan color...I picked up a set of dark blue buckets & rear seat out of a 57k mile '82 Calais, they have the velour like material similar to what the 85-88's used..I have never seen a 82 with this material before..maybe it was an option???

It's a 78 I was just confused on the name of the color..

Yep. You have the dark camel tan. Used in 78-80 models. I've never ran across a nice set in that color around here.

Do you know what gbody vehicles that had Midnight blue buckets and rear seat as an options..?

The closest thing to "midnight blue" would be the dark blue used in 1980-82. Like the set I was taking about in the earlier post.

I see this an old thread but I am hoping someone can help me decide which interior color
is correct for my 1987 442---Medium dark gray or dark gray. I see there are 2 grays--have just come from automotive paint store with a glove box cover. The man had both samples but they were identical in my eyes. How can I be sure? VIN # --does it contain the interior code? Thanks Lee

I don't see anything in the RPO codes that tells me interior color. HELP!!!---Lee

The dark gray was typically used as vinyl dye code for the seats I believe.
Medium Dark Gray was used on the dash, console and columns.

I picked up some W12A8247 code spray to dye some upper sail panels and possibly other interior parts. Paint store only had this code in the system to mix. Is this Med Gray color the same as the factory gray on the sail panels?

Rare Sandstone Vinyl Interior '81 Supreme:

Greetings! New to the forum, and maybe this is a stretch since this is an older thread. But I am curious about the rare sandstone vinyl interior on the 1981 comment. Is that something that's well known?

I have been searching for my first car - a 1981 Cutlass with bucket seats in the exact color combo (interior and exterior) as you have shown. Hence my curiosity :) any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Stu
