/member_uploads/5701_5800/5766/59A9B_KIMG0081.jpg Has anyone ever heard of paint code 001 on a 68 vette?

No paint code 001 listed for '68 Vettes. 
The only paint code I see with two zeros in it is 900 Tuxedo Black.

What color is your car now? 
Can you post a pic of the Trim Tag for us to look at?

There was ONE '68 that had "spec", or primer, but the paint code is not known. Other than that, there were NO other paint codes. All of the '68-'73 cars had paint codes that began with the number 9, EXCEPT any that came thru either int primer, or had "spec" codes.

Has that photo been modified at all? Not the actual plate, but the pic....it looks like it has been enhanced somehow.
Regardless, the car has obviously been painted by someone that dint care about not painting over the trim tag. The tag should NOT have any paint on it at all. Be VERY careful cleaning that tag...don't give in to temptation and use any abrasives to clean it. Use paint thinner/remover on a rag to get that paint off, if you do. That tag is pretty unusual....never seen one with a paint code like that. It may very well be the ONE that had no paint, or "spec" from the factory. Most of the "spec" cars did have "Spec" listed where the paint code goes, but not always. I've seen them with "Prime"(for primer only).
Have you tried the NCRS Tech Discussion Board for help? If not, I can post it there for you. I bet someone will have at least an idea....

Joel that photo has not been modified and no I have not tried NCRS for help, but a friend of mine had called a friend, who I believe is affiliated with the NCRS, he said that Pro Team Ohio has one.  If you would contact the NCRS Tech Discussion Board, anything you find out would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I'll post it over there, and see if anyone can come up with an explanation.  Thumbs Up

Can you give me the build date code? It's kinda hard to see in the pic. Also, coupe/convertible, small/big block, trans, etc? Last 5 of the VIN(if you don't mind. If you don't want to divulge the VIN, that's otay).
