In recent times, their Volt plug-in hybrid and all-electric Spark have led the way in the electric vehicle market.

The iconic Corvette was launched in 1953 and is now most prevalent in colors like 16/WA213M Graystone Metallic. Also, the Corvette is a favorite racing car often seen at Daytona and Le Mans. In their century-long presence in the car market GM has sold over 500 million cars making them the 4th largest brand by sales.

Example: 636R

The above color code is from a Chevy Cruze 636R Switchblade Metallic Silver truck. Other examples include 50GAZ/WA8624 Olympic White and 41/WA8555K Black. Be are that Chevrolet uses different codes for the same color, so if you find multiple codes in your search online, this is why. For example, 51/GAO/WA316N all represent Gold Mist Metallic.

When you find your service parts identification sticker, you will be presented with a whole host of three-digit numbers. The Chevrolet paint code will usually be prefixed with "BC/CC U," this stands for basecoat/ clearcoat and upper color but may also start with WA.
