What color is my car?


Well, I'm getting the body fixed tomorrow (after my little accident...) and the new hood is of course only primed and need to be painted to match the rest of the car. But... on the frame of the car (by the door) is says PS4 or something, which I think is Platinum Silver????? The weird thing is that the car's color is "gold" according to the VIN - at least some of it... Since someone tried to break into the car through the passenger side a few months ago, they scraped off some paint on the door and apparently the door used to be red. So I have a Platinum colored car which is listed as Gold and with one red door. Can anyone tell for sure by looking at the pictures if PS4 seems like the correct color? I always thought the "gold" listing was crazy since I've seen plenty of Treps which ARE actually gold and mine is totally unlike those.

Ah, the joy of buying used without a carfax. ;)

I had a simular problem looking for my car color as well. I had to go to a Mopar dealer, and have them carfax my car. They said "Well isn't it in the door?" Actually mine wasn't, and I proved it to the guy. But in the long run my car was color code PMT. which is cranberry w00t w00t

There is a paint chart in this auction that might help you. I would say cinnamon glaze. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...946119840&rd=1

I bought a '99 new and it appears to be the same color as yours. On the window sticker from my car it is listed as "Bright Platinum Metallic Clear Coat".

Is is possible that the car was originally gold and completely repainted platinum at some point; possibley after the red door was installed?

I don' think it's Cinnamon Glaze, though. PS4 = Brite Platinum seems like the one, but I guess it's really hard to compare a color on paper (or a screen) with the color of a car which has xxxxx miles of driving in all kinds of weather etc.

He just picked up the car and will give it back to me fixed tomorrow at noon or so. The new hood is black so I'm gonna look like a oversized riced Civic for a couple of weeks before he can get to paint it. :(
