Imperial Paint Codes

Imperials used a three digit paint code. The first two digits are letters representing the paint color(s); the third digit is a number and represents whether the car is two tone, or in the case of the Imperial Crown Convertible, it designates a convertible top. The first digit indicates the paint color used on the top of the car, the second digit indicates the color on the bottom, and the third digit, if applicable, indicates the type of two toning, convertible top, etc.
