Need Help Decoding 1935 LaSalle Trim Tag
« on: June 13, 2017, 10:14:59 PM »
Hello- I am trying to decode the paint and trim information for this 1935 LaSalle Convertible Coupe. The car is currently the light yellow/cream color seen on the firewall with a black interior. Not sure if this is correct or not as I don't know what the paint and trim numbers on this tag refer to. Thank you in advance.

The colour code 76 was Admiral Blue.  Can't find anything that far back for Trim code perhaps someone else will chime in. Chances are it was brown or Tan Leather.

I can't tell if the paint code is 75 or 76.

Steve is correct about code 76 being Admiral Blue.  If the code is 75, the color is black.

My upholstery chart (from the 1940 Master Body Parts Book) does not show any of the following numbers for a '35 LaSalle (I can't tell if they are 5s or 6s in the photos):  55, 56, 65, or 66.  A chart from an earlier book may be needed.

HTH,
Jeff

I couldn't find a code 75 at all for 1935 Jeff let alone black so I guessed it was 76.

Thank you for the information. The paint code number is 76, so Admiral Blue was the original color.  I appreciate the information.
