I was told it was saddle beige. I seen a can of that and don't feel that's correct. I'm going to try the camel it looks pretty close. Thanks

IIRC, Saddle was never a G body trim color. Saddle may have been the carpet color when you got Camel or Doeskin trim. Depending on year & model there was Dark Camel, Camel and Medium Doeskin trim. Dixie Monte Carlo Depot lists some Saddle parts, but I don't see Saddle on any of my GM trim charts. Let me know what year & model your car is I'll post the color. Better yeat, get me the trim info from the cowl tag.

According to the TCP color chart for '80 the #62 is Dark Camel Tan. The code #63 is the body color. Light Camel Poly

If you want the correct color youre probably going to have to get it mixed. My friend got a rattle can from one of the big Camaro parts vendors and the color wasnt even close. A good body shop supplier can get SEM really close if you have something the right color to match. I got a pint of tan for the dash in the 03 Tahoe we used to own and it blended it so perfect you couldnt tell it was even touched up.

63 is "Camel Poly". My car is 69, "Medium Camel Poly". There was no 62 , "Dark Camel Tan" for 1980.
