    Nice 87....what was different between the Canadian Exports & the American 442s? Any future plans for it? I've been liking the 87s more & more....there is one locally with 62k in nice shape...its been repainted & not to the stock style, Otherwise id consider calling the bank:icon14:

    GM heritage site or your cowl tag will have your paint codes, should say 18B or something along those lines, find them and I can look up the Dupont code.

    15L and 15U is for the medium Gray Metallic, upper and lower
    12X is for the lower half Silver Accent
    82C is for the gray interior
    CC1 is for Ttops
    A51 is for the buckets, non reclining
    Do you have the SPID sticker on the trunk lid still?
    In the lower corner will be the paint codes.
    Your car was not originally black according to the body tag unless it was swapped... not sure why you make mention to 19.

    Every color offered with the 442s look good on them...I go back & forth all the time...I wanted to paint my Regal white but I bought Daytona Blue instead just so I could paint my 442 white & have 2 contrasting cars....my 85 442 was origianally grey...I'm not as worried about painting it to its original color as long as I paint it to an Original Available color....so For 1985, I've got white, black, or silver....I like em all...Thank god I don't have an 86 or 87 Or I would have to add blue & burgandy to the options & I think they both look really sharp with the 442 two tone paint & gold accents....I just saw a 15,000 mile cutlass 442 on Craigslist in Arizona for 10 grand & it is Burgandy....Looks perfect...no t.tops but I could live with that....
