finally i now know wat the production option 225 means, nice one. Do you know if wagons could've come with the 'a9u' option without it being coded? ie; a berlina wagon with a calais front, but not an export as the code suggests. (just tryin to work out whether my front end is aftermarket or not)

Sorry if it's a dumb question but i'm new to this and I couldn't believe my luck when I stumbled across the paint codes, because i really want to get it right (need to respray my front end).

thanks

Don't know if this was answered by anyone else but the D is short for Dulux

Most likely. That's the code for an SL sedan with 6 cylinder Exec pack (only used for turbo's in July and August 1986 and changed to A8R after that).

Is the SL/Executive rear centre console MX Grey colour?

They would sell this colour in touch up paint cans in Super cheap, repco wouldn't they?

Melbourne built cars are plated with that trim/paint combination code.
3038 is the code for 1J052 Alpine White with Cerulean interior.
Adelaide didn't bother for some reason.

so after looking thru this list i still cannot see my car i can see options but my paint code does not match up to the vehicles stated above 1F003-D yet my car in neither a fire vehicle nor a nitron (as far as i can tell) it is a base model exec with Limited Edition decals on the boot and along the doors below the bump strips/moulds. Apparently it is a dealer pack, also with the vin decoder it tells me my car is an 88 but it is a sep 87. Any help would be much appreciated also i was told there were approx 500 made but cannot find any info anywhere. thanks in advance.

Possibly a fleet colour, or maybe a trial colour. First one I've ever seen in it and I can't find 1F066-D listed anywhere. Holden had a 1F078-D Vermillion from the early eighties though.

They're listed already, but they have the wrong codes for the LE's at the top of that wiki list. A9Q was the LE code. State or engine didn't make a difference to the code.
